Baciwa claims rights
to contested property


The Bacolod City Water District has the legal right to use the water source in Boro-Boro spring in the territorial domain of Talisay City, BACIWA general manager Julie Ann Carbon said yesterday.

Carbon was reacting to the claims of Erle Saosao Vadlit Gonzales that BACIWA owes him about P207 million in back rentals and easement fee for the use of the water source in his property.

Gonzales said the spring in Sitio Balogo, Concepcion, Talisay belongs to his family and BACIWA has no right to draw water from it.moremoremore

Wage hike bid for
WV hits snag

Labor’s bid for a P97 daily wage hike in Western Visayas hit another snag and has its representatives on the Regional Tripartite Wages and Productivity Board up in arms.

Wennie Sancho, labor representative of the RTWPB, last night said they were informed that the National Wages and Productivity Commission has ruled that wage orders issued by the board as a result of supervening conditions are also covered by a one-year prohibition rule.

The rule has been that, in general, RTWPBs can issue a wage order only once in a given year, except when there is a supervening condition, such as an extraordinary increase in prices of petroleum products and basic goods and services, Sancho said.moremoremore

Mayor: Politicians
exploiting new city revenue code issue

Bacolod Mayor Evelio Leonardia yesterday said he will hold a dialog with the business groups in Bacolod City today at the Government Center on some queries regarding the New Revenue Code of Bacolod and to give them the rationale behind its implementation.

“We know that some have questions, which is normal and expected. But we also want to make the public aware that there are politicians who are exploiting the situation,” he said.

Leonardia said it would be supposed that if a politician wants to serve Bacolod, he should look at the welfare of the city, instead of muddling this with politics, referring to an interview given by former Bacolod Rep. Monico Puentevella over RMN where he stated that he is filing a complaint before the Department of Justice questioning the New Revenue Code of Bacolod City.moremoremore
