BAC rejects Dynamic’s
garbage collection bid

The Bids and Awards Committee disqualified Dynamic Builders during the post qualification stage it conducted for the privatization of garbage collection in Bacolod City, after it found out that Dynamic’s business permit does not include the hauling business, BAC chairman Goldwyn Nifras said yesterday.

The Dynamic Builders was earlier determined by the BAC to have the lowest financial bid out of the three firms that participated in the bidding process for garbage collection and hauling services during the initial post-qualification stage on May 7.

Dynamic Builders offered a bid of P69,107,140.80 while Metrowaste Solidwaste Management Corp. offered P69,910,711.80 out of the P72 million Approved Budget for the Contract for the privatization of garbage collection in Bacolod City.moremoremore

Mayor defends coal
plants amid attacks


Mayor Patrick Escalante yesterday defended the planned construction of coal-fired power plants in Cadiz City, saying they are necessary for the economic survival of Negros Occidental.

The mayor was reacting to a Greenpeace statement yesterday opposing plans to construct two coal-fired power plants in Cadiz City, calling it a “clear violation of the 100 percent Renewable Energy (RE) policy established in Negros Island in 2002”.

The environmental group called on Escalante to immediately reverse his decision, “which directly contravenes one of Southeast Asia’s landmark sustainable energy policies”.moremoremore

New warrant out for
arrest of ‘top rebel’


An arrest warrant for robbery-in-band has been reissued by the court against rebel leader Romeo Nanta, after he jumped bail, Col. Oscar Lactao, 303rd Infantry Brigade commander, yesterday said.

Nanta, who was arrested in November last year in Cadiz City, was freed from detention in February, after he posted a P100,000 bail, for robbery-in-band charges, police records show.

The reissuance of the arrest warrant stemmed from Nanta’s failure to attend court hearings for the charges filed against him.moremoremore
