Court issues TRO
on bank fund use

The Regional Trial Court has issued a temporary restraining order for 20 days against the barangay captain and barangay treasurer of Brgy. Singcang-Airport, Bacolod City, their agents or representatives, directing them from further drawing and encashing barangay checks.

In his order dated Jan. 21, 2009, RTC Judge Pepito Gellada, also directed Land Bank of the Philippines-Libertad to cease and desist from allowing encashment, withdrawal and other modes of transaction against the account of  the Barangay Singcang-Airport, without any resolution duly approved by the majority of the members of the Barangay Council in a regular or special session held for that purpose.

Kagawads Rudy Yap, Abner Gonzales Jr., Simplicia Distrito, Vicente Sabornay, Rosinie Distrito and Jorge Abastillas had sought the issuance of a TRO against Barangay Captain Fernando Odango, Barangay Treasurer Roger Jaype and the Land Bank of the Philippines-Libertad last week. moremoremore

The bowl measuring two meters wide and one meter high and custom-made in Cebu City for P180,000 had a capacity of 3,500 liters. The broth alone was 1,700 liters.moremoremore

‘Re-application for
electrification illogical’


It will be illogical for the city to submit again its application to the Central Negros Electric Cooperative for electrical connection to the new government center, Bacolod City Administrator Roger Balo said yesterday.

On Tuesday, CENECO refused to accept the application of the city, claiming that the 5-hectare lot donated to the city government lacks a technical description.

However, city legal officer Allan Zamora said that this had been included in the copy of the deed of donation submitted by the city to CENECO. moremoremore
