for Noynoy campaign


Milk cans, boxes and plastic bottles filled with coins and messages of love.

They told the sisters of Senator Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III that was their contribution to the “Piso Piso para kay Noynoy” campaign, and added that they are committed to work for his victory. moremoremore

Baciwa starts 20%
water rate hike

The Bacolod City Water District will hike water rates by 20 percent starting this month after its petition for an increase was approved by the Local Water Utilities Administration.

BACIWA general manager Juliana Carbon yesterday said the rate increase will be reflected in the October billing of residential consumers. She said water rates for commercial establishments will be double.

Carbon said they are posting the new water rates this week in the barangays and in conspicuous places in the city as required by LWUA.moremoremore
