Ceneco threat to cut power
diversionary tactic: mayor
Amid probe on controversial KEPCO contract


Central Negros Electric Cooperative president Edward Gasambelo yesterday urged the Bacolod City government to pay their debt with the electric firm or they will cut off the city’s electric connection.

Bacolod Mayor Evelio Leonardia said the debt Gasambelo is referring to are the old arrears of the city government, which could be traced back to 2002, and is not a current account.

In January 8, 2009, CENECO disconnected the electric power connection of the Bacolod City Hall, the city’s government center and other government offices in the city, citing the city’s failure to pay its accounts with the power firm.moremoremore

P200M set for north roads
but fund release delayed

Rep. Alfredo Marañon III Saturday said he is waiting for the release of P200 million from the 2011 budget so repairs on roads in the third district of Negros Occidental can begin.

Roads in Manapla, Cadiz and Sagay will be repaired, he said, but noted, that there has been a delay in the release of funds for infrastructure projects nationwide, although Congress had passed the national budget in record time.

“The condition of the roads after Cadiz going to Sagay is really very bad and, hopefully, we can fix them this year,” he said.moremoremore
