Solon favors installation of
CCTV cameras in edifices

Rep. George Arnaiz (Neg. Or., 2nd District) said he will support the proposal of putting up Closed-Circuit Television surveillance cameras in all buildings and major thoroughfares in Dumaguete City.

Arnaiz said the installation of CCTV cameras will be a deterrent to criminals in doing unlawful acts since their identity can easily be traced through the cameras. It will also help the authorities identify a suspect for a possible lead of the case, the solon said.

The Dumaguete government has been discussing the plan to install CCTV cameras in major thoroughfares in Dumaguete City.

Drilon backs
rehabs of hospitals

Senator Franklin Drilon yesterday supported proposals to include state-owned regional hospitals and school building projects under the flagship government program private-public partnership, a move that will improve the condition of hospitals and health services and accommodate more public school students in the Philippines, a press release from his office said.

Drilon, chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, noted that included in next year’s budget is a P3-billion allocation for the Department of Health, which will be used as the government’s share in the rehabilitation of regional hospitals in the country, in partnership with the private sector.

“The regional hospitals are really in a very sorry state, if I may call it. They really need a lot of funding and many are in a state of disrepair,” Drilon said..

Endemic tree
seedlings planted


The Special Science Elementary School in Dumaguete City planted 1,400 endemic tree seedlings recently in an identified reforestation area in Barangay Janay-janay, San Jose, Negros Oriental.

The area is part of the protected area of the Balinsasayao Twin Lakes.

Grade 4 adviser Vennie Vic Concepcion asked the assistance of the Balinsasayao Twin Lakes Farmers Association Inc. in identifying the area suited for tree-planting, and the exact tree species that should be planted.
