Demolition begins at
Bacolod markets

The Bacolod City government yesterday began demolition of temporary structures of transient vendors along Amelia Street and Mercedes Avenue at the Libertad  Public Market  in order to put order in the market and to ease traffic in the area, City Administrator Roger Balo said.

At the same time, the city government  has issued demand letters asking stall owners of the three major markets and the Manokan Country  to inform the City Treasurer’s Office and City Administrator’s Office within 15 days how they will pay  their arrearages.

 Balo yesterday said it is heartwarming to note that the vendors at the Libertad Market dismantled the extended structures of their business themselves after reaching a compromise agreement with the city.moremoremore

EB Magalona Mayor David Lacson yesterday said the Negros ACE is passing a resolution calling for a total ban on charcoal making and logging throughout the province.

A policeman was charged for violation of Republic Act 7610, or the Anti-Child Abuse Act, and physical injuries before the Negros Occidental Provincial Prosecutor’s Office, and for grave misconduct before the Police Internal Affairs Service yesterday.

Police Officer 1 Eduardo Combong, a member of the Moises Padilla Police Station, was charged by Florentina Guinanao, following the alleged manhandling of her son who is a minor on Jan. 25.

The maltreatment was witnessed by Inspector Albert Sy, Moises Padilla police chief, and PO1 Alberto Estacion, who did nothing to stop Combong, Guinanao claimed.
