The Bacolod Sanggunaing Panlungsod passed a resolution Wednesday approving the request of the Bacolod City Water District to conduct pipe-laying activities at the Capitol Cabugwason Homes in Brgy. Mansilingan, Bacolod City.
Authored by Councilor Roberto Rojas, chairman of the SP Committee on Public Works, the resolution said BACIWA will conduct pipe-laying activities in the area in order to provide safe and abundant water supply to its residents.
There is a need to break concrete pavement in the area to install the pipes and BACIWA has requested for a permit from the City Engineer’s Office to conduct excavation, it said.
The resolution said the CEO, through engineer Belly Aguillon, interposes no objection to the request and BACIWA has committed to shoulder the restoration expense when they have completed the pipe-laying project.
Meanwhile, the SP also passed another resolution urging the Bacolod City Police Office through Senior Supt. Ricardo De la Paz to provide police visibility in Bacolod’s commercial, financial and educational districts, 24 hours a day and seven days a week, in order to stop the widespread incidents of robberies committed against students attending night classes and employees working on night shifts.
The resolution was authored by Councilor Sonya Verdeflor.*CGS
