Bredco must pay higher rent to city


Bacolod Councilor Al Victor Espino yesterday said the city should negotiate for an upward adjustment, or increase, in the port rental from the Bacolod Real Estate Development Authority since its Internal Revenue Allotment will be reduced next year due to the creation of 16 new cities.

Espino, chairman of the Committees on Appropriations and Finance, and Ways and Means, has proposed a resolution urging the mayor to initiate or commence the renegotiation of the upward adjustment with BREDCO as mandated in the Comprehensive Revised Reclamation Agreement.

The increase in the port rental is one of the issues to be discussed in the executive-legislative caucus.moremoremore
