Guv, mayors to adopt
belt-tightening moves


Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. yesterday said he is meeting with the mayors of Negros Occidental and the department heads of the provincial government to discuss belt tightening measures in the light of the    P940,585,592 Internal Revenue Allotment budget cut next year.

“We will have to be frugal in our spending without sacrificing priority basic services needed by our constituents,” he said.

The Negros Occidental provincial government, and its 13 cities and 19 towns are faced with the cut next year because of poor tax collections during the Arroyo administration three years ago, Provincial Budget Officer Jose Percival Salado Jr. said Thursday.moremoremore
