Demolition to start
for entry of Ayala


The demolition of two provincial government buildings at Aguinaldo Street in Bacolod City will begin soon to pave the way for the lease and development by AyalaLand Inc. of 40,481 square meters of Capitol property in Bacolod City that is expected to start before the end of the year, Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. said yesterday

ALI was originally set to buy and lease 7.7 hectares of provincial government property in Bacolod City in 2011 but a suit filed by SM Prime Holdings Inc. against Capitol officials delayed the move.

In its suit, SMPHI questioned the awarding of the property to ALI before the Bacolod Regional Trial Court.moremoremore

Mayor set to renegotiate
with Bredco court ruling


Bacolod Mayor Monico Puentevella yesterday said he will initiate moves to renegotiate with Bacolod Real Estate Development Corp. after the Court ruled in its favor in the civil case it filed against the city involving the “port takeover ordinance.”

The Regional Trial Court declared City Ordinance 454, or the “takeover ordinance” null and void for being violative of the Constitutional guarantee on the right to due process and non-impairment of contractual obligations.

Puentevella said “I would like to congratulate BREDCO for the decision and sympathize with the last administration.” He said does not want to pursue a case in court although he is not happy with the small rental it is paying the city so he will form a group that will renegotiate with BREDCO.moremoremore

Negrenses joining
nat'l pork outrage

The Negrosanons Kontra Korapsyon are staging a “Tipon Tipon sa Lagoon” in front of the provincial Capitol building in Bacolod City to air their outrage over the misuse of the pork barrel funds by the country's lawmakers at 9 a.m. Monday.

The protest will be held simultaneously with a mass public gathering at the Rizal Park in Manila and in other parts of the country on August 26, which is a public holiday, in observance of National Heroes' Day, to show citizens' outrage .

Bacolod Bishop Vicente Navarra yesterday also called for the abolition of the pork barrel fund that he called a temptation for so many abuses. The country needs to address so many needs and the theft of its resources must be put to a stop, he said.moremoremore
