Safari resort gets
notice of violation

Three Kagawads of Barangay Alangilan in Bacolod City have requested the Bacolod Sangguniang Panlungsod to allow them to appear at its regular session today to air their opposition to the construction activity at the Metro Safari Resort despite their vehement opposition to its its failure to comply with the mandatory requirements of the law.

Kagawads Donard Alimpolo, Alex Sauci and Roy Retiza, in a letter to the SP, said Metro Safari Resort in Brgy. Alangilan has not complied the required Environmental Compliance Certificate, building permit, and City Planing and Development Office clearance .

They said that, despite the order of the Sanggunian for the immediate stoppage of the construction activities on the site, it is being continued, in open and blatant defiance of the authority of the Barangay Council of Alangilan and the City of Bacolod.moremoremore

Guv doubts Cui has numbers to
win prov'l liga presidency

The Central Negros Electric Cooperative should give up its application for its under-recoveries totaling P414.6 million, after all it profited last year, Bayan Muna Rep. Neri Colmenares, said yesterday.

Colmenares, who attended the conference of the National Union of People's Lawyers at the Bacolod City Government Center, said the application lacks transparency.

He said not all the hearings on CENECO's application for under recovery being undertaken by the Energy Regulatory Commission will be held in Bacolod City because some will be conducted in Metro Manila.moremoremore
