Baciwa union jubilant
BY CHRYSEE SAMILLANO
The members of the Baciwa Union Employees yesterday celebrated the withdrawal of Maynilad from its partnership agreement with the Bacolod City Water District to undertake the water district’s non-revenue management and expansion project, by holding a “ boodle fight” in front of the Baciwa Office in Bacolod City.
Maynilad president Victorico Vargas, in his letter dated July 5 to Miya Manila Water Projects Inc. director Mai Flor, said “After careful review of outstanding issues, they have decided to withdraw from their partnership agreement to undertake a non-revenue management and expansion project for Baciwa.”
“The developments in recent weeks have made the partnership unfeasible and contrary to the best interest of the stakeholders,” Vargas said, in the letter that was furnished Baciwa.
