P12.743M allotted for
4 water tankers

The Dumaguete City government has allotted P12.743 million to purchase three water tankers capable of storing 3,000 liters of water each and another 12,000-liter tanker for the Bureau of Fire Protection.

Jose Chiu of the City Disaster Risk Reduction Management Office said the acquisition of the water tankers is urgent, with the series of fire accidents that have occurred in Dumaguete since January.

The big tank will cost P12.5 million and the three others P81,000 each, or P243,000, he added.

Property donated for
social housing

The Sangguniang Panlungsod of Dumaguete presented yesterday a Resolution of Appreciation to the Perdices family for donating 5,293 square meters of land in Barangay Candau-ay, Dumaguete, for a low cost housing project of the Habitat for Humanity, recently.

The resolution was presented to Boloney Perdices and other members of the family by Vice Mayor Allan Cordova and the councilors at the SP session yesterday.

Perdices said his family had long decided to donate the land as they know that more housing projects are needed in the city. He added that they also want to continue the legacy of his brother, the late Negros Oriental Gov. Agustin Perdices, who started the housing project during his term.
