New ‘Patay' tarps up
but smaller, no names
Team Tatay called diversionary tactic

No names this time.

The Diocese of Bacolod has put up new “Team Patay” tarpaulins in about 30 Catholic churches in Metro Bacolod but, this time, they are smaller and bear no names of senatorial candidates who voted for or against the Reproductive Health Law, Vicar General Msgr. Louie Galbines said yesterday.

The smaller version printed over a yellow background that is the Church color bears the message: “Diocese of Bacolod Pro-Life Forever, Team Patay Never.”

Private firm set to start
garbage collection soon

Vicente Petierre III, Bacolod Sangguniang Panlungsod secretary, said the Metrowaste Solidwaste Management Corp. may start its operation on March 16 after it is issued a notice to proceed by the Mayor.

Petierre, a member of the Bids and Awards Committee, said they will forward to Mayor Evelio Leonardia today the contract for the privatization and hauling services of garbage collection between the Metrowaste and the city government, that was ratified by the SP last week.

He said the Mayor will then issue a notice to proceed to Metrowaste, the contractor that won the bidding for the privatization of garbage collection in Bacolod, and it will have 10 days from receipt of the notice to implement the project.moremoremore

BFP names fire prone
areas in city


Barangays 1, 16, Banago, Bata and Sincang-Airport in Bacolod City are considered fire-prone, the assessment made by the Bureau of Fire Protection showed, Insp. Publio Ploteña, said yesterday.

Ploteña said there are areas in these barangays like Rodriguez Baybay in Brgy. 16 and Sitio Magsungay in Brgy. Singcang-Airport with narrow pathways making it difficult for firemen to respond during fire incidents.

He said they will conduct a house-to-house fire prevention campaign in these areas, and in other places in Bacolod this week as part of their fire-prevention month activities.moremoremore
