Cops prevent Lopezes
from padlocking landfill

The Lopez family was prevented by the police from trying to padlock again the main gate of the sanitary landfill in Brgy. Felisa, Bacolod City, yesterday that was reopened by the Mayor Monday by exercising his police powers.

The 7-hectare sanitary landfill was padlocked by the Lopez family on October 4 after the city government refused to settle the remaining P3.8 million balance of the total P23.8 million cost of property due to the disallowance by the Commission on Audit.

Brothers Jose Manuel and Roy Lopez, together with their nephew, Teddy, were barred by Police Senior Supt. Edgardo Ordaniel, Bacolod City Police Director, and elements of Police Station 10 and the Public Safety Batallion from closing the main gate of the sanitary landfill yesterday upon orders of Mayor Monico Puentevella who had issued a memorandum directing Ordaniel to deploy a sufficient number of police personnel at the sanitary landfill on a 24-hour basis, in order to protect the government's property.moremoremore

“Our recent tragic experience calls us to strengthen our faith in God and in each other, as we help the victims of earthquake and the super typhoon,” he said.
