vs. rising prices
BY CARLA GOMEZ
Concern has been raised that price increases noted in Bacolod City following super typhoon Yolanda may soon be felt in the towns and cities of Negros Occidental.
Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. has asked local price councils in the towns and cities of Negros Occidental to be vigilant and regularly conduct monitoring, Marlin Sanogal, Provincial Planning and Development Officer, said yesterday.
Prices of construction materials, eggs, dried fish, vegetables, and palay have risen in Bacolod City, the Negros Occidental Provincial Price Coordinating Council was informed at a meeting yesterday, said Sanogal, who is also the secretary of the Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council.
