Mayor orders Ramos
removed from Baciwa


That was how Bacolod Mayor Monico Puentevella ended his letter ordering  the removal of director Marichi Fong-Ramos as representative of the professional sector in the Bacolod City Water District Board when the Local Water Utilities Administration denied her confirmation.

In his letter dated October17,  Puentevella said "As the appointing authority in consonance with the law, I hereby order you removed as Director of Baciwa effective immediately."

The LWUA, through an officer-in-charge, Manuel Yoingco, denied the confirmation of Ramos appointment on the ground of "material misrepresentation" with respect to her claim as a professional, and the alleged string of pending criminal cases against her which was taken as a gauge of her moral fitness to be in public service. moremoremore

Suarez said the ballots for the towns are now at the Negros Occidental Provincial Treasurer’s Office at the Capitol in Bacolod City, and will be picked up by the municipal treasurers who will be accompanied by police escorts today.
