BY CHRYSEE SAMILLANO
A win-win solution to the impasse between the Board and the Baciwa management is believed to have been reached between the chairman of the Local Water Utilities Administration and members of the Board of Directors of the Bacolod City Water District.
BACIWA Board Chairman Lawrence Villanueva yesterday said he and director Marichi Ramos had a very productive meeting with LWUA chairman Andres Ibarra in Manila yesterday.
Villanueva said Ibarra wanted a win-win situation so he agreed to appoint an interim general manager for Baciwa at their request. In return, they acceded to his request to recognize the sixth member appointed by LWUA to the Board, he said.

Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr., chairman of the Senate committees on Local Government and on Public Works, yesterday held consultations with the governor and mayors, other officials and sectoral representatives in Negros Oriental, to get a “feel” of their priority development projects that need attention from the national government.
Marcos, who is believed to be angling for the presidency in the 2016 election, said his visit to Dumaguete City was aimed to collect information for his proposed creation of a national infrastructure development plan.
