Church calls on
Baciwa groups to solve dispute
BY CHRYSEE SAMILLANO
The Diocese of Bacolod is once again calling on both the Bacolod City Water District management and Board of Directors to sit down in order to resolve their problem for the good of the consumers.
In his letter dated August 6, Social Action Center director Fr. Ernie Larida said the dispute between the Baciwa management and the BOD has worsened. Accusations meant to ruin and shame have been thrown which have caused the rift between two important stakeholders to intensify and the gap widen, he said.
The letter noted by Bishop Vicente Navarra also said dialogs have been called for both parties to sit down and intelligently discuss issues. Sadly, because of prejudice, preconceptions and the absence of sincerity and openness to truly inquire and listen to each other, these dialogs have failed. The common good has been ignored and relegated to the background..
