Gov't gets different
feedback on APEC

While Bacolod Mayor Monico Puentevella expressed optimism that Bacolod City will be among the hosts of the Asia Pacific Economic Conference meetings in the Philippines next year, Governor Alfredo Marañon Jr. yesterday said otherwise.

Citing feedback he got, Marañon said it seems that APEC 2015 National Organizing Committee inspection team is not inclined to believe that Bacolod City is ready to host the international conferences.

“Damo pa kita kakulangan (We have plenty of deficiencies),” Marañon said. He did not elaborate further.moremoremore

Mayor to file for
recon on CSC ruling

Bacolod Mayor Monico Puentevella yesterday said he will file a motion for reconsideration with the Civil Service Commission Regional Office VI after it directed him to reinstate Marlou Amago to his original position as construction and maintenance general foreman of the Bacolod City Engineer's Office.

Puentevella had also filed a motion for reconsideration with the CSC Regional Office VI after it granted the appeal of Mary Jean Ramos, department head of the Bacolod City Planning and Development Office, and directed him to restore her to her original position and pay her backwages and other damages.

Amago, who has been a regular employee of the city for 24 years, said he is thankful to the Civil Service Commission for acting on his complaint.moremoremore
