Mayor pushing for
land conversion


Salvador Benedicto Mayor Jose Max Ortiz yesterday said  he will push for the conversion  of the site where government buildings are located in his town, and some sections of the multiple use areas in the Northern Negros Natural Park, into alienable and disposable land.

He said this is necessary in the push  to upgrade Salvador Benedicto from a fourth class municipality  to  a higher category, and to bring progress to the town to reduce poverty.

Salvador Benedicto  covers 17,036 hectares of which one-third is titled land, while the rest is part of the Northern Negros Natural Park, he said.moremoremore
