Murcia mayor names
PENRO in NNNP mess

Murcia Mayor Andrew Montelibano yesterday accepted the challenge to identify personnel of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, who allegedly assured him that there would not be any problem in building his structures within the North Negros Natural Park in Salvador Benedicto.

Montelibano said it was Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Officer Andres Untal.

The Murcia mayor was among the 40 individuals issued cease-and-desist orders by the DENR, in connection with the construction of structures with the NNNP area in Salvador Benedicto.moremoremore

Sandigan requires P30,000
bailbond from Puentevella


The Sandiganbayan Fourth Division has required Bacolod Mayor Monico Puentevella to post P30,000 as bail bond for his provisional liberty during the conditional arraignment of the case involving the alleged anomalous procurement of overpriced computer packages for more than P25 million using his Priority Development Assistance Fund when he was yet congressman.

Puentevella also had to deposit with the Court P90,000 in cash as travel bond, which is one of the conditions set in response to his “Motion for Leave of Court to Travel Abroad” dated March 11.

Bacolod Administrator Rolando Villamor said the conditional arraignment was required because Puentevella requested permission from the Sandiganbayan to travel abroad, citing the joint conference of mayors of emerging cities from ASEAN nations (Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam) at Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy in Singapore on March 31 to April 1.moremoremore

CSC Region 6 orders
mayor to reinstate personnel officer


The Civil Service Regional Office VI has directed Bacolod Mayor Monico Puentevella to restore Gilda Lluisma to her original station as Human Resource Management Officer IV, and allow her to perform the duties and responsibilities of the office.

This was after it declared as invalid Memorandum Order No. 029-7-13, issued by the Mayor, reassigning her from the Human Resource Management Service to the City Agricultural Office.

Lluisma filed a complaint against Puentevella for abuse of authority, constructive dismissal and acts prejudicial to the best interest of the public, before the CSC and appealed his memorandum dated July 26, 2013.moremoremore
