BY CARLA GOMEZ
“The top bosses of the Commission on Audit have spoken:the Bacolod New Government Center was not overpriced, and this should once and for all, put to rest all questions about the NGC.”
The statement issued by former Bacolod City Mayor and now Bacolod Rep. Evelio Leonardia yesterday was in reaction to a decision dated Aug. 28, 2014 of the Commission Proper of the Commission on Audit that affirmed the lifting, or setting aside of a Notice of Disallowance for P364,831,456.52 for the construction and site development of the Bacolod Government Center.
Flooding brought on by continuous southwest monsoon rains Monday and yesterday affected 1,669 families or 6,713 persons in two towns and one city in Negros Occidental, Provincial Social Welfare Officer Liane Garcia.
Two residents of Barangay 5, Sipalay City – Robert Tajonera, 26, and Aleo Delgado, 35 – were also reported missing.
