SP approves P2.8B
Negros Occ. budget

Despite the election fever, the P2,884,929,000 budget of the province for 2016 was unanimously approved yesterday by the Sangguniang Panlalawigan of Negros Occidental, that is dominated by a local political party not allied with Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr.

It was recalled that the 2013 budget of Negros Occidental, deliberations on which started as early as November of 2012, was only approved by the provincial council, two weeks after the election.

Board Member Salvador Escalante, chairperson of the SP committee on Finance and Appropriations, said yesterday that the annual budget of the province was usually approved on the second week of December.moremoremore

Quadrant security proposed

Dumaguete City OIC chief of police Supt. Jovito Atanacio is proposing the establishment of a “quadrant security” in the city because of increased economic activity and more people during the day, and the petty crimes and other crimes involving property that go with it.

A security survey was conducted to determine possible sites where four more sub-stations are recommended to be established by the police, with the support of the city government.

One possible area is a portion of the Ang Tai golf course in Bantayan, Atanacio said, due to its strategic location at the northern part of the city, while three others may be established in the south, and in the rural areas. . moremoremore
