A resolution requesting the General Services Office and the City Engineers Office through the Office of the Mayor, to submit an inventory of government facilities and its usage, including those unused or unoccupied, is being proposed by Councilor Caesar Distrito.
The resolution co-authored by Councilors El Cid Familiaran, Em Legaspi-Ang and Al Victor Espino, said the Bacolod City Government has facilities that are being used by its offices, which were purchased such a long time ago, and there is need to inventory them as well as those that are unused or unoccupied for some time.
The inventory will guide the Sangguniang Panlungsod and other departments as to what facilities/equipments that have been purchased a long time ago and are no longer used by the city government, so they can be utilized, it said.
Meanwhile, a resolution congratulating the Philippine National Police, National Anti-Illegal Drugs Special Operations Task Force, Regional Special Operations Task Force, and City Anti-Illegal Drugs Special Operations Task Group, and Bacolod City Police Office for their successful anti-drug operation that resulted in the confiscation of P1 million worth of ecstasy on June 18, 2011, as a big boost to the anti-illegal drugs campaign in Bacolod City and Negros Occidental, is being proposed by Distrito.
The resolution was also co-authored by Familiaran, Ang and Espino.
A resolution declaring June 19-25, 2011 as the Environmental Week, with the theme “Kakahuyan sa Kabukiran kag Karagatan, Manggad Kag Kabuhi sang Katawhan,” is also being proposed by Council Al Victor Espino.
The resolution said President Benigno Aquino III issued Proclamation No. 125 on March 15, 2011, to launch the National Year of Forests in the country, in support of the declaration by the United Nations of the year 2011 as the International Year of Forests.
“As envisioned by the UN’s declaration of the International Year of Forests, we should undertake a national greening program that would engage the whole citizenry in bringing back the vegetative cover of our uplands, while providing them economic relief;” it said.*CGS
