Regular employees of the Bacolod City government yesterday aired complaints over the delay in the release of their salaries because of the repeated failure of the Bacolod Sangguniang Panlungsod to act on the request of acting Mayor Greg Gasataya to grant acting City Administrator Goldwyn Nifras authority to co-sign checks issued by the city.
During the regular session Wednesday, acting City Treasurer Giovanni Balilhe, said the salaries and wages of 1,575 regular employees are being drawn from the Land Bank of the Philippines, which requires a resolution from the SP authorizing Nifras to co-sign checks.
Their current funds with the Philippine National Bank is just enough for the salaries and wages of job order casuals for November and is not sufficient to pay for the salaries and wages of regular employees, as suggested by some councilors, he said.
A private hospital in Kabankalan City was shut down yesterday prompting the transfer of its patients to nearby hospitals.
Shut down by virtue of a court issued writ of possession was the Southern Negros Doctor's Hospital, that was padlocked by a sheriff.
A notice to the public posted outside the hospital said by virtue of the writ of possession issued Oct. 20,2 015, and a resolution dated Dec.1, 2015 in CAD case No.1070 the hospital property had been covered by a transfer certificate title in the name of the Philippine Investment One. .
