Capitol hikes 2017
budget to P3.1B


The proposed 2017 budget of Negros Occidental is P3.1 billion, of which a large amount will go to the operations of the 13 hospitals of the provincial government, Board Member Salvador Escalante said yesterday.

Escalante, chairman of Sangguniang Panlalawigan Committee on Finance, said the 2017 budget hearings are ongoing, and it is targeted to be approved by the first week of December.

“The provincial government budget for 2017 is almost a xerox copy of the 2016 budget, the difference is in the increase in the amount needed for personnel services because of the implementation of the Salary Standardization Law 4,” he said. moremoremore

Task force vs. terror threat
reactivation in Neg. Or. set

The Provincial Peace and Order Council of Negros Oriental is set to reactivate next week its Joint Task Force in the wake of potential security threats in the province and nearby areas.

Lt. Col. Roderick Garcia, commander of the 79 th Infantry Battalion of the Philippine Army, stressed yesterday the need to reactivate the task force for collaboration among its members and to test the inter-operability of government security forces.

The JTF, composed of the Philippine National Police, the Armed Forces of the Philippines, and some government line agencies, was created sometime last year following a reported threat from the notorious kidnap-for-ransom group, the Abu Sayyaf.
