LP loses its mayors,
PDP Laban gains 17

So far, 17 out of the 32 Negros Occidental mayors have signified their intention to join the PDP Laban of President Rodrigo Duterte, while the majority of those belonging to the Nationalist People's Coalition and National Unity Party are opting not to leave.

This means Negros Occidental will still have 11 NPC mayors and 4 from NUP.

The Liberal Party will be left with no mayors in the province, with all 8 of its members joining PDP Laban. moremoremore

5 employees

Bacolod Mayor Evelio Leonardia has ordered a department head and four city employees placed under preventive suspension for two months pending the formal investigation of their unliquidated cash advances amounting to about P10 million from 2014 to 2015.

City Legal Officer Joselito Bayatan yesterday said they have just concluded the investigation on the unliquidated cash advances, so Mayor Leonardia signed the formal charge against the concerned employees.

Fish landing centers
eyed in 6 NegOr LGUs

The Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources in Region 7 is eyeing the construction of community fish landing centers in six local government units in Negros Oriental.

BFAR-7 director Andres Bojos said each community fish landing center will cost P3 million, and he urged the officials of Guihulngan City, Siaton, Amlan, Dumaguete, Sta. Catalina and Bayawan to put up their counterparts, by providing the land where the center will be put up.

Bojos lamented that the implementation of livelihood projects are delayed due to bickering and politicking between the office of the chief executive and the sanggunian. He said these livelihood projects are intended for the poorest of the poor fishermen, adding he was told that some mayors had a hard time having a memorandum of agreement approved by the sanggunian, including the authority for the mayor to sign the MOA. moremoremore
