Today is the last day of voter's registration for the October barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan elections and there will be no extension, Bacolod Election Officer Mavil Majarucon-Sia said yesterday.
Majarucon-Sia said they started the voter's registration on Nov. 7, 2016 after the May elections. The schedule had been set by the Commission on Elections, she said.
They are following their calendar of activities and do not want to be caught off-guard, in case the barangay and SK elections push through with everything still hanging, and want to be prepared in case they will be held in October, Majarucon-Sia said. .

CEO official denies
‘under the table' deals
BY JUANCHO GALLARDE
The City Engineer's Office of Dumaguete City has vehemently denied insinuations made by a member of the Sangguniang Panlungsod about unverified “under the table” considerations for an applicant to secure a building permit on time.
City engineer Edwin Quirit said yesterday that an existing process flow was being implemented at the CEO in acquiring a building permit. “The problem with some business establishments is that they want shortcuts by ignoring guidelines under the National Building Code," he said.
“When refused requests for extensions that are not allowable, or to do away with setback requirements, these applicants sometimes seek the help of public officials to facilitate approval of their applications," he added..
