Neg. Occ. files appeal
vs. bonus disallowance
BY CARLA P. GOMEZ

The Negros Occidental provincial legal office has filed an appeal memorandum before the Commission on Audit on its disallowance of the extra year-end bonuses granted Capitol employees in 2015 and 2016, Provincial Budget Officer Jose Percival Salado said yesterday.

Salado said the COA provincial office disallowed the P30,000 bonus granted each employee in 2015 and P35,000 in 2016, prompting the recent filing of the appeal memorandum before the COA regional office.

He believes the disallowance will be overturned as the provincial government has completed the submission of the documents required to justify the bonuses, Salado said. It is just a matter of providing the required documents, he said, adding that extra bonuses can be granted employees as incentive if a local government unit has won an award for good performance. moremoremore

Bizmen support permanent
ban on pork imports – PVO
BY MARCHEL P. ESPINA

Provincial Veterinarian Renante Decena said yesterday that business establishments and merchandisers have assured him of their support in the implementation of the permanent ban on pork imports from Luzon and other African swine fever-affected areas.

The Provincial ASF Task Force, co-chaired by Decena, earlier warned establishments in the province, including Bacolod City, to pull out pork products from Luzon that are displayed in their grocery shelves.

But he was assured that they will support the implementation of the ordinance that was passed this week to keep the province safe from the dreaded virus, he said.
