NegOr police on heightened
alert for ‘Undas’ observance

Negros Oriental Provincial Police Office director, Senior Supt. Mariano Natu-el Jr., directed all chiefs of police in the province to prepare for the observance of All Souls and All Saints days.

NOPPO raised a heightened alert status during the holiday with the strict implementation of the Police Integrated Patrol System and three-tiered defense system, particularly on critical sites such as airports, seaports, bus terminals, cemeteries and churches, where people converge during the two-day observance.

Natu-el directed all CoPs to increase public awareness on crime prevention, provide the public with safety tips, and establish police assistance desks and centers in all cemeteries in Negros Oriental.

RTWPB meeting on COLA today

Members of the Regional Tripartite Wages and Productivity Board in Region 7 will meet today in Dumaguete City, on whether the Cost of Living Allowance of workers in the private sector in the region, will remain as it is or be integrated in the basic pay.

District chairman, Felizardo Calimpong, of the Associated Labor Union-Trade Union Congress of the Philippines, said he hoping for the integration of the COLA to the basic pay as it will have a better impact on the employee, in case of overtime, payment of 13th month pay, or when the worker retires, or is separated from the service.

Mayor: Road project will
be finished Friday


Dumaguete City Mayor Manuel Sagarbarria said the multi-million peso road extension-cum-shore protection project that will connect the boulevard from Barangay Piapi to Barangay Bantayan will be finished Friday.

The P3.4-million project extends the city’s boulevard to the north and will also provide protection to the fisherfolk and families living in the coastal areas in Piapi and Bantayan, especially during stormy weather.

Sagarbarria said he gave the city government workers a deadline before the sea gets rough, and that the issues raised by residents in that area have already been resolved.
