Amend curfew ordinance,
biz sector asks city govít

The business sector is asking the Bacolod City government to amend its curfew ordinance to further stir the local economy, Frank Carbon, chief executive officer of the Metro Bacolod Chamber of Commerce and Industry, said yesterday.

He said that easing the restrictions on the curfew ordinance will mean more business hours at night time, which will increase the revenues of establishments, preserve and create new jobs, and generate much-needed cash and taxes for the city.

He said the increased sales will also result in more taxes for the local government unit, adding that the city has to provide a good business environment.

Some 3,296 farmers in Negros Occidental received P16,002,605 in indemnity claims, during the distribution at the Provincial Capitol grounds in Bacolod City yesterday.

Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson led the turnover of crop insurance claims to the farmers from the different cities and municipalities in the province, who were enrolled in the Negros First Universal Crop Insurance Program.

The program aims to address the gaps in the agriculture sector and climate change that have been adversely affecting the crop production and threatening the province's food security, he said.
