SAN ROQUE SLAUGHTERHOUSE HAS BIG PLANS

San Roque slaughterhouse has big plans for this year 2018. One of which is the possible conversion of its own wastes into a methane gas. “If that can be realized, then we can very well reduce our own electricity cost,” bared its city slaughterhouse chief Amelia F. Amar.

That’s what we call using our own initiative. Can other city offices follow suit, as well?

CEO ALLOCATES OVER P 5 MILLION

The City Engineer’s Office (CEO) has allocated adequate funding amounting to almost P6 million solely intended to address the often complained portion of the Tugbungan road whose overflowing of waters from its very own canals ignites persistent public indignation vs. the ZCWD and the CEO.

Unless, aptly and promptly cured of its glaring defects, the public outcry won’t just die down. And so, Acting City Engr. Chris Navarro took the cudgel of having such a road defect in that area prioritized for its immediate repair works as there’s this well-apportioned amount of fund aimed for said purpose. “Its road repair work will commence by March, and is expected to be completed in three-month period,” Navarro revealed.

One of the most outspoken critics against the ZCWD for its supposed apathy is (retired) Col. Rex Miravite. Miravite wrote the Ombudsman as he filed a complaint against the ZCWD for its alleged apathetic stance on his earlier series of complaints, but that they all fell on deaf ears.

On his weekly radio program “Pagbabago,” aired over (RPN)DXXX every Saturday (7am to 8am), Miravite lambasted the ZCWD for its alleged inaction on his persistent complaint about their supposed own defective project in the area.

Engr. Navarro vowed to work hand in hand with ZCWD to help synchronize their road repair project in the said barangay minus any hitches.

Good, Engr. Navarro.

ELAGO BLASTS FOES ON “GREASE MONEY” ALLEGATION

DIST. 2 Councilor Kim Elago, as committee chair on land use, said the city’s proposed zoning ordinance has to remain as is, or on status quo until the Talisayan rice granary be thoroughly resolved fair and square. What appeared to have clearly upset the city dad from Tetuan is the serious allegation that there was “grease money” involved to have the issue resolved in favor of one major stakeholder whose business structure has been long stalled due to its supposed non-compliance of its required ECC (Environment Compliance Certificate) from DENR.

“This is a serious accusation. How can it be when there were seven (public) consultation hearings conducted? Such an insinuation of theirs is purely malicious,” Elago berated.

He named his (Dist. 2) colleague, Councilor Mike Alavar who brought the issue in the August Body which he decried as without any basis, at all.

“Calentahan ya Pencing. Sila ba man kebrahan para vice mayor na 2019?,” aba c Bogs ta pregunta.

THE staled issue on the City Land Use Plan (CLUP) is good as approved, according to a top City Hall source. The source said Mayor Beng Climaco-Salazar is poised to implement CLUP at all cost, to fast-track all her flagship projects that’ll mean realizing her vision for ZC, and that’s to help “Bring Back a Better ZC” in the aftermath of the bloody “Zamboanga Siege” that erupted in September of 2013. The infamy cost the lives of hundreds of people and left in massive devastation of its five huge barangays situated near the city’s main commercial district.The  three-weeklong stand-off came about when some 400 heavily-armed MNLF attackers laid under siege  the city’s major urban barangays, namely: Rio Hondo, Sta. Catalina, Kasanyangan, Sta. Barbara and Arena Blanco.

ENGR. SICAT TO GET OFFICIAL STAND OF CLO

City Planning and Development Coordinating officer Engr. Rodrigo S. “Jojo” Sicat, however, said he has yet to formally get the official stand of the City Legal Office under Atty. Jesus Carbon, Jr., before making his own official remarks on the issue.

What I know of, on other key cities across the country, the issue of zoning for industrialization purposes, doesn’t fall within the ambit of their own City Planning and Development Coordinating offices. They directly fall under the City Administrator’s Office.

Ergo! This is another brouhaha in the making. (By Jun Feliciano) (30)
