Waste hauling bled city P100M for whole of ‘14

Mayor Mauricio Domogan admitted Monday the city is spending huge amount for hauling of wastes, which could have been spent for other priority projects and programs.

ALTERNATIVE WATER SOURCE -- The more than 10-hectare rain catch basin of Baguio Water District at Mount Sto. Tomas, capable of storing 500,000 cubic meters, is full after almost three weeks of continuous rains. The stored water goes to another reservoir for treatment and disinfection before being supplied to households to the city’s southwest communities. With water supply becoming scarce due to population growth, BWD and the city government are planning to build more catch basins in the locality. -- HFP

Better tax collections cited as a major gain
Mayor Mauricio Domogan is dismayed that most road projects in Baguio are behind schedule and City Hall is suffering from public criticisms almost every day.

Financial stability due to business growth and good tax collections is one of the major accomplishments cited by Mayor Mauricio Domogan in his 2015 state of the city address.

FTAA bid by mining project backed by SP

The Sangguniang Panlalawigan of Benguet last week voted to endorse the Far Southeast Gold Resources project in Mankayan, boosting FSGR’s chances in applying for a financial and technical assistance agreement (FTAA) that would enable the foreign investor Goldfields Ltd. to assume control of 60 percent of the project.

Village chiefs in barangays in the Camp John Hay reservation are concrete examples of the saying that no one can serve two masters at the same time
CAUSE OF INCONVENIENCES -- The snail-paced condition and absence of crew workers in many road projects in Baguio irked city officials, including Mayor Mauricio Domogan, who echoed the sufferings of the public whenever road repairs go beyond the projected date of completion. Here, workers work double time to finish the road repair at a section of Quirino Highway at Irisan barangay.

SHARING OF BLESSINGS -- Convergys Baguio, one of the largest private employers that provide opportunities to job seekers from the provinces of the Cordillera and its neighboring regions, donates school supplies such as notebooks, paper, pencils, crayons, and over 500 "bags of hope" to pupils of Jose P. Laurel Elementary School.

GREEN PROGRAM -- More than 2,000 pine and citrus saplings were planted in a forest in Nganoan, Bobok-Bisal, Bokod, Benguet by personnel of the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines and residents recently. NGCP has assured high survival rate of the trees planted and the sustainability of its pro-environment program.

INCONVENIENT TRUTH -- While government and private establishments are being urged to comply with the Accessibility Law and the Magna Carta for Persons with Disability, some people remain insensitive to the plight of PWDs through various actions like blocking blue lanes and ramps with their vehicles. Society must be the one adjusting to the needs of the PWDs and not the other way around.

PROFITABLE -- Green farming is profitable, as the public largely patronizes organic vegetables and crops grown in Benguet and other parts of the Cordillera. The government is keen on subsiding organic farming practitioners for them to be certified either by the Organic Certification Center of the Philippines or Negros Island Certification, the certifying bodies of organic agriculture in the country. -- Ofelia Empian
NEXT TOP VENUE -- The PSC facility at the Teacher’s Camp, where some national athletes including boxing legend Manny Pacquiao have trained, is being eyed as an alternative training ground for most members of the Philippine Teams due to air pollution concerns in the National Capital Region.
