BPFC gives P262K to city for Burnham Park fence upkeep
by Nonnette Bennett

Mayor Mauricio Domogan received P262,112.65 on behalf of the city government of Baguio on Jan. 29 as seed money for the maintenance of the Burnham Park Fence from the Burnham Park Fencing Committee (BPFC).

The amount, which was handed over by BPFC treasurer Rollando de Guzman, represented the net excess after expenses from the total collections of P11,733,377.86 from private individuals and institutions.

Domogan and OIC City Environment and Parks Management Officer Ruben Cervantes entered into a memorandum of agreement with Bishop Emeritus Carlito Cenzon, BPFC chair, to maintain the 782 spans of Burnham Park fences last Jan. 22 at the City Hall.

The fence project was undertaken by the Baguio Centennial Parks Committee created in 2008 under the Baguio Centennial Commission with then Bishop Cenzon of the Diocese of Baguio as the lead commissioner.

The then Burnham Park Development Authority issued Resolution 10, s. 2008, “authorizing the Baguio Centennial Parks Committee to raise funds from the private sector for the construction of the outer perimeter fence of Burnham Park.”

As a private-public partnership project, the total project cost of the 782 spans of the Burnham Park fence was P43,233,378.86 with the Department of Public Works and Highways undertaking P30 million worth or 544 spans and gates as part of then president Benigno Aquino III commitment to the project.

The city government of Baguio, from the funds of then representative Domogan, allocated P1.5M representing 34 spans.

In the MOA, the city government agreed to preserve and maintain the beauty and/or the utility of the perimeter fence and to protect it from vandals and unauthorized use and/or destruction so that it may serve its primary purpose of public use as regulatory barriers against destructive intrusions to Burnham Park.

In the financial report included in the MOA, de Guzman reflected that P8,508,101.50 was for the construction of the fence; P642,550 was for the panel boards in the fence spans; P323,073.84 for the construction of the Baguio Orchidarium comfort rooms; P960,105.75 for repairs and maintenance including the repair of the five spans damaged by Typhoon Ompong; and the rest of the amount for the operational and miscellaneous expenses of the committee.
