Mabilog stonewalls traffic lights probe
By: Wenceslao E. Mateo Jr.Jr.
ILOILO City Mayor Jed Patrick Mabilog has ordered executive department heads not to attend subsequent hearings of the Sangguniang Panlungsod on the traffic lights deal.
Mabilog issued the order July 28, a week after key department chiefs attended the first hearing July 21.
“This is the personal decision of the mayor. All inquiries or queries from the SP or any SP committee on the traffic lights will already be entertained through proper correspondence and communications and by way of documents,” said Jeffrey Celiz, Mabilog’s political adviser-cum-spokesman.
The latest order came to fore after Councilors Jason Gonzales and Plaridel Nava, who are leading the probe, complained that bid documents of traffic lights supplier Triune Electronics System were missing.
‘Next APEC meetings more challenging’
By: Wenceslao E. Mateo Jr.
INSPIRED by the successful holding of the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Senior Officials Meeting July 23-24, the APEC local organizing committee (LOC) is already gearing up for three major meetings in Iloilo City in September and October 2015.
Junel Anne Divinagracia, APEC-LOC executive director, said the next three meetings will entail more funds and bigger manpower.
“This first APEC meeting in the city cost the city about P500,000 million and the national government around P1.3 million. But we will definitely spend more for the three APEC meetings in September and October and will be needing a large workforce for the preparations and do the actual chores when we already host these three activities,” Divnagracia observed.
