Vallacar donates P3.9 shuttle bus. Rightfully, the city mayor-lawyer made sure that the Sanggunian authorize him to sign a deed of donation to receive this first of three donated tourist buses from Vallacar transit or Ceres Liner, which is the “king of the road” in Negros Island. Lesson is learned from the “lost” bullet proof vests which were not covered by donation papers and is now lost.

      Mayor gives up P6M intel fund    

While other local government units LGUs “scamper” to maximize and salvage as much intelligence funds which are accountable only to the COA, the city mayor of Dumaguete Atty Felipe Remollo, instead gave up P6Million in intelligence funds in favor of other essential appropriations which are wanting.

Unlike other Local Government Units, Dumaguete City Mayor Felipe Remollo has decided to give up the P 6 million confidential/intelligence fund so that the amount will be appropriated for other essential projects.

These are for sports development, women empowerment, persons with disabilities, senior citizens and other operating expenses. Intelligence fund is money to be used for crime prevention and detection. It can be sourced thru the Sanggunian appropriations, Mayor Remollo said.

Previously, in some LGUs there have been controversies...




One does not have to be a diplomat in order to be a statesman. Like one does not have to go to school and study etiquette in order to be a person of good manners. It is a matter of good or bad breeding. It is inherent to the culture and character of a person. If that is how a tree is planted, so will its fruits be.

Duterte has an internal problem:

He is turned between two lovers. The left and the right. See, nobody can serve two masters. He has very close leftist friends in the palace, whom we know, and he also wants to retain USA support. A very tall order. He wants oil and water to mix at the same time. A utopia?




The Sanggunian majority and the City administration are one in fasttracking an air-tight ordinance, of towing outright, noisy motorcycles that fit into their forthcoming legislation that will outright establish a prima facie evidence as such , hopefully to gain an effective enforcement of the new law.

The forthcoming specific ordinance now being fine-tuned by the city councilors, will cover both parked and moving noisy motorcycles. When caught parked in public places, traffic enforcers will simply call the task force units to tow motorbikes with tampered mufflers and without silencers and brought to an impounding area. The main issue is a tampered muffler without silencers that produces noisy sound when running.

There, at the impounding areas, the owners will be given a chance to air their side and disprove the charges. If they contest the findings, a case will immediately be filed mandating its immediate and further impounding, and only to be released when the proper muffler and silencer is installed so as not to become a public nuisance. If possible, there will be no fines, but proper silencers are required to be installed at the expense of the owner prior to its release from the impounding area. Otherwise, the tampered motorcycle will stay impounded, until all requirements of the law are complied with.

right time."
