The public should report substandard infrastructures constructed by private contractors.

This is the call of Atty. Alejandria Gomez, officer in charge of the Philippine Contractors Accreditation Board (PCAB) recently.

Gomez told Negros Daily Bulletin that PCAB, an attached agency of the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), said they can conduct an investigation

Gomez told Negros Daily Bulletin that PCAB, an attached agency of the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), said they can conduct an investigation against erring contractors but there should be a formal complaint.

“We cannot monitor what is happening all over the Philippines. We only have the DTI’s local offices and the local contractors associations,” she said.

She said the mandate of PCAB is to issue or deny licenses based on qualifications, to suspend or revoke licences of erring contractors and issue rules and regulations governing the construction industry.

Under R.A. 4566 as amended by P.D. No. 1746 provides that no contractor (including sub-contractor and specialty contractor) shall engage in the business of contracting without first having secured a PCAB license to conduct business.

Any merger or unification between the United Negros Alliance and the Love Negros team, “will be complicated”, according to former governor Rafael Coscolluella.

HONORING BACOLOD COPS. Jollibee and Greenwich Ponce Group headed by Mrs. Lucy Ponce, Ma'am Marigold Ponce-Tangco and Sir Junjun Ponce as franchisees represented by their Managing Director, Ms. Sweet Leonoras and Group Manager, Ms. Gesila Cortez give free breakfast meal to Bacolod City Police Office (BCPO) personnel as a thanksgiving, with a theme "Salute to our Police, 'Salamat sa inyo Serbisyo sa Pumuluyo sang Ciudad sang Bacolod'".*

‘ERASED IN VALLADOLID’. Valladolid Sangguniang Bayan member Shirley Nacion scored the alleged order of the mayor to either delete or cover her name in tarpaulins printed by women’s groups thanking her for her support through livelihood projects. Note the tarps above, with her name erased “or else the tarps will not be allowed to be displayed,” during the town fiesta’s Agro-Industrial Fair.

Coscolluela yesterday said the proposal is “maha-pos istoryahan sa babaw pero pag-tupa sa dalum kompli-kado.”

He said that he really has no idea or any detail of the proposed merger between the two political groups in the province.

“What I know is someone wants the merger para wala gamo,” he said.

For his part, Governor Alfredo Marañon Jr. has remained mum on the merger talks.

Kabankalan Mayor Isidro Zayco, for his part, told Capitol reporters that he too has no idea of the talks on the proposal.

Zayco, the provincial chairman of the Nationalist People’s Coalition (NPC) pointed to Rep. Alfredo Benitez (3rd district) as the one initiating the talks with Marañon, the UNA head.

“Personally, the merger will maintain the unity in Negros,” he said.

Coscolluela said he has no plans to return to politics next year as a possible vice gubernatorial candidate.
