Together with Executive Assistant I Sarah Esguerra and Attorney III Cesar Beloria, Jr., Bacolod City Mayor Monico Puentevella said yesterday they are appealing to the Bacolod branch of the Philippine National Bank (PNB) to release the 68 titles purchased by the city in 1996 and paid for by the previous administration in the amount of P12, 492,000.00.

Puentevella said that these titles are "sleeping in PNB" for 18 years since they were acquired and now he wants these back, since they are legally owned by the city.

"Let’s give what is due to Bacolod. We want to get them back," expressed Puentevella as his administration is currently "consolidating, reviewing and acquiring" known and hidden properties of the city.
