Dear Mayor Puentevella:

Greetings.

On behalf of your constituents on whose private property the Honorata G. Manalo Road (formerly Buri Road) was constructed, this is to very respectfully institute a claim for just compensation. The said road is presently being demolished by the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) to construct a tourism road, without seeking approval from us, much less offering us compensation for the taking of our private property.

We welcome each and every development introduced to our city, as we share your vision for “One Dream. One City. One Bacolod”. However, we believe this can be done without disregarding our rights.
