He stated, “We cannot understand why the DPWH is destroying good city streets for the purpose of constructing tourism roads.”

His observation was bolstered by the complaints of eleven lot owners which was presented to him by Atty. Pauline Tumonong-Nuega, who stated in his letter; viz;

Dear Mayor Puentevella:


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.
