SMOOTH-SAILING FOR 2015 BUDGET 2015

FortunateIy it appears to be something like a walk-in-the-park for the 2015 budgets for both Bacolod City and Negros Occidental when compared to the one of the hottest political year of 2013, considering that the passage of the appropriation measures by both sangguniang panlungsod in the capital city, Bacolod in record time, and very soon, that of the sangguniang panlalawigan of the top sugar-producing province, Negros Occidental is nearing approval, without much difficulty unlike what the province ha undergone when the opposition=dominated provincial board deliberately ‘dilly-dallied’ approval of the money measure which almost brought the entire provincial bureaucracy in turmoil which nearly forced the provincial government to the inevitable reenactment of the 2012 budget to the consternation and misery of people charged with implementing basic services to the most needy sectors of society.

Maybe it was Divine Providence which intervened that the impasse was eased after the previous sanggunian members finally acted favorably on the delayed action on the much-awaited budget to the relief of the people’s anxiety.

There is one very essential trait that one should never overlook when attending a public forum or meeting of the minds especially where the supposedly learned and educated sectors of the community, especially when the topics or agenda are geared towards the benefit of the populace or the general welfare of the majority of people in a given community.

‘EMBARRASSING’

Indeed, what had been happening to the public treasuries of two cities and five municipalities in Negros Occidental for the past four or so months this year are "embarrassing", to say the least.

Embarrassing to whom? First, to the police forces in the Local Government Units (LGUs) involved, the city and municipal executives and the officials involved in safeguarding the safekeeping of funds that belong to the taxpayers and the entire bureaucracy.

No less than the Vice Governor of the province, Eugenio Jose "Bong" Lacson issued the statement with the tone of disappointment during an interview with media practitioners covering the provincial capitol, who have also been disturbed by the series of alarming instances of robberies and ransacking by robbers committing acts of burglary from the vaults of Escalante City, Bago City, the towns of Hinobaan, Cauayan, Calatrava, Valladolid and Moises Padilla.
