SRDC tries to placate buyers

By: F. Allan L. Angelo

THE developer of Providence Subdivision in Pavia, Iloilo met with disgruntled home buyers Wednesday in a bid to resolve various problems caused by its former manager.

Realtor Rey Deang said the meeting happened at the office of Housing and Land Use Regulatory Board (HLURB) regional head Pilar Jamandre.

The meeting was called after some Providence buyers filed complaints with the HLRUB regional office.

Among the problems raised by the buyers is the failure of SRDC to transfer and release the titles to buyers who paid in full.

Other home buyers claimed that their dream homes have yet to be constructed despite complying with the standard down payment.

IPs seek PNoy’s help on mega dam delay

By: Louine Hope Conserva

THE Indigenous People’s (IP) Organization of Calinog, Iloilo asked Pres. Benigno Aquino III to intercede in the perceived delay in the construction of the P11-billion Jalaur River Multi-purpose Project (JRMP) II.

The IPs attributed the delay to the slow deliberations of the second Free Prior and Informed Consent (FPIC-2) to the mega-dam project.

The members of the community said they already sent manifestos to Gov. Arthur Defensor Sr., the National Commission of Indigenous Peoples (NCIP) and the National Irrigation Administration urging them to speed up the process.

They also plan to send the same manifesto the office of Senate President Franklin Drilon, the House of Representatives and the Office of the President.

The manifesto aims to push the NCIP to fast track the FPIC2 so that the actual construction could start and the IPs will be assured of the payment for their property which will be affected by the project.

the avenue

THE DEPARTMENT of Education (DepED) in Region 6 will conduct a two-day conference-workshop on the revised criteria for the selection of Brigada Eskwela Best School Implementors from April 25 to 26 in this city.

Dr. Eden Deriada said the activity will be participated by some 150 Adopt-A-School Program/Brigada Eskwela coordinators, selected elementary and secondary school principals, and district supervisors from the 18 divisions of the region.

Aside from updates on the revised criteria, Deriada said the activity will provide a venue to ask and hear the experiences and best practices of participants in implementing the program in their respective schools.

Since 2004, the DepEd has been recognizing the Brigada Eskwela Best Implementors through the Adopt-A- School program.

The ASP Secretariat has revised the criteria as a result of the consultation meeting with the ASP Regional Coordinators in November last year at Cebu City and as part of its effort to further improve the selection process, according to a DepEd press report.

The revised criteria will be implemented this school year 2012-2013.

In a national awarding held last year, two schools from the region were recognized as Brigada Eskwela Hall of Fame awardees after they were chosen as Best School Implementors in the region for three consecutive years. These are the Minuyan Elementary School of Murcia in Negros Occidental and Maayon National High School in Maayon, Capiz.

Brigada Eskwela, also known as the National Schools Maintenance, ensures that public schools in the country are ready for the opening of school year in June through the support and cooperation of all education stakeholders both from the private and public sectors. This year, it will be held from May 21 to 26.
