TABUK CITY, Kalinga Two city officials are at the verge of losing hope that the operators of unfranchised or colurom jeepneys which consist about 80 percent of the whole public utility jeepneys (PUJs) operating here will ever legalize their operation.

Councilor Martinez Vicente and City Administrator Laurence Bayongan believe that the operators are just making an alibi of the moratorium on the issuance of franchises issued by the Land Transportation Franchising Regulatory Board (LTFRB).

Bayongan said that while it was true that there was a moratorium on the issuance of franchises, this was rememdied in 2008 when the LTFRB approved majority of the 19 developmental routes recommended by the LGU but they did not take advantage of the opening.

Bayongan said that in 2009, the LTFRB-CAR offered the Colurom Legalization Program but the jeepney owners neither availed of the program.

TABUK CITY, Kalinga, Nov. 24(PIA) -- The city government here is conducting a two-day POPE FORUM (Police-People Forging United Move) Dornat or renewal to forge a peace plan that would enhance the active participation and cooperation of the populace, prosecutors and the police (3Ps).

The event’s theme is “Igaw ko , Andog ko” (My place, my watch).

In a message, City Mayor Ferdinand Tubban called on the participants from the different sectors in the city to delve deeper into the root causes of the city’s peace concerns and come up with a plan that is responsive, attainable and people empowering.

He said that peace efforts have succeeded in bringing perpetrators to justice and that criminality rate has decreased but the real and lasting peace still remain elusive.

“I feel that up today, despite the programs on peace and order we have embarked on, the support we have extended to our peace officers, the advocacies we have conducted, I sense we are still far from really achieving a meaningful and lasting peace and order situation,” he said.

TABUK CITY, Kalinga – Farmers in this city whose lands are threatened by the Chico River should gear up for the worst because as far as immediate interventions that could save the ricelands along the river in coming typhoons are concerned, the chances are not good.

Kalinga District Engineer Alexander Castaneda admitted that when it comes to engineering interventions that could provide immediate relief to the farmers, the hands of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) are virtually tied by the inadequacy of funds.

That’s because all they are now depending upon to address the Chico River problem is their regular infrastructure funds and what Congressman Manuel Agyao can share from his Priority Development Assistance Fund the total of which is just a drop in the bucket when one considers the fund needed.

This is the reason the flood control structures the DPWH have so far constructed on the Chico River are piecemeal and therefore have limited impact on the problem, Castaneda said.
