>Waste Management Project in Tagbilaran


City Mayor Dan Lim has agreed to meet with the Tagbilaran clergy next week in a bid to allay apprehensions on the mounting objections on proposed two waste management projects in barangay Taloto.
The meeting came up after some 400 residents in the barangay have signed a petition asking for transparency and proper information drives on the planned integrated solid waste management facility and centralized waste water treatment plant.
The residents, who sought the assistance of their parish priest Msgr. Feliciano Nalzaro, said more inhabitants near the project site have agreed to sign the petition.
Nalzaro told the Chronicle that some priests were asking for a dialogue with the mayor for them to be enlightened on possible consequences of the project as it will be situated near the Immaculate Heart of Mary Seminary which has served as a retreat and retirement house of the clergy.
The meeting was supposedly scheduled yesterday at the seminary in Taloto but was moved next week. Msgr. Jeffrey Malanog, the vicar general of the Tagbilaran Diocese and a close friend of the mayor, is believed to be behind the dialogue.
In a separate interview, Taloto kagawad Jande Relamida said there are many residents near the project site that were not informed of a public hearing where they could have aired their concerns on the project.
