CBAO to Shed Light on the Ongoing City Hall Improvement
April 11, 2015
BAGUIO CITY – The on-going construction in front of the city hall has caused some negative feedbacks pointing out Republic Act 10066 also known as “An act providing for the protection and conservation of the National Cultural Heritage, strengthening the National Commission for Culture and Arts (NCCA) and its affiliated cultural agencies , and for other purposes”.
During the city council session last Monday, it was agreed by the august body to further evaluate and validate the declaration of the Baguio city hall and its premises as one of the national heritage sites of the Philippines.
Thus, Councilor Faustino Olowan introduced a proposed resolution inviting the City Buildings and Architecture Office to shed light on the ongoing construction project at the city hall ground which was declared as one of the national heritage sites of the Philippines.
It is recalled that the construction of stage fronting the city hall and the fencing of its premises was a long time project of the previous administration which is now being continued and implemented by the present administration because of the new procurement process in government under the Republic Act 9184 also known as the Government Procurement Act.
CBAO will be clarifying certain issues on the city hall improvement project in order to iron out any doubts of the citizenry./Jho Arranz
