Stinky dumpsite leads to 60 percent drop in sales

RESIDENTS, students and workers near the reopened Inayawan landfill are complaining of the foul smell of the dumpsite. With Cebu City councilors still debating on the dump site operations, members of the business community have sought the help of Presidential Assistant for the Visayas Michael Dino, who will raise the matter with the Department of Environment. Businessmen reported a 60 percent slide in sales when the dumpsite reopened.

I know it’s really bad. But you know, the anapog (limestone) will help. But the council is sitting on that because the council wants us to spend P20 million a month to help the Consolacion dumpsite. I will not help them. We’re not going to clsoe it. We’re going to try to mitigate the smell. They will spray it. Cebu City mayor Tomas Osmena.

I will probably deliver a privilege speech or I will file a reso immediate closure of the landfill but I’ll give them 15 days to look for another alternative kung aha ilabay. Cebu City Councilor Joel Garganera.

Davide fights back at Garcia, points out ex-gov’s lapses

Gov. Hilario Davide said former governor Gwen Garcia’s threat of a house probe in the Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center could trigger a backlash. Garcia, who is now a representative, said in a speech in congress of the “troubling and frustrating developments” at the jail and requested for a congressional inquiry.

Itug-an nako didto sa congreso nga ilang gihimong gatasan ang CPDRC sa dihang si Gwen ug Byron pa ang gaduma sa prisohan. Itug-an nako didto nga ang problema sa drogas nakaugat na kana sa panahon pa sa mga Garcia. Gov. Hilario Davide III.
