LOCAL business groups have asked the Bacolod City Water District (Baciwa) for an update on the status of its bulk water project amid pressing concerns on water shortage in the city.
In a letter dated June 9, a copy of which was obtained by Sun.Star Bacolod, Frank Carbon, regional governor of the Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCI) in Western Visayas and Negros Occidental, requested the Baciwa management through its general manager Mario Macatangay for a meeting with various local business groups.
Carbon said the business community wants to discuss with the water district matters pertaining to the supply contract, including the status of the Joint Venture Company, bank loan facility, supplier credit line agreement, performance bond, and status of water rights.
