Panay News - - FRONT PAGE - By Glenda Tay­ona

ILOILO City – The lo­cal gov­ern­ment unit of Malay, Ak­lan won’t pro­vide a re­lo­ca­tion site for fam­i­lies dis­placed by the on­go­ing de­mo­li­tion of il­le­gal struc­tures in Bo­ra­cay Is­land. Over a hun­dred il­le­gal struc­tures, mostly houses built on wet­lands, have al­ready been de­mol­ished, ac­cord­ing to Rowen Aguirre, mu­nic­i­pal ex­ec­u­tive as­sis­tant for Bo­ra­cay af­fairs.

Bo­ra­cay is re­open­ing on Oct. 26 but as of Oct. 5 only half of this long stretch of road in the is­land has been con­creted. Also, fam­i­lies dis­placed in the de­mo­li­tion of il­le­gal struc­tures have no re­lo­ca­tion site.
