THE Sang­gu­ni­ang Pan­lung­sod (SP) of Ba­colod ap­proved the re­quest of Mayor Eve­lio Leonar­dia for author­ity to sign the con­tract of agree­ment be­tween the city govern­ment and Je­jors Con­struc­tion for the con­struc­tion of Masskara Coli­seum project worth P800 mil­lion.

The re­quest was sup­ported by the 10 votes cast by Coun­cilors Caesar Distrito, Renecito Novero, Em Ang, Elmer Sy, Dindo Ramos, Bar­tolome Orola, Ana Marie Palermo, Sonya Verde­flor, Aye­sha Vil­laflor, and Lady Gles Pallen.

Coun­cilor Wil­son Gam­boa Jr. voted against it while Coun­cilors Cindy Rojas, Clau­dio Puentevell­a and Ri­cardo Tan were on leave.

The Masskara Coli­seum is one of the pri­or­ity projects of the city govern­ment that will be funded by the P1.7 bil­lion loan from the De­vel­op­ment Bank of the Philip­pines (DBP).

Other city’s pri­or­ity projects are the de­vel­op­ment of Pro­greso Vil­lage Re­lo­ca­tion Site worth P350 mil­lion; Ba­colod City Col­lege Site De­vel­op­ment and Fa­cil­i­ties, P350 mil­lion; and the con­struc­tion of roads and bridges, P200 mil­lion.

The win­ning bid­ders of said projects have al­ready re­ceived the no­tice to pro­ceed for the im­ple­men­ta­tion of the projects.

The Yan­son fam­ily ear­lier do­nated a to­tal of 8.8 hectare land to the city govern­ment to be used for the South Pub­lic Ter­mi­nal, mu­seum, and coli­seum in Barangay Ali­jis.*
