Brgy 8 vil­lage hall to be re­lo­cated

Sun Star Bacolod - - Top Stories - /map

THE vil­lage hall of the Barangay 8 in Ba­colod City is set to be re­lo­cated to the city govern­ment owned lot along the recla­ma­tion area in the city.

City Fire Mar­shal Publio Ploteña said yes­ter­day the city govern­ment al­ready iden­ti­fied the area so the of­fi­cials of Barangay 8 can trans­fer as soon as pos­si­ble.

The lot, where the barangay hall is sit­u­ated, is owned by the Pro­vin­cial Govern­ment and the Bureau of Fire Pro­tec­tion (BFP) is plan­ning to re­ha­bil­i­tate its build­ing.

In 2018, the BFP also asked the of­fi­cials of Barangay 8 in­clud­ing the own­ers of 17 houses to va­cate their struc­tures near the BFP build­ing be­cause they will use the area.

Ploteña said they need more space so they can park their fire trucks prop­erly.

He said he al­ready in­formed the of­fi­cials of Barangay 8 that the city govern­ment will as­sist them for their new vil­lage hall.

He added that based on the deed of do­na­tion, it stated that the area is ex­clu­sively used for BFP and the plan is now at the na­tional head­quar­ters. Last year, vil­lage chief Joanna Ma­ga­lona also ad­mit­ted that they re­ceived a let­ter from the re­gional of­fice of the BFP that they will de­mol­ish the struc­tures sit­u­ated near the Bfp-ba­colod build­ing.

Barangay 8 is oc­cu­py­ing the area for almost 20 years.

Ploteña said some of the res­i­dents al­ready de­mol­ished their houses and they were as­sisted by the city govern­ment for their re­lo­ca­tion.

“We need the co­op­er­a­tion of ev­ery­body so we can start to trans­fer the vil­lage hall of Barangay 8,” he said.
