Court to Bermejo: Return Cars to City

Mitsubishi Pajero - Roxas CityROXAS City — A court here has ordered former Mayor Vicente Bermejo to return to the city government the three cars — two Mitsubishi Pajeros and Isuzu Elf Manlift truck — that he was “unlawfully detaining.”

Regional Trial Court (RTC) Branch 16 Judge Delano Villarruz has found the complaint of Mayor Angel Alan Celino against Bermejo sufficient in form and substance.

Pursuant to Rule 60 of the Rules of Court, the court ordered the “issuance of a writ of replevin for the said vehicles upon approval by the Court of plaintiff’s bond in the amount of P3,901,600 or double the total cost of the said vehicles — P1,950,800.”

Late last year, the city government has filed a replevin case against Bermejo for continuously detaining three city-owned vehicles.

Celino filed the case following a resolution dated October 4, 2011 passed by the Sangguniang Panlungsod, giving him an authority to file criminal or civil cases against Bermejo relative to the latter’s “unlawful detention” of the vehicles. Continue reading

Proposed Roxas City Circumferential Road

Proposed Roxas City Circumferential Road

The Roxas City Government, thru the Capiz Provincial Government identified Roxas City Circumferential Road as one of their priority projects.

Roxas City Circumferential Road would serve as a by-pass road for traffic of goods and passengers going to and from Culasi Port and Panay town and the adjoining north eastern towns of Capiz, without passing thru the central business area of Roxas City.

The Roxas City Circumferential Road is one of four road projects being proposed by DPWH VI under the Panay Roads Investment Development (PRIDE) to be funded under the Japan Bank of International Cooperation.

Roxas City Circumferential Road is divided into two sections:

  • Section I starts at the Culasi Port and passing at the side of Cadimahan River, crosses the said river at Station 10+857 wherein two bridges will be constructed.
  • Section II starts at the junction of the Ivisan-Roxas National Road and eventually joins the national highway going to Panay and Pontevedra towns.

Roxas City has a lot of changes now and improvements.  Since the City Mayor Alan Celino assumed his office last year, there are major changes implemented in the City.  This  is part of his platform of Government which is “4AC: 4 A Change”. Some of the notable physical changes and improvement in Roxas City are:

  • Palm Trees within the center island along the Arnaldo Boulevard Road
  • Reconstruction of the Rotunda Fountain Landmark
  • The implementation of Coding Scheme for Tricycles
  • The construction and repairs of drainage system of major streets and barangays in Roxas City
  • Roxas City Auxilliary Police (Traffic Enforcer) and Sanitary Health Workers
  • Fence barriers within the intersections along Gaisano Blvd and Pres. Manuel Roxas Mem. School to avoid traffic.
  • and many more …

But as of the beginning of year 2011, one of the major changes I’ve noticed online is the website of Roxas City Government. http://roxascity.gov.ph.  As I visited the site to be updated about Roxas City, I’d noticed that the official website of Roxas City is down.  I am thinking that their hosting or domain expired, but as I asked my friends from Roxas City Hall, according to them, there will be a major Continue reading
