Pangan: A joint venture

At Close Range

BY NOVEMBER 15 this year, Prime Water will join the management and operations of Angeles City Water District.

Over lunch, GM Rey Liwanag disclosed the change of management at the water firm. Its BODs and top management, led by Engr. Liwanag, will stay to oversee the firm.

According to him. the regular employees will be absorbed, while those retirable may opt to take the retirement package.

The job order contract workers will be thoroughly evaluated, given tests and if found worthy to be retained, will be regularized.

The Angeles City Water District will expect massive innovations in its systems and operations and the increase of capital expenditures and equipment to improve exponentially its overall image and management.

Now that the takeover is real and imminent, all speculations about the takeover must perforce be put to stop including the open-ended inquiries.

Finally, a win-win situation for a productive partnership!


Mabalacat City's role in the SC-mandated Manila Bay clean-up. The city is very compliant with the mandamus order of the Supreme Court. It has even received a regional award for the efforts expended towards the clean-up of rivers, tributaries and waterways that drain into the Bay which is expected to preserve its pristine state.


Here's some good news for teaching and non-teaching personnel who have lost their jobs and, therefore, have not received salaries.

Senator Sherwin Gatchalian has urged the government to provide immediate assistance to displaced teaching and non-teaching personnel under the Bayanihan to Recover Act or Bayanihan 2.

The amount of P300 million has been allocated for these people in private and public elementary, secondary and tertiary educational institutions displaced by the Covid-19 pandemic.

The need is immediate so the government must act quickly to address the living conditions of the affected teaching and non-teaching personnel. After all, other sectors have been helped by the government so there is no reason not to help these people who have also been severely affected by the pandemic.
