Baguio-Tuba border dispute to be settled amicably

BAGUIO Mayor Mauricio Domogan vowed to end the boundary dispute between the city and Tuba town through an amicable settlement arranged by a court.

Domogan said since the border issue was not included in the proposed bill on the amendment of the city charter, the only option left is to let the court decided on a compromise.

He said the amended technical description of the metes and bounds of the city established in earlier negotiations with Tuba officials will be followed.

Barangay officials of Santo Tomas Proper in Baguio had complained that some of the business establishments operating within the jurisdiction of the barangay have been issued business permits by the Tuba municipality.

They said there appeared to be confusion as to where residents especially those near the boundary will get clearances and certifications so they asked the city government’s help to settle the border problem. (Aileen Refuerzo)
