Bayron berates water district employees for flocking to city hall

Water district employees march from their office to City Hall to bring their message to the city government.

“Bakit kayo nandito? Oras ng trabaho. Dapat nasa trabaho kayo. Sayang ang oras.”

These were the first words of Puerto Princesa City Mayor Lucilo Bayron when he saw employees of the Puerto Princesa City Water District flocked City Hall yesterday to express their sentiments regarding the water supply row.

Two hundred employees marched from the water district office in Bgy. Sta. Monica to the City Hall holding tarpaulins with message of gratitude to Bayron and appeal to just let them continue their mandate.

But, it was unacceptable to the mayor as these he said “it implies that he is unreachable” that’s why the employees have to conduct a mass action.

“Hindi kailangang tumigil kayo sa trabaho ninyo at pumunta rito para lang ipaabot sa akin. Bakit hindi na ba ako maabot?” Bayron said.

Ulysses Viray, one of the members of the Board of Puerto Princesa City Water District Employees Association and acts as employees’ spokesperson appealed to Bayron to allow the water district continue its mandate but this was countered by Bayron who said that service of water district has to improve.

“Sa tingin ko hindi maayos ang service kasi hindi natin maayos ang serbisyo sa kabayanan. Kapag summer kulang. Hindi kami humarang sa trabaho nyo na magbigay ng tubig kasi ang makikinabang ay mga mamamayan ng Puerto Princesa,” the mayor said.

Bayron asked the PPCWD to set a deadline to finish the project but was firm in saying that he cannot wait a much longer time because of the pressing need of the city residents.

He, however assured that the city government will help them in securing the necessary permits.

The water supply row has been going on for almost four months after the city government manifested its intention to supply bulk water to the water district utilizing the same water source being applied for by the water district.

The water right application and other endorsements needed for the project by the water district have been pending since 2012 but only started to be processed last year.

The Sanggunian Panlungsod has endorse the project three times but the final endorsement of the mayor was only secured last month.

The water district employees have showed their full support to management by writing Bayron to hasten the endorsement which they successfully acquired.

Viray said they are now going to the different barangays in the city to gather support to allow the PPCWD to handle the water supply and distribution.
