Last City Council session today

Dawn masses ushered in today the official start of the Christmas season. The City Council took part in this annual ritual taking care of the food stalls infront of the San Pedro Cathedral and the City Council building.

The offering of the free stalls for food vendors would run nine days.

The regular City Council session today is scheduled at 1 p.m. because a  number of our colleagues, our SP Secretary Leika Lopez and her staff burned the midnight candle to help organize the traditional “simbang gabi” food fair.

The calendar of business today includes items not taken up in yesterday’s session and a few additions including the request of the Bankerohan Meat Vendors Coop for the extension of their slaugherhouse permit, which expires at the end of this year.

Passed unnoticed by the local media yesterday was the City Council’s favorable endorsement for Legaspi Oil’s plan for a Special Economic Zone at Barangay Sasa.

One of the remaining important items left at the City Council agenda is the hydro power plant project of clean energy company Hedcor at Tamugan.

Thanks for more Christmas gifts from Councilor Mabel Acosta, Councilor Conde Baluran and University of the Philippines (UP-Mindanao)

    Congratulations to the City Council and the City Mayor’s Office for another fruitful year. I hope our congressman (1D) can do the same. Anyway, I’d just like to raise this issue I read from a blog listed in davaoblogs.com. Its about these little children lining up along the diversion road to beg for money. I know its a season for giving but begging at the roadside with all the speeding cars poses danger to these children. I think we can all have a Merry Christmas if we can at least ensure the safety of these children. I am sorry this is all that i can do because I am currently away from Davao. Thank you and Merry Christmas.
