Marami po ang nangyayari sa ating bayan ngayon na makaka-apekto sa kinabukasan ng Puerto Galera. Marami din ang hindi nakakaalam kung ano-ano ang mga bagay na ito. Sa papalapit na halalan dapat nating gisingin ang kamalayan ng ating mga kababayan upang kahit papaano ay makapag-desisyon sila ng tama. Dapat ngayon pa lang ay magkaroon ng responsableng talakayan tungkol sa mga isyu ng bayan tulad ng sumusunod -

1. Ang pirmadong SWTP contract - na kung saan kailangan na itaas ang EUF sa 120 per tourist. Hinihintay ang implementasyon nito ng Consortium. Halaga ng SWTP = 100 million pesos.

2. Ang pirmadong kontrata para sa Sabang Pier - na kung saan kailangang itaas ang terminal fee sa 30 kada pasahero. Halaga ng Sabang Pier = 35 million pesos.

3. Ang pirmadong kontrata sa rehabilitasyon ng patubig.

4. Ang naka-ambang pag-utang para sa sanitary landfill na maaaring umabot ng higit sa 70 million pesos.

5. Ang aprubadong pagtataas ng buwis na isasakatuparan ngayong Enero 2012.

Sa kasalukuyan meron utang ang munisipyo sa Land Bank na 15 million pesos.

9 million ay ginamit daw sa pagbili ng 6 na heavy equipment at yung 6 million ay sa paggawa ng 2nd floor ng municipal building.

Malinaw sa koleksyon ng EUF na bumabagsak ang turismo natin. Kailangan magtulong-tulong ang pribadong sektor para muling ibangon ang ekonomiya ng Puerto Galera.

Kung hindi tayo, sino? Kung hindi ngayon, kailan? God save Puerto Galera.

As per your request engrben, following is a quick translation:

“There are many things going on in our town that will affect the future of Puerto Galera. There are also many who do not know about these things. In the coming elections, we should inform our townspeople so that they can decide for themselves. Even now there should be responsible discussion about the issues affecting the town like:

1.The signed SWTP contract- which needed to increase the EUF to P 120 per tourist, whose implementation is awaited by the consortium. Cost of SWTP P 100Million

2. The signed contract for the Sabang Pier which needs to increase terminal fees to P 30. Cost of sabang Pier 35 Million

3.The signed contract for water rehab

4. The pending loan for sanitary land fill worth P 70Million

5. The approved increase in taxes and fees implemented in January 2012

There is now an outstanding loan to the LandBank of 15 Million

9 Million allegedly used for the purchase of 6 heavy equipment and 6M for the construction of the 2nd floor of the municipal building

It is clear that EUF collections that tourism arrivals has declined. The private sector must organize to rejuvenate the economy of Puerto Galera

If not us, who? If not now, when? God save Puerto Galera.”



The good news is that the youth of Puerto Galera are concerned about their future and can refer to this forum re all the issues that they raised.

For the information of members of batangpuerto at facebook:

The signed contracts, current and pending loans total P 390,000,000.00. Add interest, surcharges, other charges in the contracts and the total payables over 25 years is probably at least ONE BILLION PESOS.

Make no mistake that the next three generations of residents and stakeholders of Puerto Galera will pay for all the above.

Factor in the forecasted worldwide recession for the next few years due to the bank crisis in America and Europe and I see no way that the economy of PG can be salvaged in the next year or so.

I advise that the private sector cut costs, downsize your business ( or even close down) and refuse to pay taxes / fees that are questionable ( like unreceipted drug tests that tricycle drivers have to pay).

The Private Sector has to survive , individually , the next few years before it gets better.

And since God only helps those who help themselves, vote wisely in the next election. You deserve the officials you elect.
