Legislative inquiry on MOISC mgmt begins

AN initial legislative investigation on the ownership of the Don Gregorio Pelaez Sports Complex was conducted last Tuesday by the City Council Committee of the Whole presided by Councilor Jay R. Pascual, chairman of the committee on sports and youth development. This is in relation to the special report of Councilor Ian Mark Q. Nacaya few weeks ago.


According to the councilor, Cagayan de Oro and Misamis Oriental Sports Enthusiasts are complaining that the sports complex is being managed and operated as a private entity by the Misamis Oriental Integrated Sports Council (MOISC) when in fact it is owned by a tripartite government body composed of the Provincial Government of Misamis Oriental, the city government of Cagayan de Oro and the Department of Education (DepEd).


“Our records would merely pertain to the ownership but as to the management and maintenance of the facility I believe there would be another arrangement for that,” said a representative of DepEd.


She said MOISC was created thru DepEd Order No. 41 dated Oct. 8, 1975 for the purpose of the management of athletic meets from the lower level up to the level of the Palarong Pambansa.

In the absence of a representative from the provincial government, Councilor Pascual requested the DepEd, and other parties to submit their position papers on the matter.


He said another round of discussion will take place after the Christmas holidays. (JAO)
