(JBD)Joint cmte looks into status of property for Maritime HQA joint meeting of the City Council committees on police, fire and public safety and on subdivision & landed estate chaired by Councilors Romeo V. Calizo and Dometilo C. Acenas, Jr., respectively, was held recently to discuss updates on the request of Regional Maritime Unit 10, Philippine National Police Maritime Group for a space to house its headquarters in Macabalan.


According to a representative of the National Housing Authority (NHA), claims that the 500 square meter lot is owned by the NHA must first be checked.


The Power learned that within the property shall also stand the new office site of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA). But this plan can only be undertaken if and only when the subject space allotted for the Maritime group is verified and duly owned by the city government and not by NHA.


Noting this, Councilor Calizo requested the Maritime group to coordinate with the NHA to find out the real status of the subject lot. He said another round of discussion on the matter will soon take place. (JAO)
