Calizo pushes review of Piso-Piso housing concept
“Ganahan lagi ta para malipay pud ang katawhan naa silay housing units of their own but the problem (is that) there are anomalies that transpired.”
This was pointed out by Councilor Romeo V. Calizo on Monday’s regular session in reaction to the special report of Councilor Edgar S. Cabanlas, chair of the committees on subdivision and landed estate and on urban and rural poor and housing development, on the alleged anomalies at the City Housing and Urban Development Department (CHUDD).
With due respect to the good intention of the Piso-Piso Emancipation Housing Program of the city, Calizo hinted it should be reviewed after numerous anomalies have transpired over its implementation.
He said the matter may be regarded as a wake-up call for the City Government to assess the efficiency of the concept of providing housing units to its constituents as compared to other cities of the country.
“If you go to Marikina (City), the government manages and maintains the housing units and they (are renting it) at a very low rate to their constituents. The rentals (is used to pay) for the maintenance of these housing units,” the councilor cited.
With this, a review or study maybe conducted to determine which concept should be adopted by the city to avoid and avert possible anomalies in its implementation, Calizo further suggested.
