Pesquera said several JO personnel have been working without appointments and salaries for the last two months. Zafra suggested acting on the JOs’ plight first before acting on the Charter Day bonus.Cuenco also questioned one of the sources of funds for the cash incentives, which will be the savings from personal services.He said the Cebu City Transportation Office has the highest savings, but only because it did not renew the appointment of many traffic enforcers.“They were not renewed because the City was rightsizing. That’s why the traffic situation in the city has worsened because we lack enforcers... What we see now is the City has been skimping on money, only to find out that we are doing this so we can give a bonus. This is very absurd,” he said in a mix of Cebuano and English.He said the City should instead appropriate money to buy tow trucks capable of towing 10-wheeler trucks.Cuenco, who also chairs the transportation committee, said the City had to borrow a heavy-duty tow truck from Mandaue City to tow a truck that had broken down inside the tunnel of the Cebu South Coastal Road, which caused a four-hour traffic jam last Feb. 20.“Uwaw kaayo (It was shameful),” he said.Cuenco also said the bonus should be given to employees in need like the JOs, and not to those who are already in the position.He said it is incumbent on them, as City Hall employees and officials, to perform well without any incentive. But Wenceslao said not all regular and casual employees will receive the Charter Day bonus, emphasizing that only those who received a satisfactory performance rating will get one. He said there are currently 4,784 regular and casual employees and 3,357 JO personnel working in City Hall.

THE Cebu City Environment and Natural Resources Office (Cenro) has filed a complaint against Cebu Port Authority (CPA) and A.T Tan Construction Corp. for building a wharf at the back of the National Museum of the Philippines-Cebu, formerly Malacañang sa Sugbo.In the complaint affidavit, signed by Cenro officer-in-charge, Raymarr Hijara, the city government requested the Environmental Management Bureau (EMB) of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources in Central Visayas (DENR 7) to “impose appropriate fines and sanctions against the respondents.”It also called for the issuance of a cease and desist order based on violations under the Philippine Environmental Impact Statement System or the Presidential Decree 1586, after due investigation.Hijara lodged the complaint before the DENR-EMB in Mandaue City on Wednesday, March 20, 2024. He was accompanied by Cebu City Legal Officer Carlo Vincent Gimena.Hijara said the construction of a wharf in a body of water used for fisheries will impact water quality, disrupt natural processes and harm marine life due to the introduction of pollutants.Citing Section 4 of Presidential Decree (PD) 1586 and Section 4 of PD 1151, Hijara said such projects require an Environmental Compliance Certificate (ECC) and an Environmental Impact Statement detailing the project’s effects and mitigation measures. Hijarra said there were no records of ECC and Certificate of Non-Coverage that could be found regarding the project.On Thursday, March 21, SunStar Cebu tried to get a comment from the CPA regarding the complaint, but to no avail.Earlier, the City Government, through its Office of the Building Official, sued officials of the CPA, before the Office of the Ombudsman-Visayas, for constructing over 18 structures without the required permits. Among the structures are the CPA Main Administration Building, CPA Social Hall and Canteen, CPA PSSEMD Office Building, CPA Sports Facility and CPA Records Building and Fabrication Area, all in the Cebu International Port complex.The respondents of the complaint lodged before the Office of the Ombudsman are Glenn Castillo, former general manager of the CPA, and Francisco Comendador III, the current general manager.Filed were criminal cases for 18 counts of violation of Section 3(e) of Republic Act (RA) 3019, Usurpation of Authority under Article 177 of the Revised Penal Code, and violation of Section 301 about Section 213 of Presidential Decree (PD) 1096 or the National Building Code of the Philippines, as well as administrative cases for grave misconduct, gross neglect of duty, and conduct prejudicial to the best interest of the service.The CPA reportedly refused to secure building permits as it maintained that the City Government’s powers cannot extend and apply to the CPA, saying that under their charter, they have the power to regulate, license and supervise structures or construction within its port district. / AML licensed online casinos MAJORITY of regular and casual employees of the Cebu City Government may soon receive their Charter Day bonus of P25,000. During a special session on Friday, March 8, 2024, the City Council approved the first supplemental budget (SB 1) amounting to P972 million. The amount includes the P121 million for the cash incentive, as well as the P5,000 gratuity pay of job order (JO) employees. Some councilors, though, were not happy, saying the City had other pressing matters that needed to be addressed instead of granting bonuses.Councilors Phillip Zafra, Donaldo Hontiveros, James Anthony Cuenco, Renato Osmeña Jr., and Pancrasio Esparis said they would not accept the money.Justification During the discussion on the Program on Awards and Incentives for Service Excellence’s (Praise) resolution that recommended the grant of service excellence incentive to regular and casual employees, Cuenco questioned the justifications of the executive department to give the P25,000 bonus.He said the City just gave the employees a P20,000 cash incentive two months ago.He said the justifications were only a “copy paste” of last December’s justification. “There should be a sort of real reward and performance done by the employees that will give reason for the grant of incentive. Maybe they give honor or recognition to the City... I am bothered by the fact that all these rewards they mentioned are the same as those that have been mentioned for the grant of incentive last December for Christmas bonus,” Cuenco said in mixed Cebuano and English. “Murag man ta’g giinsulto ani gud (It seems like we’re being insulted),” added Cuenco, chairman of the committee on budget and finance.Councilor Noel Wenceslao said the Praise committee added three new items to justify the Charter Day bonus.These were the Gawad Kalasag (Kalamidad at Sakuna Labanan Sariling Galing ang Kaligtasan) Seal, a special award for excellence in Disaster Risk Reduction and Management in Humanitarian Assistance, and the acknowledgement made by Cebu engineers and architects “for the City’s efficient and effective administration in creating and sustaining mindful relationship to foster and strengthen connections and collaborations of professional expertise.” Priorities Cuenco and Councilor Jocelyn Pesquera said the executive department should have first addressed the matter of unpaid JO personnel and the purchase of a heavy-duty tow truck. Pesquera said several JO personnel have been working without appointments and salaries for the last two months. Zafra suggested acting on the JOs’ plight first before acting on the Charter Day bonus.Cuenco also questioned one of the sources of funds for the cash incentives, which will be the savings from personal services.He said the Cebu City Transportation Office has the highest savings, but only because it did not renew the appointment of many traffic enforcers.“They were not renewed because the City was rightsizing. That’s why the traffic situation in the city has worsened because we lack enforcers... What we see now is the City has been skimping on money, only to find out that we are doing this so we can give a bonus. This is very absurd,” he said in a mix of Cebuano and English.He said the City should instead appropriate money to buy tow trucks capable of towing 10-wheeler trucks.Cuenco, who also chairs the transportation committee, said the City had to borrow a heavy-duty tow truck from Mandaue City to tow a truck that had broken down inside the tunnel of the Cebu South Coastal Road, which caused a four-hour traffic jam last Feb. 20.“Uwaw kaayo (It was shameful),” he said.Cuenco also said the bonus should be given to employees in need like the JOs, and not to those who are already in the position.He said it is incumbent on them, as City Hall employees and officials, to perform well without any incentive. But Wenceslao said not all regular and casual employees will receive the Charter Day bonus, emphasizing that only those who received a satisfactory performance rating will get one. He said there are currently 4,784 regular and casual employees and 3,357 JO personnel working in City Hall. The SB 1 also covers the P205 million for the preparation of the Palarong Pambansa in July, P600 million for transitional housing, and P21 million for the City Council upgrade, among others. The SB 1 will be sourced from the savings of general fund proper and special accounts. Cebu City celebrated its 87th Charter Day last Feb. 24. / JJL, AML
