MARIVELES, Bataan –The local government unit of Mariveles led by Mayor AJ Concepcion and Vice Mayor Lito Rubia recently gave financial assistance to 15 families whose houses were demolished in Barangay Balon Anito, this town.
The financial assistance was given to help the displaced families who lost in a court battle.
Concepcion, in his message to the families, said the LGU cannot do anything else if there’s already a court decision.
He warned them not to be duped by unscrupulous individuals promising fake titles and instead go to the right government agencies. The mayor added that he hopes the financial assistance can help them to start.
Councilor Tito Catipon said that as much as possible they do not want the demolition of houses to happen. He advised that they quickly be informed if someone surfaces claiming to be the owner of the lots they are occupying. He added if found out to be the true owner, the LGU could negotiate in their behalf to avoid court battle.
Councilors Angel Sunga, Joey Carandang, Em Reyes, Harry Golocan, and Susan Murillo joined in the giving of financial assistance to dislocated families.
