The Sangguniang Bayan (SB) of Bagac has approved Resolution No. 4l authorizing the municipal mayor to undertake appropriate action to resolve the boundary dispute with the nearby industrial town of Mariveles.
According to Municipal Adminsitrator Mr. Nick Ancheta, the muncicipal government is asserting its rights to a property of about 400 hectares of land located in Sitio Aglaloma, between the coastal villages of Bian in Mariveles town and Quinawan in Bagac .
The present administration prioritizes the settlement of boundary between Bagac and Mariveles which has been contested for more than eight (8) decades and it is imperative that the town claims what rightfully belongs to the town in terms of land area.
The SB has authorized Mayor Rommel V.Del Rosario to coordinate with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) on the conduct of joint survey with Mariveles officials in the verification of political boundary, make any representations with the provincial legislative body and provide budget for the incidental expenses of the legitimate action in accordance with existing rules and procedures.
