Masbate provincial gov't issues statement on power supply disconnection

The Masbate Provincial Government has released the following statement in connection with the disconnection of power supply due to some unpaid bills from 2011 to 2014:


"Very recently the Masbate Provincial Government received Notice of Disconnections from MASELCO banking on the piled-up elctric bills of the previous administration from years 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014. This was the obligation of the Lanete Administration. But the present administration is the one obliged to pay and burdened by the consequences.

Learning about the arrears, Gov. Vince Revil immedietely ordered for possible fast remedies especially that the Masbate Social Center has already been disconnected of electricity service. Together with the Provincial Finance Team and other heads of offices, Gov. Vince lobbied with MASELCO headed by OIC Manager Mila Francisco, appealing to MASELCO for a reconsideration presenting the consequences of the disconnection and the process of payment of the provincial government.

Gov. Vince made it clear that since the unpaid bills ammased during the previous administration, then a Sangguniang Panlalawigan Resolution is necessary as it has to be charged to the current appropriation. In the same instance, the governor ordered Budget Officer Liborio Gonzales to check on possible fund source from the current fund to compensate the arrears which the past administration failed to pay.

On October 26, 2015, this MASELCO problem was discussed during the latest SP Session. The SP members approved the resolution granting authority to the governor to pay the arrears to MASELCO and the vouchers for the unpaids bills are now on process.

Per records, all current dues and bills of the present administration under Gov. Vince Revil are updated and religiously being paid. From the time Gov. Vince took over, all electric bills of the Provincial Government were paid."
