In the news

Let's see...

It appears that Mayor Lani is hell bent on winning the the award for the worst LGU website. From the start of her administration,  the Taguig website  has been used mainly for announcements of the bids and awards committee. Really, we can't do better than say, Caloocan or Pateros?

On a more positive note, it looks like Taguig's budget for 2011 has been approved. Kudos to the Mayor and the councilors for setting aside political differences to get this done. I wonder how much of that has been allocated for the non-Fort Boni side of Taguig?

The Hafele head office and warehouse along Levi Mariano Avenue was officially inaugurated. Let's hope that in the coming year, more businesses set up operations outside Fort Bonifacio. Columnist Babe Romualdez of the Philippine star had recently noted the exodus of businesses from Makati to Taguig due to better tax incentives.

Finally, a sad Christmas for some residents of Ususan, Taguig who got hit by a fire a few days ago.

For those willing to help, I will try to find links to relief operations being conducted.
