AFAB, 2 Mariveles villages sign MOA for dev’t programs
The Authority of the Freeport Area of Bataan (AFAB) signed a memorandum of agreement (MOA) with the villages of Malaya and Maligaya in Mariveles, Bataan province.
AFAB officials led by chair and administrator Emmanuel Pineda, Barangay Malaya punong barangay Filomeno “Joey” Borromeo and Maligaya punong barangay Danilo Musni signed the MOA on Feb. 14 at the Mt. Mariveles Conference Room in the AFAB administration building.
The signing was also attended by local government officials, led by Vice Mayor Lito Rubia.
“The intention of this separate MoA signings with AFAB and these two barangays is to have a clearer scope of responsibilities and liabilities since they are both located inside the Freeport. The AFAB as the main governing body within the Freeport, this MoA will clear those gray areas since they are also political units with authority within their respective areas,” said Pineda, as reported by SunStar.
The agreement outlines the duties and commitments of the three parties in creating programs for solid waste management, informal settlers, infrastructure, corporate social responsibility, stray animals, anti-littering and illegal parking, dispute settlement and peace and order.
According to Pineda, one of the major locators in the town will donate two brand new dump trucks to aid in garbage collection efforts of the two villages.
