Vice Mayor Edgardo Labella congratulated the BAC as he described the outcome as a “healthy exercise” and pointed out that there is no substitute to a public bidding process compared to the unsolicited proposal pushed by some city councilors.

“There is no substitute to a public bidding; open, fair and competitive and the city will dictate the price of the property… while in unsolicited proposal, it’s the buyer who will dictate the price.” Labella stressed.

Mr. Ronald Tumao, Vice President for Market Research and Planning of SM Prime Holdings said that they will follow the terms of reference (TOR) of the bidding.

“We will be following the TOR, there are mandatory’s to be followed like the building of an Arena… it will be a big boast to the development of the entire Cebu and not only the SRP.” Tumao assured.

He shared that they intend to have a mix-used development of the said property like some residential and commercial component. He also assures that the building of an arena component enshrined in the TOR will also be undertaken.

Mr. Tumao stressed that they will start the development in the area after six months based on the TOR.

The said property is located where the template of San Pedro Calungsod stands, just beside SM Seaside City.

The bidding for Lot 7 and Lot 17 with a consolidated area of 19.2 has. (192,385 sq.m.) costing P3.847 billion at the selling price of P20,000 per sq. meter will continue this afternoon (elite)

E-mail Print PDF

CEBU CITY, Philippines - As the chief executive of the Queen City of the Philippines, Cebu City Mayor Michael L Rama is set to deliver his second State of the City Address or SOCA for his second term on July 4, 2015 Saturday.

In yesterday's regular Monday morning Flag-raising Ceremony of the thousands of Cebu City Hall employees, Rama bared that he will deliver a bigger and different SOCA to the Cebuanos at 4 o'clock in the afternoon on Saturday at the city's historical Plaza Independencia.

The People's Mayor invited all the city hall employees as he will be giving an important announcement during his SOCA, adding that he will also attend and deliver a different message to the City Council’s third inaugural session on July 1 Wednesday.

The mayor enthuses that he chose July 4 as the day to deliver his SOCA because it is the original day of the declaration of Philippine Independence. The United States of America formally recognized the independence of the Republic of the Philippines on July 4, 1946. The day is also known as the Philippine Republic Day and Filipino-American Friendship Day.

Looking back, in 2014 Rama also delivered his SOCA and Inaugural Address in 2013 also before the August Body at the Doña Eva Macaraeg-Macapagal Session Hall, located at the Fourth Floor of Legislative building in Cebu City Hall upon the invitation of the City Council now headed by Vice Mayor Edgardo Labella.

During his first term as the city's chief executive in the year 2011 and 2012, Rama delivered his SOCA at the Plaza Sugbo fronting the Cebu City Hall’s Legislative Building as he was not invited by the City Council which was led by then Vice Mayor Joy Augustos Young.

This year, Rama invited all members of the City Council. Preparations for the big day and contingency plans are set in case of an unfavorable weather. Everyone is also enjoined to witness the historical activity. (Cebu City Public Information Office PIO/Greggy Jiggs P. Senados)

City's College of Nursing is on top!

E-mail Print PDF

CEBU CITY, Philippines - The Cebu City Medical Center - College of Nursing or CCMC-CN, which is in consortium with the Cebu Technological University or CTU is among the Best Performing Nursing Schools Cebu-wide.

Garnering an average of 100 percent in the over-all performance and out of 16 Colleges of Nursing comprising Cebu City and Cebu Province in the May 2015 Nursing Licensure Examination or NLE, the city's College of Nursing emerged triumphant.

This, after 32 out of its 32 graduates who took the May 2015 Nursing Board Exam passed and one of them is Ma. Rejena Grace Caballero Palatan who landed on the 5th place nationwide with the result released yesterday. Benedict Rey Montas Serrano of Bicol University - Lagazpi City Campus landed on the top spot.

Aside from CCMC-CN, the Cebu Normal University or CNU has also 100 percent passing rate followed by the Velez College with 95.45 passing percentage in the over-all performance.

In the May 30 - 31, 2015 NLE given by the Board of Nursing, a total of 9,707 out of 17,891 passed the exam conducted in the cities of Bacolod, Baguio, Cabanatuan, CDO, Cebu, Davao, Dagupan, Iloilo, Laoag, Legazpi, Lucena, Manila, Pagadian, Tacloban, Tuguegarao and Zamboanga.

In an interview with the BARUGG News, the City's College of Nursing assistant dean Divina Villarin, shared that their secret for being among the Cebu's Best Performing Nursing Schools are constant review with the faculty, local review and in-house review with the Power Development Review Center.

"The CCMC College of Nursing aims to provide quality education at low tuition and we we are happy because we achieved 100 percent passing rate. Of our 32 graduates, 8 of them are Cebu City Government Scholars and 15 are Toyoflex Scholars," Villarin underscored, adding that we are hoping that our graduates can be accommodated in our hospital.

Meanwhile, the City's College of Nursing started on 1971 with 47 pioneering graduates. The school was located in the third floor of the city-owned-and-managed hospital which was damaged by the October 15, 2013 7.2 magnitude earthquake.

After the tragic incident to date, they transferred in the nearby College of Technological Sciences – Cebu or CTS-C building also located along N. Bacalso Avenue this city.

For the uninformed, the city's Nursing School was in a consortium of the then Cebu State College now the CNU since it started its operation. It was in 1994 until present that it operates in consortium with the CTU after the CNU created its own College of Nursing.

Even with the lack of expensive facilities and equipment of the school, CCMC-CN still emerged and maintained its rank as among Cebu's best. Looking back, the school has also achieved the 9th place in the Best Performing Nursing Schools in the entire Philippines in 2013 and continuously produced quality products with some who made it to the top in the previous NLE, others were absorbed by the hospital and others have ventured abroad.
