Another article from Rizal Weekly was posted in the SG Mailing list by Juan Katwiran confirming the above negotiations. Here’s what he wrote about the news:
I’ve the hard copy of this publication and I bought it last April 2008. The title speaks for itsel and indeed the local goverment of Morong is marketing the “hi-tech” dumpsite. Plus, who were the resource persons they’ve interviewed. It should have been the primary sponsor of this resolution who should have put his insights on this matter. Kon. Dennis Sta. Catalina was the sponsor of the said resolution and not Kon. Dickson San Juan. And it only showed that Kon. San Juan spoke on behalf of the municipal council. Hmmm..I don’t know. I’m just curious. I’ll scan the front page of the publication, it was disgusting to read.
