On the Gaisano wet market issue: Should the Malaybalay City government issue a permit?
MALAYBALAY CITY | BUKIDNON ONLINE | BUKIDNON NEWS | COMMENTARY – So apparently one of the things that a lot of Malaybalay City residents are talking about these days is the fact that Gaisano Malaybalay – that Php 500 Million project that’s also responsible for generating hundreds of jobs in the City of Malaybalay – does not have a wet market. There’s even a statement from an anonymous social networking website user that claims:
The City Government of Malaybalay have disapproved the application of Gaisano Mall to operate a wet market. This decision is an upfront to huge investments poured by Gaisano in the City. The disapproval reflects the influence of Vice Mayor Aldeguer and Kag. (Medardo) Estaniel in the Sangguniang Panglungsod of the City of Malaybalay, which operate their own Wet Market at Brgy. 5, Malaybalay City….

p.s. UPDATE: sources told Bukidnon Online that Gaisano’s application for a permit to operate a wet market was already denied even at the committee level. Sources said that the proposal no longer reached the plenary. We still have to verify these, though.
