Bacolod City gov’t searching for 122 missing vehicles

• GILBERT P. BAYORAN

The search is still on for 122 motor vehicles, issued by the Bacolod City Government to employees, who have failed to present the units, despite of being ordered to do so.

Mayor Alfredo Abelardo Benitez yesterday said they will issue show cause orders to city employees who failed to bring the vehicles to the Bacolod City Government Center grounds.

Based on their inventory reports, Benitez said the city hall has 408 motor vehicles. “Where are they now?” he asked.

If they no longer operational, show us, so that we could recover it, Benitez said.

Charges will be filed against those who fail to present the city-issued vehicles, he stressed.

Karol Joseph Chiu, the mayor’s secretary, earlier said the city government has plans to repair and use those with minor damage, and those that are found to be unserviceable will be bid out.

The inventory of city owned vehicles was in relation to the new project of the Benitez administration called MABB (Mayor Albee Bantug Benitez) cab system, which is adopted from the provincial government of Negros Occidental.

MABB Cab is a mobile app, similar to most ride-hailing apps, wherein any government office that needs transportation service assistance can book a ride for fieldwork or to render public service.

Instead of assigning a specific vehicle to one department, it will be now shared by everybody, since it is not used all the time by a specific office, while some are reportedly being used for personal or family errands.*
