The Tagbilaran City Council on its regular session on Friday passed an ordinance that would push the establishment of the proposed P50-million Tagbilaran City College (TCC).
Glen Andring, a consultant from the office of Mayor Baba Yap, bared to the Tagbilaran City legislators that the feasibility study for the project was already completed.
The Commission on Higher Education of the Philippines has also approved of the school’s establishment, Andring said.
However, the “academic” aspect of the study has yet to be completed prompting councilors from the minority bloc namely Councilors Dodong Gonzaga, Greggy Gatal and Jonas Cacho to vote against the ordinance’s passage.
Still, they were outvoted by the rest of the councils’ members leading to the passing of the ordinance which was authored by Councilor Joseph Bompat, chair of the legislative body’s committee on education.
The TCC is set to be constructed in Barangay Dampas in Tagbilaran City.
It is included in the Tagbilaran City government’s P2.3-billion annual investment plan for this year and is listed as among priority projects. (WM)
