The city council has scheduled to tackle in its session on September 2 the status of the delayed construction of Malaybalay City’s new public market.

Vice Mayor Ignacio W. Zubiri told MindaNews they have invited concerned parties to the session on Tuesday to shed light on the P225 million construction project.

Contractor H. R. Lopez Construction Co., Inc., a Manila-based firm, wrote Mayor Florencio T. Flores Jr. two weeks ago seeking a nine-month extension, which the mayor endorsed to the city council for deliberation, as stated in this report.

Councilor Manuel Dinlayan, who chairs a special committee to study the matter, earlier

said they were supposed to deliberate on the issue on August 19 but the session was called off because there was no quorum.

UPDATE: The city council held a Question Hour to accommodate the statements from the guests including that of the Ciuty Engineer, City Legal consultant, representatives from the Bukidnon Contractors Association, the Philippine Institute of Civil Engineers and H.R. Lopez Co. Inc.

They plan to vote on the request for extension next week.
