The City Government will engage in continued dialogue with the Zamboanga City Electric Cooperative, Inc. (Zamcelco) to thresh out the payment and settlement of its bills to the cooperative.

“With the new management, we are open to continued dialogue with them but definitely we will really encourage our bills be paid and be [kept] up to date with other consumers of the City,” Mayor Beng Climaco said Monday.

Climaco said she understands the cooperative’s move to serve final notices and disconnect accounts of government agencies with unpaid bills, debts, and arrears but in the case of the local government, she wants to first ascertain and clarify the unpaid bills being referred to by the cooperative.

This is because local government offices are up to date with their payments to Zamcelco, she said.

“Debe kame paga but subject to trying to see cosa ba gayot se plaso cay as far as the departments in the City Government is concerned, updated el di ila pago,” Climaco explained in her press briefing.

The arrears, on the other hand, are a different matter, she added.

Zamcelco has a newly-appointed officer-in-charge in the person of Engr. Edgardo Ancheta effective last week. — Jasmine Mohammadsali
