Zamboanga city and Zamboanga del Norte officials will come face to face in a symbolic meeting at Limpapa to settle an ongoing boundary dispute between the two local government units.

Mayor Maria Isabelle Climaco Salazar will lead City Councilors to meet their Zamboanga del Norte counterparts led by Sibuco Mayor Norbideiri Edding at the Limpapa bridge, the designated boundary between the two local government units.

The meeting will take place on April 18.

Cesar Jimenez Sr. First District Councilor, said that the meeting to be conducted at the bridge symbolizes a “bridging” of two parties to settle a dispute that long separated the two.

The local officials will meet at the Sangguniang Panlungsod and proceed together to Barangay Limpapa.

The group will have lunch in the area then go back to the Sangguniang Panlungsod to start the talks.

“This is a symbolic gesture that in good faith we will talk to them,” said Jimenez.  (RGAAGo)
