After seven (7) years, the city government under Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo summoned enough political will to implement the decision that will clear the more than 3 hectare land previously owned by the Tale family in Banilad Dumaguete to serve as relocation site for the houses of the victims of Typhoon Sendong in 2011.

Some three hundred families will be relocated and granted their own homes in this property.

This morning, Mayor Remollo led several teams of enforcers, peace officers, social workers, medical and rescue personnel along with heavy equipment deployed by the city to clear and fence the lot so that civil works and development could begin.

But Mayor Remollo assured that the 8 houses owned by the tenants will not be demolished only the trees and other obstructions.

The title of the land being disputed is now transferred to the National Housing Authority and will be donated to the city government.
