Baguio, Benguet town revisit boundary overlap

/ 05:04 AM October 09, 2020

BAGUIO CITY—The local governments of Baguio City and neighboring Tuba, Benguet province, are revisiting a 2013 boundary settlement to make up for lost realty taxes paid by residents in the disputed areas.

Noel Tomin, Tuba municipal assessor, told the city council last week that he had been authorized by Tuba Mayor Clarita Sal-ongan to facilitate the transfer of tax declarations to Baguio where the lots are situated.

But Tuba and Baguio could proceed with the land settlement through a “government-to-government” arrangement to end all land problems arising from unclear boundaries, said Baguio Vice Mayor Faustino Olowan. —VINCENT CABREZA
