Negros Occidental Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson affirmed that the province has a new Provincial Environment Management Office (PEMO) head.
According to Lacson, Dr. Rebecca Parcon will replace outgoing Atty. Danilo Amisola who will be retiring from the position after a year in office.
Amisola was previously a trial court judge before retiring and being appointed by Lacson as PEMO head back in 2020.
Meanwhile, Lacson had yet to appoint who will replace provincial agriculturist Atty. Japhet Masculino who will also be retiring on June 30.
Earlier this month, Masculino forwarded a letter to Lacson stating he is retiring after 39 years of government service.
Several recommendations as to who will replace Masculino have already been forwarded to Lacson for approval and is expected that a new provincial agriculturist will take office by July 1./DGB, WDJ
