Treñas reactivates task force to untangle spaghetti wires


Mayor Jerry Treñas re-formed a task force that will address the ‘spaghetti wire’ problems in Iloilo City.

Task Force Alambre was reconstituted via Executive Order No. 145-2020 signed by Treñas last September 11.

Under the EO, the city “has long been confronted with dangling/sagging and inactive cables, electric wires and the like of electric, telephone and cable companies.”

There is a need for the re-bundling, fixing, and tensioning in order to straighten and arrange the wirings so as not to obstruct and pose danger to pedestrians and motor vehicles, the order also stated.

With Treñas as chairman, the task force is also composed of Executive Assistant for Power Randy Pastolero as vice-chair, and Engineer Marcelino Umahag of the City Engineer’s Office, and representatives from PLDT Inc., Sky Cable Corp, Globe Telecom Inc, Cable Star Inc, Bayan Telecommunications, MORE Electric and Power Corp., Telicphil, and Department of Public Works and Highways as members.
