The forty hectare (40) reclamation project of the Provincial Government of Aklan was ordered stopped by the Supreme Court on Thursday.
The local government of Malay was glad about the decision.
In relation to this, Town Council Member Rowen Aguirre said in the Town Council session held today that it is appropriate for the Local Government Unit of Malay to acknowledge the advocacy of the Boracay Foundation Incorporated (BFI) and give a commendation to BFI for fighting for what he said was the right of the Town of Malay.
The proposal of Aguirre was agreed upon by the Town Council.
BFI together with the LGU of Malay fought allegedly against the ways of the Provincial Government in the process of setting the reclamation project which was perceived as disrespectful to the authority of the LGU of Malay.
