We have coordinated with the Mayor, these were the words expressed in Tagalog by PO1st Condrito Alvarez of the Coastguard of Boracay Detachment related to the addition of personnel to watch over Tambisaan Port at Manoc-Manoc village.
In an interview of Alvarez by Yes FM 91.1 on Wednesday, June 19, he admitted that the lack of personnel to keep an eye on the said port at night is a problem in Boracay.
The matter had allegedly made Coastguard coordinate with Malay Mayor John Yap in order to assign someone at the Tambisaan port.
In the same interview, the scheme by some boats in Boracay was revealed.
According to information that reached the radio station, there are boats that load cargos that do not have appropriate permit.
There are also vehicles that are able to enter the cargo areas in the island like motorcycles that do not have any documents.
The Coastguard believes that it is necessary to add personnel at the port to curtail the mentioned activity.
