Members of the Haulers’ Cooperative in Boracay will be talking to Aklan Governor Miraflores regarding their problems with quarried aggregates in the island.

According to Boracay Malay Sea and Land Haulers Multi-Purpose Cooperative Chairman Edgar Marasigan Jr., there are shortages of quarried aggregates in the island, and they were not supplied with high quality sand.

This in turn made the Boracay contractors to also complain as the sand being supplied fails to pass the standards.

Things are worse for the cooperative because Ibajay could no longer supply them with sand more so that Aklan Governor Miraflores declared a moratorium for quarrying activities in the province.

Meanwhile, they are not convinced with the promise made by Aklan Provincial Government representative Engr. Leo Pareña, with whom they once conducted a meeting regarding with the mentioned problem.

Pareña have said to give a word that the cooperative, though only having one supplier in Caticlan, will be provided with enough aggregates and sands.

In line with this, the Haulers’ cooperative is hoping that the governor will hear out their appeal.
