THE Metro Iloilo Water district (MIWD) is looking for a new general manager to take over the position vacated by Le Jayme Jalbuena after the Board of Directors sacked him for “loss of trust and confidence.”

In a unanimous decision, the board ordered Jalbuena’s dismissal effective February 28 after evaluation of his options in serving his 90-day suspension starting January 3, 2014.

Jalbuena, though, was ordered to vacate the post even before finishing his suspension due to the Civil Service Commission ruling on his non-permanent appointment.


Lawyer Hans Sayno, MIWD corporate secretary, said that administrative chief Josephine Amarylis Castro was appointed officer-in-charge of the office until such time a new general manager is qualified and appointed by the board.

Castro will submit a list of nominees as general manager to the board within this month.

The five-man members of the board aside from Encarnacion are Engr. Adrian Moncada, Dr. Sergio Gonzalez, Bernadette Castellano, and lawyer Josephine Abad Caram. (LCP)
