TAGAYTAY CITY, Jan. (PIA) - Nakahandang magbalik-operasyon ang mga tourism facilities sa Tagaytay anumang araw upang pasiglahing muli ang tinaguriang  top tourist destination in the South sa kabila ng hindi pa rin naibabalik ang kuryenye at tubig sa buong syudad.
Ayon Engr. Gregorio Monreal, Tagaytay city administrator, hindi pa 100 percent na naibabalik ang supply ng tubig at kuryente sa Tagaytay kaya’t hindi pa makabalik sa normal operations ang mga hotel at restaurants.
“Kakaunti pa rin ang may tubig sa Tagaytay. Yung mga abong naipon sa kalsada ay mano-manong tinatanggal at hindi ginagamitan ng tubig para hindi na makadagdag sa pangagailangan ng tubig,” aniya.
Dagdag ni Monreal, agad na hihingin sa water district na ibalik ang supply ng tubig kapag naging stable na ang supply ng kuryente. Ang karamihan sa water supply needs ng Tagaytay ay nanggagaling sa ngayon sa deep wells at tubig na nirarasyon ng mga water suppliers.

Hiniling din ng mga tourism operators na malinisan din ang mg…
