RTC reviews Provincial Board resolution settling boundary disputes between towns

Jimenez properly brought to the RTC for review the decision of October 11, 1989 and Resolution No. 13-90 of the Provincial Board. Its action is in accordance with the Local Government Code of 1983, 79 of which provides that in case no settlement of boundary disputes is made the dispute should be elevated to the RTC of the province. In 1989, when the action was brought by Jimenez, this Code was the governing law. The governing law is now the Local Government Code of 1991 (R.A. No. 7160), 118-119. [G.R. No. 105746. December 2, 1996]
