Orola to Lechon Vendors: ‘Secure Necessary Permits’

Lechon vendors in Barangay 35 must secure necessary permits for their business operation, from government agencies concerned and dispose their waste/garbage properly, Bacolod City Administrator Atty. John N Orola, Jr. said.

Lechon vendors should secure permit from the city, Bureau of Fire Protection and sanitation permit from the City Health Office (CHO) to avoid complaints from their neighbors, he said.

Aside from lechon vendors, Orola also reminded operators of videoke and KTV bars, to close by 11 p.m. as it is regulated by a city ordinance.

Orola is urging the barangay officials to monitor videoke bars operating in their barangay beyond 11 p.m. after having received some complaints from residents living near these establishments especially along Lizares Avenue in Taculing and Sta. Clara Subdivision in Mandalagan.

After having been informed that some videoke bars operated until 4 a.m., Orola also asked the videoke and KTV operators to be considerate of the situation of other people especially those who are suffering from illness.

Violation of a city ordinance regulating KTV operation, can close the said establishment.

Orola likewise issued a warning against those vandalizing the walls of buildings around the city. They will ask the police to implement the ordinance against vandalism.

He said they are preparing the city for the hosting of the ASEAN Summit in March next year, and this will open lot of opportunities for Bacolod City.*
