URDANETA CITY- The Sangguniang Panlungsod unanimously approved an ordinance during its session last October 26 which imposes fines and penalties to project contractors who will not clear up their mess and debris after completing their projects.
City Ordinance No. 005-2010 entitled “ An ordinance requiring all contractors to clear up their mess after construction of their projects in the City of Urdaneta and imposing penalties thereof” imposing P5,000 for first offense; and P5,000 with cancellation of business permit and blacklisting as contractor for the second offense.
In sponsoring the ordinance, City Councilor Rio Virgilio Esteves said it was high time penalties are imposed on the contractors doing business in the city.
“ I have observed that many contractors have been abandoning their completed projects without clearing up their mess and debris which are detrimental to the safety of our constituents,” Esteves said.
City Councilor Peter Jason I. Agsalud, the co-sponsor of the ordinance, said that a public hearing was conducted among the project contractors in the city.
“During the public hearing, the contractors all agreed that a penalty of P5,000 is acceptable. In fact many of them opined that it should be more than P5,000,” Agsalud said.
Earlier, before the ordinance was passed on its second reading, City Councilor Jennilyn Sison questioned the absence of provision of first offense and second offense in the said ordinance. Her opinion was collaborated by City Councilor Adolfo Basco, the majority floor leader.
After two minutes recess, Esteves and Agsalud came up with the revisions as recommended and the ordinance was passed without any objection from the august body.
