URDANETA CITY- If you happen to be in this city, do not ever attempt to throw candy wrappers, cigarette butts and other trash anywhere other than trash cans or else you will be fined or end up in jail.

This after City Mayor Amadeo G. E. “Bobom” Perez IV revived the implementation of Ordinance 75-2005 or the Anti-littering Ordinance as part of his the environmental awareness campaign program here.

The said ordinance carried a penalty of: first offense- a fine of P500 or four hours of community service; second offense- a fine of P1,000; third offense- a) P2,000 fine and revocation of Mayor’s permit for business establishments, and P2,000 or imprisonment or both for individuals.

In intensifying the campaign with taglines “ Bawal Magkalat sa Urdaneta, Kalinisan Gawing Kaugalian,” Mayor Bobom created a task force to oversee its compliance and put up trash cans/ waste bins in strategic places within the urban centers of the city.

“ We want a clean environment. With massive information campaign on anti-littering, people in the city and even visitors will be used to abide with it. It’s just a matter of implementing it coupled with right information,” he said.

The said ordinance was approved in 2005 or five years ago but it was not as massively implemented as now.

Mayor Bobom, who is noted for his work habit of working more than eight hours a day, makes rounds of visit within the public market areas and monitor for himself the implementation of other programs related to environmental concerns.

He further said that the construction of the engineered sanitary land fill in Catablan village is nearing completion and hopefully to be opened in January next year.

Meanwhile, Mayor Bobom extended his gratitude to the city government officials, reigning beauties, business sectors, academic community and to all those who made the city’s fiesta celebration a success.

The city fiesta started on December 1, 2010 until December 11, 2010

“ We have celebrated our fiesta without any untoward incident. I commend our police officers and other peace-keeping groups like the Public Order and Safety Office, civilian volunteers organizations and our barangay officials for their assistance in ensuring a peaceful fiesta celebration,” he said.
