The Committee on Transportation, Peace and Order has recommended for concerned agencies to come up with a list of abandoned houses or structures considered as fire hazards following the most recent fire that damaged a large but abandoned apartment beside the C and L hotel in front of the City Hall on March 27 at 2:00AM.
Liga ng mga Barangay President Dionie Amores, the committee’s Chairperson, along with members Councilors Karissa Tolentino and Michael Bandal stressed the need for the formal adoption of a local 911 hotline for an integrated and efficient response to emergency situations.
It was also suggested that the Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office will detail a personnel at the CCTV Command Center for quick response.
On the other hand, the Traffic Management Office admitted to the heavier volume of traffic despite the suspension of face-to-face classes in all schools. There is also a proposal for a clamping or towing ordinance to penalize violators of the traffic schemes and illegal parking.
Both the TMO and the Special Enforcement Unit are requesting for additional personnel and service vehicles to enhance the enforcement of traffic rules, road clearing.
Present during Tuesday’s peace and order meeting are Executive Assistant for Security Concerns retired general Rey Lyndon Lawas, City Chief-of-Police Lt. Col. Ramoncelio Sawan, Fire Chief Sr. Insp. Heidi Lynn Virtudes, CDRRMO Allen Froilan O. Cabaron II and Danny Atillo of TMO.
