Over 6K regis­tra­tions com­pleted through ‘Busi­ness One-Stop Shop’

Barangay 10 still a no-show

Watchmen Daily Journal - - FRONT PAGE -

Bacolod City Mayor Eve­lio Leonar­dia yes­ter­day said the on­go­ing Busi­ness One-Stop Shop (BOSS) at the Bacolod City Gov­ern­ment Cen­ter has com­pleted 6,281 busi­ness regis­tra­tions.

With the event sched­uled to close on Jan­uary 20, the mayor has since re­quested the Sang­gu­ni­ang Pan­lung­sod to pass a mea­sure ex­tend­ing the dead­line to Fe­bru­ary 28.

A sim­i­lar ex­ten­sion was passed last year.

He also noted, Barangay 10 is the only barangay not yet par­tic­i­pat­ing in the event.

Ex­ec­u­tive As­sis­tant Sa­muel Mon­toyo, Sr. ear­lier ex­plained barangays must set up at the event in or­der to pro­vide ap­pli­cants with doc­u­men­ta­tion such as barangay busi­ness clear­ances. The city of­fi­cial also pre­vi­ously cited RA 11032, or the An­tiRed Tape Act of 2007, which he said re­quires par­tic­i­pa­tion by barangays in the said pro­gram.

While Leonar­dia

said he has not been pro­vided a rea­son for the barangay's non­par­tic­i­pa­tion,

the mayor said an of­fi­cial com­mu­ni­ca­tion will be sent to the com­mu­nity's of­fi­cials and the mat­ter will be for­warded to the city's le­gal of­fice, which would co­or­di­nate with the De­part­ment of the In­te­rior and Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment.
