Watchmen Daily Journal - - TOP STORIES - By Do­minique Gabriel G. Bañaga

Fol­low­ing a re­quest by Ba­colod City Mayor Eve­lio Leonar­dia for the Sang­gu­ni­ang Pan­lung­sod (SP) to pass a mea­sure ex­tend­ing the dead­line for the on­go­ing Busi­ness On­eStop Shop (BOSS) at the Ba­colod City Gov­ern­ment Cen­ter, which is de­signed to pro­vide faster and con­ve­nient busi­ness per­mit reg­is­tra­tion, the lo­cal leg­isla­tive body re­cently passed an or­di­nance ex­tend­ing the pro­gram to Fe­bru­ary 28. BOSS was ini­tially sched­uled to end on Jan­uary 20.

In ad­di­tion, a sim­i­lar ex­ten­sion was passed last year. The call for an ex­ten­sion this year stemmed from a let­ter penned by Metro Ba­colod Cham­ber of Com­merce and In­dus­try Pres­i­dent Roberto Mon­telibano, who said an ex­ten­sion would ben­e­fit busi­ness­men.

Mean­while, Ex­ec­u­tive As­sis­tant Sa­muel Mon­toyo, Sr. said all 61 Ba­colod City barangays have now joined in the event. Barangay par­tic­i­pa­tion is manda­tory un­der RA 11032, or the Anti-Red Tape Act of 2007./
