2 Bacolod firms padlocked for permit violations


The City Legal Office (CLO) Enforcement Team together with the Bacolod City Permits and Licensing Division (PLD) padlocked two establishments for operating using a fake business permit, and the other has no mayor’s permit.

Stela Rose Rayos, division head of PLD, said yesterday that on November 13, the enforcement team of CLO and two of the inspectors of PLD padlocked an establishment located at 6th Street, Barangay 7 for using a fake business permit.

Rayos said they inspected the establishment on September 24 and they found out and verified their permit is fake.

She said that the City Treasurer’s Office will assess the penalty against the establishment.

Another establishment located at B.S. Aquino Drive in Barangay Villamonte was also padlocked for operating without mayor’s permit.

Rayos said they have issued first and second notices of violation in June and August, respectively against the establishment but have failed to process the necessary permit.

Rayos said that the two establishments have undergone due process before she issued a recommendation for closure to CLO.

She said that the two establishments violated the City Ordinance No. 565, or the Revised Local Revenue Code of Bacolod.

Rayos advised the owner of the said establishments to comply with the necessary permit so that they can operate their business again.

Rayos said these incidents served as warning to other establishments to follow what is legal.

“Ga serve ini as warning sa iban kag example nga ang City Government wala naga pabaya sang ubra kag seryoso kame sa campaign kag dapat indi nila pag pawalaan ang amon inspection,” Rayos said.* (by John Dale Salazar/ NDB; photo courtesy of Bacolod PIO)
