Meeting on DILG Memorandum Circular No. 2019-121

Mayor Sun J. Shimura yesterday, September 3, 2019 conducted a follow-up meeting with commercial and residential owners whose property is located along Osmeña and Malinao streets. Mayor Shimura reminded them about DILG Memorandum Circular No. 2019-121 directing city and municipal mayors to reclaim public roads which are being used for private ends. The circular gives teeth to President Duterte’s directive during his 4th State of the Nation Address (SONA) to clear roads of illegal structures and constructions.

Mayor Shimura elucidated the long-term benefit of road clearing operations as it will help improve road safety, create vibrant surrounding, and ease traffic movement, especially that RoRo Port is expected to officially open in December where it becomes a gateway for travellers and cargos to and from Manila and other regions fronting Daanbantayan.

Joining the meeting were DILG-MLGOO Grace Caburnay, Daanbantayan Police Station, and Municipal Planning and Development Coordinator Dale Mito Diano.
