NEWS: Purok Ordinance junked, returned to City Hall

oct 15

The Sangguniang Panlalawigan finally sent back the Purok Ordinance to its point of origin- the City Hall in their last Monday’s session after denying the latter’s motion for reconsideration.

Eleven boardmembers present voted to return the measure to the proponent council for shelving on the same ground that “it is legally infirmed” as earlier ruled by the provincial legal department.

Sangguniang Kabataan federation president Dennis Cafe, who was earlier present, was mysteriously nowhere in sight when the measure was junked by his seniors.

Boardmember Helario “Larry” Caminero moved for the sponsorship of the Provincial Resolution No. 588 junking the City Council’s Resolution No. 71 on motion for reconsideration, following recommendation by the joint committees of government organizations and non-government organizations, and of laws, resolutions, ordinances and justice.

The Purok Ordinance under Resolution No. 27-2007 became controversial when it sought to abolish elections to give the city mayor the power to appoint officers from barangay nominees. It also provided merging of adjoining puroks. (Cha Monforte/Rural Urban News)
