Lamitan City Barangay Chairmen headed by ABC President Hon. Manny Sumampil together with Local Business Owners and Operators convened Thursday (September 12, 2019) morning for a Public Consultation on the Implementation of Road Clearing organized by the Office of the City Mayor headed by Mayor Rose Furigay in collaboration with the Permits and Licensing Division headed by Ms Mary Christine Argonista and the City Engineering Office led by Engr. Ignacio Enriquez.

The consultation aims to spread awareness on the upcoming clearing operations on the national and city roads scheduled this Monday, September 16, 2019.

This venture is line with the President’s mandate enacted by the DILG through MC 2019-121.

Mayor Rose seeks the participation and cooperation of everyone to have a smooth and peaceful clearing operation. She also encourages everyone to avoid installing or building stores, households, and establishments within the designated pedestrian premises to veer away in violating the MC 2019-121. Business owners and operators are also advised to follow the guidelines set by the DILG and by the Local Government.


Lamitan City Lady Mayor Rose Furigay appeals to the business owners and operators in the City to religiously comply with the National and Local Mandates to avoid any further violations.

Majority of the business owners and operators in the City decided to put down their stalls, and remove dumps and all others prior to the scheduled clearing operations to avoid unnecessary tensions and commotions.
