Batanes PDRRMC to be more proactive in 2012, says Batanes Gov.

by Necitas G. Alconis

BASCO, Batanes, Jan. 2 (PIA) -- In a move to address problems concerning disasters, peace and order and other issues, the Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council chaired by Vicente S. Gato called a meeting attended by 13 agency members and three local chief executives of Basco, Ivana and Uyugan.

Gov. Gato stressed that there is a need to discuss the pressing problems of the province before unmanageable circumstances arise.

Gov. Gato commendable the proper implementation of curfew for minors which aims to reduce crime incidence in the province and for the safety of the minor. He said he will schedule a meeting with school principals to ensure that the said ordinance will be fully implemented in Basco as he urged other LGUs to come up with a similar ordinance in their municipalities.

Meantime, Mayor Demetrius Paul Narag has called on computer shops operators to cooperate in the implementation of curfew on minors.

Another issue discussed during the meeting is lack of facilities to chase Taiwanese poachers.

Gov. Gato disclosed that as per reports reaching his office, there are nightly sightings in the north of Itbayat island but they donít have vessels to be used in monitoring and chasing the poachers.

The Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) vessels are assigned in Mindanao because their services are very much needed there.

Gov. Gato said they will set another meeting to come up with solutions to the problem and he also told the PDRRMC members that starting this year, their meeting will be conducted quarterly, and not only when there are issues and problems that are needed to be resolved. (TCB/NGA/PIA Batanes)
