Ozamiz orders suspension of all activities that lead to destruction of environment

by Rutchie Cabahug-Aguhob

OZAMIZ CITY, Misamis Occidental, Jan. 12 (PIA) -– Mayor Nova Princes E. Parojinog-Echavez ordered all the village chiefs of the city’s 51 barangays to suspend all activities in their respective areas leading to the destruction of the environment.

In her Executive Order No. 001, dated Jan. 10, 2012, the Mayor included the monitoring of unauthorized cutting of trees within the territorial jurisdiction of the city as preemptive measure for the public safety and welfare of all Ozamiznons.

“Recent events and incidents show massive destruction of life and property resulting from indiscriminate abuse of our natural rain forest,”

she said.

These events include the indiscriminate excavation and mining resulting in

the destruction of our mountain landscape, as well, as quarrying in lands

within and along river banks resulting to floods and inundation of lands.

“There is a need to regulate these activities to preempt and prevent the effect of massive destruction affecting the lives and property of our people,” the Mayor said.

These activities, if not regulated, will perpetuate the great substantive evil destruction of the ecosystem of our environment and the rest of Mother Earth.

Meanwhile, the Mayor also directed the following officials to coordinate with the barangay leaders in monitoring these activities and submit a

report to enforce a moratorium and/or suspension of quarry operations within and along the river banks of Ozamiz:

The city director of the Philippine National Police (PNP); city engineer, City Planning and Development Officer; city director of the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG); Provincial Environment and Natural

Resources Officer (PENRO); and Community Environment and Natural Resources

Officer (CENRO). (PIA-10 Mis. Occ.)
