Guv orders inspection of billboards in Negros Oriental

by Rachelle M. Nessia

Dumaguete City (12 October) -- Governor George P. Arnaiz has ordered the inspection of all billboards in the province to prevent loss of lives and damage to property in the event another 'killer typhoon' strikes.

With PAGASA estimating around seven more typhoons to hit the country, Arnaiz wants the billboards across the province checked if the owners and advertisers have the necessary permits.

Arnaiz in a recent press conference said billboards located along national highways will be inspected by the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) while local government units will check the billboards in their jurisdiction.

The governor said billboards without permits will be dismantled while those with substandard structures will be brought to the attention of the advertising company or the owner.

The City Engineer's Office in Dumaguete has already started inspecting the permits of billboards in the city as part of the regular yearly inspection of all commercial and industrial building permits, said Engr. Rainier Enario

It can be recalled that The killer typhoon Milenyo have toppled around 40 giant billboards in Luzon, killing at least one person, damaging property, causing a massive power outage and traffic jams along major highways.

Pres. Arroyo wants hazardous billboards off the streets as the government has started dismantling those found in gross violation of public safety. (PIA) [top]
