Tacloban media laud city dad's info drive on radio
Tacloban City (October 22) -- The local media cited Hon. Sambo Yaokasin for his quick action to the request for the City of Tacloban to utilize a part of its radio programs in informing the people about the important ordinances that the Sangguniang Panglungsod has passed.
During the SP weekly session on Wednesday afternoon, Honorable Sambo proposed and unanimously approved by the august body, a resolution requesting that a portion of the City's radio programs be allotted in informing the people about the City ordinances.
The request was made during last week's Harampang Ha PIA, where Honorable Sambo was invited as guest in order to clarify the public's questions about certain issues like collecting fees for motorcades, installation of streamers or tarpaulins, among others.
The local media noted that the City Government has blocked many time slots in the local radio stations. To make the about P200,000 monthly expenses worth spending for the radio programs, such should be used for the benefit of the people of Tacloban, the media added.
Honorable Yaokasin agreed with the media saying that their observation was valid. He also assured the media that in the next SP session, he will propose a resolution to that effect.
He said that the ordinance which calls for payment of specific rates for the motorcade and the hanging of tarpaulins and streamers in the City of Tacloban was passed in the year 2005 yet.
Unfortunately, not all people of aware about this yet. Thus, the move to include the discussion and explanation about important City ordinances in the radio programs of the City government, is indeed a welcomed news. (PIA 8) [top]
