The Joint Meeting of the City Peace and Order Council (CPOC), City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (CDRRMC) and the City Anti-Drug Abuse Council (CADAC) was convened last week in JJs Seafood Village to tackle various issues challenging the peace and order in the city and other pressing matters.
Led by its over-all chair, City Mayor John Geesnell “BABA” Yap, the joint councils passed two important resolutionsduring the meeting. The first resolution was moved by City Councilor Eliezer Borja to purchase breath analyzer in the City based on the report of CDRRMC Action Officer Gerard Lavadia which stated that motor vehicular accidents are often caused by intoxicated drivers. The second resolution was moved by Mayette Gasatan from the Bohol Chamber of Commerce Inc. to request the water utility providers in Tagbilaran City to purchase generators sets for their pumping units. Both resolutions were approved en masse.
The City General Services Office led by Chris John Rener Torralba has already procured six generator sets for the pumping units of the City. One is already installed in the pumping unit in Brgy. Bool. Two are scheduled to be installed in Brgy. Tiptip and the remaining four generator sets will be installed in Brgy. San isidro and the Central Market. Mayor Yap ensured the procurement of these generator sets to address the clamourfor a stable water supply in the City despite the power outage.
