Lao, Calizo explain no authorship of ordinance

Correspondent . 

COUNCILORS Teodulfo Lao, Jr. and Romeo Calizo admitted they have not authored any ordinance in 2018 but doubled down by saying that this does not mean they were not instrumental in the passage of any ordinance last year.

The responses of the councilors come at the heels of the performance audit by City Council Legislative Staff Lorebeth Requiroso and her administrative assistant Ruth Neri Quiblat.

Apil gihapon kami ana kay nagboto baya kami. Dili man kana makapasar kon wala kami moboto. Dili lang kami ang author,” Calizo said.

In the recent performance audit, Councilors George Goking and Ian Mark Nacaya came out as top notcher with five authored ordinances each to their credit.

Calizo is the chairman of the committee on police, fire, and public safety. He said there are no more ordinance to be authored as far as the safety of the city is concerned.

Sama sa CCTV Ordinance, Parking Code existing na man kana. Ato lang iamend mao nang pending pa karon,” said Calizo.

He explained that it is not easy to author an ordinance since this entails a thorough study on the subject.

Labi na kon na-ay penalty clause, dapat balansi gyud. Mao nang pending pa ang atong proposed amendment kay nag-double careful ta,” Calizo said.

For his part, Lao maintained he has not authored a single ordinance last year because he is still in the process of studying a proposed ordinance he is currently authoring.

Lao said the ordinances he has in the pipeline for this year are the service incentive for barangay tanods and tax incentive for establishments that use renewable energy.

He said he has authored an ordinance the other year.

Kadto diay’ng Anti Bote-bote sa pagbaligya ug  gasoline, ako may author adto sa 2017,” Lao said.
