Solon hits city gov’t on
BY CHRYSEE SAMILLANO
Bacolod Rep. Monico Puentevella yesterday blamed the requirement of the Office of the Building Official of an environmental compliance certificate before a project could be issued a building permit by the city that, he said, is stifling the construction and completion of the Heart, Lung and Kidney Center in Bacolod City.
Why require an ECC when the project is within the compound of the Corazon Locsin Montelibano Memorial Regional Hospital which has been in existence for so many years? Puentevella asked.
Building Official Teresita Guadalupe, however, said P.D. 1096, or the National Building Code, provides that any repair, renovation, construction, demolition or excavation requires a permit.
