Declare bridge in
Banago an imminent danger

Bacolod City Mayor Evelio Leonardia has asked the Sangguniang Panlungsod to declare the Banago-Sibucao Bridge in Barangay Banago, Bacolod City , in “imminent danger of calamity” as it needs immediate reconstruction.

The request was made based on the Department of Interior and Local Government Memorandum Circular 2003-2, dated July 24, 2003, which allows local government units to utilize their calamity funds for undertaking disaster preparedness activities and measures, provided that the Sanggunian concerned declares imminent danger of calamity, a City Hall press release said. moremoremore
