Dahan-dahan sa tagay! Majayjay Mayor Jojo Clado backs ordinance to limit street drinking
Majayjay Mayor Jojo Clado has thrown his support behind a proposed ordinance that would limit drinking on the streets and would ban the sale of alcohol after 10 pm.
But Clado was quick to add that he was not trying to be a killjoy, and pointed out that under the proposal, drinking would still be allowed during big occasions such as as birthdays, weddings, wakers, and the like if these have the proper permits.
In a Facebook post, the mayor said the aim of the proposal was to prevent fights from breaking out in the streets due to public drinking.
He also said the stores would be fined if they are caught selling alcohol past 10 pm. So those who want to drink have to buy all their alcohol early, he added.
This way, they would not have to go out at night, which is when fights usually start, he noted.
Clado thanked Councilor Anastacio Hernandez for filing the measure, as well as the other officials who support the ordinance.
Once passed, he would distribute copies, he said.
Sa loob na tumagay!
“PUBLIC HEARING PARA SA ORDINANSA NA PINAGBABAWAL ANG PAG-IINOM SA KALSADA AT PAGTATAKDA NG HANGGANG ALAS 10PM NG GABI ANG PAGBEBENTA NG ALAK. AKDA NI KGG. ANASTACIO HERNANDEZ
Opps bago magalit, basa po muna. Hindi naman po totally bawal lalo na kapag may okasyunang malalaki ex. Bday, kasalan, patay etc, at pati na din ang maiingay na videoke pwera lamang kung may pahintulot kayo ni kapitan o ng munisipyo. Iniiwasan lang po ng ordinansang ito ang basag ulo sa kalsada lalo na kapag lasing na at ang hanap ay away lalo na ng mga kabataan.
Kaya dahil dyan, may probisyon din ang ordinansang ito ang pagbabawal ng pagbebenta ng alak lagpas ng 10 ng gabi. Ang may ari po ng tindahan ang mumultahan at maaring matanggalan ng permit. Kaya pag mahabaan ang inuman, bumili na po agad ng alak ng maaga. Para maka-iwas ng lumabas sa gabi na kadalasan sa ganitong oras nagpapangabot ng wrestling sa kalsada.
Hindi po kami naghihigpit para manggipit. Para po lamang ito sa kabutihan ninyo. Kaya salamat po kay Kon. Anastacio Hernandez sampu ng bawat miyembro ng Sangguniang Bayan sa pangunguna ni Vice Lauro Mentilla sa naiisip nyong panukalang ito. Once na ma-approved ito, agad bibigyan ng kopya ang bawat concerned na stakeholders,” Clado posted.
