Masbate BM seeks ban on spitting, urinating, littering in public places

MASBATE CITY— In a bid to keep the province of Masbate clean, Board Member Kaye Revil sponsored an ordinance prohibiting spitting, urinating, defecation, littering and indiscriminate disposal of waste, trash and any form of garbage in public places.

Last Monday, a public hearing on the ordinance was held at the Sangguniang Panlalawigan Session Hall.

Revil proposed a penalty of P500 or imprisonment of three days or both at the discretion of the court for those who are found guilty of violating the ordinance.

The board member opened the discussion on the proposed ordinance on her Facebook account, asking for comments, especially from those who are unable to be physically present at the hearing.

The ordinance drew mixed reactions from the netizens.

Some lauded the initiative, saying that it is high time for Masbate to be concerned about health and sanitation.

Others, however, pointed out that the infrastructure that would ensure that the constituents will be able to comply with the law is still not in place.

The board member clarified that a corresponding ordinance on the construction of public toilets and the counterpart building of toilets is presently with the Committee on Health.

“The Government can just provide so much but not everything, she stated. “The people must be treated as partners in development & not just recipients of it.”

Revil clarified that a series of consultations on the ordinance will be carried out to solicit the participation and input of more constituents.—BICOLSTANDARD.PH
