CITY OF NAGA--The local government unit of Naga is intensifying efforts to address the city’s fly infestation problem in the upper barangays after receiving numerous complaints about poultry and piggery farms that are poorly managed or operating without permits or clearances.

In an executive directive issued recently, it has directed the offices in charge of processing permits or clearances to put on hold all renewal or new applications for poultries and piggeries.

In addition, it has required all existing poultries or piggeries found within the territorial jurisdiction of the city to undergo inspection.

Meanwhile, appropriate recommendations for suspension or closure must be submitted on or before January 5, 2015.

All application documents for issuance of Mayor’s Permit for 2015 furthermore must also be forwarded immediately to the City Administrator for review.

Under said directive, the City Treasurer’s Office, the City Planning and Devt Office, the City Health Office, the Solid Waste Management Office, the City Environment and Natural Resources Office, the Arts, Culture and Tourism Office and the BOSS, and Joint Inspectorate Teams are directed to (1) conduct an immediate assessment of the situation and submit recommendations to the City Mayor within two weeks but not later than Jan. 5, 2015, and (2) draft an ordinance that will prohibit expansion of any existing piggery/poultry and construction of new ones.

Recognizing the threat to human health of the fly infestation problem, the city government
is seeking the cooperation of the pub- lic in the enforcement of said directive.—BICOLSTANDARD.
