Manila shuts down 8 establishments for obstructing roads

account_balanceManila chat_bubble_outline0 Comments

Manila padlocked eight small businesses for allegedly operating without business permits and causing obstruction on public roads.

Bureau of Permits chief Levi Facundo served the closure orders to several local businesses like vulcanizing shops, electrical shops, junk shops, unauthorized parking lots along Road 10 in Tondo, Manila on Thursday.

Facundo said a warning was already issued for these establishments on August 10 to give them time to apply for the appropriate permits.

“In the past months, we already conducted inspections and we have already found out that they don’t have business permits,” Facundo said.

“We gave them ample time na maging maayos ‘yung kanilang negosyo; unfortunately, nakatanggap tayo ng iba pang complaints with multiple violations (We gave them ample time to fix their businesses, unfortunately, we received other complaints with multiple violations,” he added.

However, Facundo said the local government of Manila is neither anti-poor nor anti-business as he explained that all businesses should have the appropriate permits.

“Ang hinihiling lang po natin sa kanila ay sana ay makipagkita sila dito, pumunta sila dito sa business permits. We will help them, we will give them advice, at ilagay lang po natin sa tamang lugar, tamang ayos and we will help you get your permit in one day (We just want them to come meet us, come here to get business permits. We will help them, we will give them advice, and we will put them in proper places and we will help you get your permit in one day,” Facundo said.

Business owners may apply for permits at the newly-created Business One Stop Shop (BOSS) located at the ground floor of the Manila City Hall.

Under the new BOSS, business owners are able to get their permits and licenses in only one day via three steps: File, Pay and Claim.
