Committee on family relations to review liquor ban ordinance


THE City Council committee on women and family relations chaired by Councilor Edna M. Dahino is set to discuss and revisit the City Liquor Ban Ordinance so as to impose stiffer penalties to violators thereof.


The move is in response to the special report of Councilor Reuben R. Daba, chair of the committee on social services, that the ordinance has been violated repeatedly even on such occasions as Holy Week.


According to the councilor, the liquor ban ordinance needs to be revisited and reviewed thoroughly, particularly the penal provisions. (JAO)
