Dads extend renewal of business permits, licenses

THE 18th City Council during its 70th regular session yesterday presided over by Vice Mayor Raineir Joaquin V. Uy enacted an ordinance extending the deadline for the renewal of the business permit applications until January 31, 2018.

Earlier, the City Mayor requested the City Council to favorably act on the request of the local businessmen for the extension of the January 20 deadline set for the renewal of the business permits and licenses.

It was noted that there is a reduction of turn-out of the renewed business licenses as of January 14, 2018 compared with same period last year.

The low turn-out could have been resulted due to the recent calamity, the Typhoon “Vinta” which struck the City last December 22, 2017.

This legislation was reviewed and endorsed by the committees on ways and means and on laws and rules respectively chaired by Councilors George S. Goking and Ian Mark Q. Nacaya. (JAO)
