Dads authorize contract with socialized housing beneficiaries

AN ordinance authorizing the City Mayor Oscar S. Moreno to enter into and sign the Contract to Sell with the beneficiaries of the City’s Socialized Housing Program, including the Piso-Piso Program and other existing relocation sites of the city at a reasonable price of land pursuant to the pertinent provisions of Ordinance No. 13178-2016, was approved by the 18th City Council during its 70th regular session presided by Vice Mayor Raineir Joaquin V. Uy.

The task force, chaired by Atty. Edgar Cabanlas, in its endorsement letter stated that the Emancipation Program is a new program embodied in the amended Ordinance No. 13178-2016, consolidating all housing concerns, including the Piso-Piso Program beneficiaries.

The ordinance requires beneficiaries to pay reasonable payment based on the acquisition cost plus financial carrying costs.

According to the task force, the intent of the Emancipation Program is to provide Tenurial Rights to its clients/beneficiaries over the property they currently occupy and give them opportunity to secure land titles of their lots.

The Emancipation Program is a voluntary option that the city government is offering, therefore only those who decide to be part of this endeavor will be served.

The ordinance was reviewed and endorsed by the committees on urban and rural poor and on laws and rules chaired by Councilors Zaldy Ocon and Ian Mark Nacaya, respectively. (EF)
