Mayor Panaligan holds dialogue with business sector


Calapan City Mayor Arnan Panaligan has held a dialogue with the business community in his city.

The meeting was organized by the Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry-Oriental Mindoro Chapter.

“The principal issue that was discussed at the meeting was the traffic and parking regulations at the central business district of the city,” the Mayor’s office said.

Panaligan assured the business owners that the Sangguniang Panlungsod will review the existing city traffic ordinance to accomodate the concerns of the business community for a more reasonable time to allow parking along JP Rizal St. for people transacting business.

“The City Government will also study the possibility of designating certain city streets as parking areas for motorists with transactions at the business district,” said the city government.

Also present during the meeting were City Vice Mayor Gil Ramirez, City Public Safety Officer Nelson Aboboto and Police Highway Patrol Group Chief Captain Edgardo Lim.
