Executive assistant Samuel Montoyo yesterday said he is giving the barangays until today to participate in the Business One-Stop-Shop at the Bacolod Government Center, or he will file a complaint against them for disobedience before the Office of the President.
Montoyo said that, as of yesterday, 52 barangays have responded positively while there are still nine who have not participated.
His cut-off date is today because the BOSS will run until January 20, based on the ordinance, unless it will be extended by the Bacolod Sangguniang Panlungsod, which usually happens. This means he will no longer entertain complaints or appeals after the extension or deadline, he said.
Montoyo said he has documented the attendance of the barangays in the BOSS and he will be filing a complaint against those who failed to cooperate.
The nine barangays that failed to participate are 2, 4, 16, 18, 19, 27, 29, 31, and Montevista, which are identified with the MKK group, he said.
He said he is not aware of their reason or motive for not participating in the BOSS, as to whether they refuse to understand the directive of the President, the memorandum of the Department of the Interior and Local Government, and Executive Order 37 of Mayor Evelio Leonardia enjoining their participation in the BOSS, he added.
Montoyo said he has furnished a copy of the list of the nine barangays to Councilor Noli Villarosa, president of the Association of Barangay Captains in Bacolod, who has a direct hand over his members.
He will also furnish DILG Undersecretary Dino Yulo a copy so he can assist them in ensuring that the complaints against these barangays will prosper, he said.*CGS
