Complaint readied
vs. barangay head


Executive Assistant Samuel Montoyo yesterday said he is building up evidence for the filing of a complaint against the barangay captain of Barangay 4 for failure to participate in the Business One-Stop-Shop at the Bacolod City Government Center early this year.

Montoyo, a member of the Anti-Red Tape Act (ARTA) Core Team, said he is working with two witnesses who have businesses in Brgy. 4 who complained that they were inconvenienced because only their barangay did not participate in the BOSS. The barangay is a business area.

He said the barangays are required to participate in the BOSS through an executive order issued by the mayor, and instruction through the joint inspection memo of the Department of Trade and Industry, Department of Interior and Local Government, and the Department of Information and Communication Technology.

Montoyo said that once the affidavits of the two witnesses are finalize, he will file a complaint for disobedience with the Office of the President.

He said he has received reports that taxpayers are not issued receipts when they pay for their barangay clearance in Brgy. 4. If no receipt is being issued, the payment will not go to the coffers of the barangay, he said.

This will serve as a test case, Montoyo added.*CGS
