Executive assistant Samuel Montoyo Sr. said he will strictly monitor the attendance and punctuality of the 61 barangays in the city’s Business One-Stop-Shop (BOSS) in Bacolod.
Montoyo, Anti-Red Tape Act Core Team member, said all the 61 barangays in Bacolod City are participating in the BOSS at the Bacolod Government Center that was extended until February 28, from the original January 3 to 20.
But he will monitor the punctuality and attendance of representatives from the barangays because they have received several complaints from taxpayers that some of the personnel are not usually present in the tables they have been provided at the BGC, he said.
He said they are supposed to report at 8 a.m. but some report at about 9:45 a.m. or 10:30 a.m. So the taxpayers are kept waiting.
Montoyo said he is trying to inculcate in the minds of the representatives of the barangays the importance of punctuality and their attendance in the BOSS.
He checks their attendance morning and afternoon so they will be aware that he is monitoring their presence, he said.
Montoyo is appealing to the barangays to report until February 28.
The Sangguniang Panlungsod passed an ordinance Wednesday extending the deadline of payment of business tax and renewal of business permits from January 20 to February 28.
MBCCI president Roberto Montelibano had earlier requested Mayor Evelio Leonardia for the extension in the filing of their mayor’s permit for 2019 and the first quarter payment of their business tax.*
