Anti–vice task force meets to talk night life concerns
by Julie G. Fianza / PIO

Mayor Mauricio Domogan last week debunked a study done by a student regarding night life in Baguio.

The mayor reacted to a report on illegal activities including prostitution in the city during the anti-vice task force meeting last Tuesday.

Domogan said the conditions are not as negative as what was written on the student’s report, and that the city government is doing everything to control illegal activities.

The task force is conducting massive inspection on establishments suspected of coddling illegal activities and is also enforcing the building and fire codes, safety, and business permits, the mayor said.

Employees are not exempt, as they are required to have complete working papers. Business establishments violating ordinances and laws will be closed, he added.

The mayor warned those who patronize night establishments, as they may fall victim to workers who may be carriers of sexually transmitted diseases, such as HIV and AIDS. The spread of illnesses is everybody’s concern eventually, he said.

Domogan added those who are involved in such activities may find help with local government offices if they want to start a new life. There is a program for such and a certain percentage of those who availed were quite successful, he said.

Baguio, a tourist city, boasts of vibrant and very active entertainment through its various  bars like KTV/sing along bars, disco pubs, and night clubs mostly frequented by foreign tourists and even locals.

But being an educational center where some of the biggest and prestigious universities in Northern Luzon are found, the city’s population comprised mostly of students, who are potential patrons of night establishments offering entertainment and venues to hang out.

With this, the city government has put in place measures to regulate night establishments to keep these places from turning into venues of illegal activities like prostitution, illegal drug trade, and drinking joints beyond the allowable hours.
