Dad gives more weight to PWDs, SC’s activities
by PIO release

All government institutions should give priority to the activities of senior citizens and persons with disabilities when using of government managed halls, courts, and places of meetings.

In a proposed ordinance, Councilor Leandro B. Yangot, Jr. said that the proposal is intended to recognize the rights of senior citizens and PWDs and make it a concern of the family, community, and the government.

Under the proposed ordinance, all barangays or government institutions or offices operating or managing government facilities such as covered courts, multi-purpose halls and places of meetings in the city shall reserve the use of the said facilities for the benefit of senior citizens and PWDs and that no reservations from any other groups or individuals shall be accommodated without first obtaining clearance from the Office of the Social Welfare and Development Officer.

However, the proposed ordinance shall not apply in cases where the said government facilities would be used as temporary evacuation site, establishment of barangay market place, places of worship or venue for fiestas or government sponsored events or activities.

The City Social Welfare and Development Office and the different   barangays in the city will be directed to ensure the successful implementation of the ordinance.

Yangot added various organized senior citizens associations and PWD groups hold their activities and they usually prefer using government-owned or managed facilities in the conduct of such activities considering the privilege or discounts they can avail of.

Unfortunately, he said there are instances when they are denied opportunity to use the facilities because the area had already been reserved for other activities of other interested groups and organizations.
