Councilor Leandro Yangot, Jr. l has proposed an amnesty granted to applicants seeking electric and water connections in the city for six months.

The amnesty aims to facilitate access to these basic utilities for residents who may have missed previous amnesty periods due to limited time and additional requirements.

It intends to ensure that more residents can obtain the necessary connections to electricity and water, thereby improving their living conditions and access to essential services.

By facilitating access to electricity and water, the proposed measure will help improve the living conditions of residents, leading to better health, hygiene, and overall quality of life.

Those who were unable to meet the requirements or deadlines in previous amnesty periods are often from marginalized or low-income groups.

The amnesty seeks to provide them with another opportunity to secure essential services.

Similar ordinances were enacted by the city council in the past, with the latest being on April 25, 2016 and Dec. 12, 2016. – Jordan G. Habbiling
