The full complement of the municipal police force of this town led by its head, Police Senior Police Inspector Surki Alday Sereñas is bent on giving muscle to the town’s ordinance entitled: “2009 Code of General Ordinances of Villanueva, Misamis Oriental,” authored by veteran SB member, Kagawad Carmito ‘Mitz’ Tapungot.
“In view of our intention of putting a stop on petty crimes and other forms of criminalities characteristically perpetrated by minors in the evening and wee hours of dawn, the undersigned respectfully informs your good office that we will be implementing curfew hours on minors as stipulated in Article B, Section 357 and 358 of the 2009 Code of General Ordinances of Villanueva, Misamis Oriental effective immediately,” thus said PSI Surki Alday Sereñas in his letter dated June 23, 2010 to Barangay Poblacion 2 Punong Barangay Ferdinand Agravante.
In the same letter, PSI Sereñas added: “likewise, the prohibition of loud videoke or sing-along after 10PM shall be enforced.”
To emphasize his intent some more, Sereñas invited concerned barangay officials, CVO members and other concerned townsfolk for a consultation cum information dissemination meeting last June 23 at the municipal conference hall to spell out the intricacies of the planned curfew and their opinions on the matters discussed.
