A major road and sidewalk clearing operation was held today along JR Borja Extension where several structures of establishments were demolished after being found to be encroaching the road or sidewalk.
Accordingly, the owners were already sent prior notices by City Hall ordering them to voluntarily demolish said structures. However, after the clearing team arrived at the site, most of the illegal structures were still there prompting the demolition.
It can be recalled that the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) issued Memorandum Circular 2019-121 directing all governors, mayors, and punong barangays to to reclaim public roads within a 6-day period. This is in response to a directive from President Rodrigo Duterte.
