BAGUIO CITY – Seven proposed measures have been scheduled for public consultation by the city council this August.
On Aug. 1, the city council committee on public utilities, transportation and traffic legislation will present the following proposals to public forum at 9 a.m. at the Multi-Purpose Hall:
Proposed towing ordinance by Councilors Benny Bomogao, Michael Lawana and Faustino Olowan; 
Proposed ordinance by Councilor Arthur Allad-iw requiring all local and national government offices, private and public schools, private and public hospitals, Justice Hall, banks, churches, malls, supermarkets, call centers, funeral homes, bus and van terminals, condominiums, hotels and apartels to install taxi signages; 
Proposed ordinance designating loading and unloading and taxi stands along roads and streets and proposed resolution requesting for the construction of podium car parking in the city particularly at the areas of Ganza in between Orchidarium and Children’s Park, former Pantranco and the whole stretch of the City Library both by Councilors Bomogao, Lawana and Olowan.
On Aug. 11 at 9 a.m. at the City Council Session Hall, the committee laws, human rights and justice will hold a public hearing on the proposed amendatory ordinance filed by Councilor Edgar Avila amending section 6 of Ordinance No. 1 series of 2003 or the Baguio City Number Coding Scheme and on another amendatory measure proposed by Vice Mayor Edison Bilog seeking to refine Ordinance No. 61 series of 2008 or the Clean Air Ordinance of Baguio City.
Avila sought to include self-driven motor vehicles, motor bikes of senior citizens and differently abled persons among those exempted from the number coding scheme.
Bilog’s amendment on the other hand focused on adding a provision in the Clean Air ordinance where offenses by polluting vehicles will be reset yearly and will not be accumulatively counted “considering the normal wear and tear of vehicles which is beyond the control of motorists.”
