P2 M for City Hall elevator proposed
by PIO release

An elevator for people with special needs is being proposed at City Hall.

The city council approved on first reading a proposed ordinance allocating P2 million for the installation of an elevator at the City Hall for persons with disabilities (PWDs), elders, and pregnant women.

The proposed ordinance authored by Vice Mayor Edison R. Bilog stated that the Local Finance Committee shall issue the required certification of availability of funds while the City Buildings and Architecture Office shall prepare the programs of work, cost estimates, specifications, and technical drawings for the said purpose.

If approved, the ordinance will take effect pursuant to the provisions of Republic Act 7160 or the Local Government Code of the Philippines.

Bilog cited Section 25 of RA 7277 or the law that provides for the rehabilitation, self-development and self-reliance of disabled persons in their integration into mainstream society, which provides that the state shall ensure the attainment of a barrier-free environment that will enable disabled persons to have access in public and private buildings and establishments and other places mentioned in Batas Pambansa 344, or the Accessibility Law.

In 2003, the council approved Ordinance 17, in which P1.7M was allocated for the construction of an elevator within City Hall to cater to the needs of PWDs, elderly, and pregnant women. However, the plan did not push through because priorities changed with the change in administration.

While ramps have already been installed near the one-stop shop, Bilog said PWDs and elders have expressed difficulty when using the ramps because of its length and elevation.

He said installation of an elevator will provide concerned sectors with ease when transacting at City Hall.

The ordinance was referred to a committee for study and recommendation.
