Amnesty for power, water connections deliberated
by PIO release

Another ordinance that seeks to grant amnesty to qualified applicants for electric and water connections for three months is being deliberated at the city council.

The proposed ordinance stated that the local government grants a three-month amnesty to qualified applicants who completed their application requirements for electric and water connections but are unable to submit the same within the period provided for by Ordinance 116 s. 2018.

The proposal stated that no further amnesty will be granted by the local government upon the expiration of the amnesty.

In 2018, the city council passed Ordinance 116, s. 2018 that granted amnesty to qualified applicants for electric and water connections for six months, which expired in March.

The proposed ordinance explained that many qualified applicants for water and electric connections are reportedly clamoring for another amnesty since their applications were overtaken by the six-month amnesty due to financial constraints and lengthy compliance with the other requirements.

It noted that studies and consultations were also conducted by the concerned offices of the city government that also prolonged their applications and contributed to the unnecessary delays until their applications were overtaken by events with the expiration of the six-month amnesty period.

The city government had been granting amnesty to qualified applicants for electric and water connection applicants from the different barangays of the city every three years or during elections to boost the possible reelection bid of some city officials.

Under the rules and regulations in the grant of the amnesty for qualified applicants for electric connections, the city government will waive the issuance of the Certificate of Final Electrical Inspection (CFEI) issued to them before the Benguet Electric Cooperative.

One of the reasons why applicants for electric connections were not granted such connections is the absence of their proof of ownership of the lands where their structures are erected which is the major requirements for the issuance of the CFEI.
