Capital town of Ifugao now has an anti-obstruction ordinance
by Marcelo B. Lihgawon / PIA

LAGAWE, Ifugao – Officials here approved an ordinance prohibiting and penalizing any person causing obstruction on streets, sidewalks, avenues, alleys, bridges, parks, and other similar public places.

The “Anti-Street Obstruction Ordinance” aims to make public roads and sidewalks safe and convenient for pedestrians to improve flow of traffic and to minimize illegal vendors.

Sangguniang bayan members noted that the construction of illegal infrastructure along public roads, the placement of signages along easement in front of business establishments, and illegal vendors blocking pathways and affecting the flow of traffic remain.

“To solve the pressing problem, the immediate formulation of an ordinance is necessary for the sake of the people of Lagawe and for the future,” they stated.

The ordinance prohibits the use of public roads and sidewalks as shop, working area, warehouse, office, or for any purpose related to the conduct of business; as garage or parking area for any type of motor vehicle; vending or selling of foods and reading materials, and seeking of alms or solicitations.

Tiangge or flea markets shall be exempted provided that necessary permits have been obtained during fiestas, athletic meets, weddings, and other special occasions.

Public roads and sidewalks should not also be used also for family gatherings/celebrations and drinking; as storage of goods, construction, and junk materials; as basketball court or playing area; drying of palay; and construction of humps.

Conduct of religious and community activities and holding of wake should be coordinated with the barangay council concerned and the traffic and parking management department of the municipal government.

Items, goods, and structures found along roads, streets, avenues, alleys, sidewalks, bridges, parks, and other public places will be confiscated by the Municipal Anti-criminality and General Services even without prior notice and will be treated as common garbage. Violators will be penalized accordingly.

Local officials were tasked to sustain the presidential directive to clear roads and sidewalks from all obstructions.
