SP Sets New Curfew from 11PM to 4AM; FACE SHIELD Ordinance Approved

The city council unanimously voted to shorten anew the curfew hours from 11:00 pm to 4:00 am, effectively repealing Ordinance No. 2206-2020 and amending Ordinance No. 2203-2020.

Proposed ordinance No. 775 was authored by Councilor Jose Netu Tamayo who said the approval of the measure was in response to the request of Mayor Marc Brian Lim to shorten the curfew hours during the community quarantine, citing the need to “allow longer hours and daily turnover of food establishments offering dine-in services as well as other businesses desiring to extend business hours as means of mitigating, if not reversing, the current economic downturn brought about by the public health emergency.”

The city council further approved on second and final reading proposed ordinance No. 722 entitled “REQUIRING THE MANDATORY WEARING OF PROPER FACE SHIELDS ON ALL ENCLOSED PUBLIC SPACES, PLACES OF WORK, COMMERCIAL AREAS, AND IN PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION, PROVIDING PENALTIES FOR VIOLATION THEREOF AND FOR OTHER PURPOSES,” authored by Councilor Dennis C. Canto.

Meanwhile, the following measures were taken on FIRST READING:

*Proposed Ordinance No. 776, Amending Sec. 324 of the Revised Revenue Code of the City of Dagupan, which now authorized the City Mayor to implement the adoption of online/electronic payment of business taxes as an alternative mode, on top of the traditional mode of payment in person at the City Treasurer’s office (Introduced by Councilor Michael B. Fernandez.)

*Proposed Ordinance No. 777, Extending the Deadline of Payment of Business Tax (4th Quarter) Operating in the City of Dagupan to December 20, 2020 (Introduced by Councilor Michael B. Fernandez) was taken on first reading
Both ordinances are set to be heard on public hearing on Friday, September 12, at the SP Session Hall.
