BORACAY — The municipal government of Malay will no longer renew the business permits of establishments violating its ordinances on business operations.
It will strictly regulate the renewal of business permits, particularly of establishments in this island resort, starting next year, Glenn Sacapaño, chief operations officer of Boracay, said in a community advisory.
Business permits of establishments that were fined, received notices of violations and/or failed to comply with corresponding sanctions will not be renewed, said Sacapaño.
He said the strict regulation will be based on Executive Order No. 14 series of 2013.
Sacapaño made the announcement via a community advisory dated December 3, 2013, issued by the Office of the Municipal Mayor, signed by him and noted by Mayor John Yap.
On the other hand, establishments found violating municipal ordinances on business operations but have complied with the corresponding sanctions will be issued a compliance certificate, said Sacapaño.
But, unless they get hold of the said certificate, they will not be allowed to renew their business permits, he stressed.
The executive order also covers establishments with no building or occupancy permits, he said.
Meanwhile, Sacapaño said the delay in the processing of the sanitary permits and the health cards for employees consequently delayed the processing of business permits this year.
He advised establishment owners to start processing the said documents and other requirements as early as this month to avoid delays. (By Ernan Baldomero)
