Tagbilaran City Vice Mayor Jose Antonio “Toto” Veloso has reiterated his stance during their special session on Friday that everyone should refrain from using fireworks, which is a common practice during New Year’s Eve.
This after several social media posts that with so many people storing up fuel in their households and with many light materials strewn over the city, it would easily catch flame and be a fire hazard.
He urged the Office of the City Mayor, City Police Station and Bureau of Fire Protection to be more vigilant in implementing the provisions of Sec. 160 of the Administrative Ordinance of City which regulates the Manufacture, Sale, Possession , Use and Explosion of Firecrackers and other Pyrotechnic Material.
He emphasized that any person who violates any provision of this section shall be fined or imprisoned or both at the discretion of the Court.
