Baguio City Representative Mark Go said he is eyeing legislation that will fix “unsightly” public utility wires and cables on the streets.
The Baguio politiko said developed countries usually do not have eyesores like “unsightly wires and disorganized posts.”
“Not only are these eyesores, they are also safety hazards,” Go said.
“Our city is small enough for a vision this big. This is achievable if we strengthen Public-Private-Partnership,” he added.
Go said the bill he intends to pass will mandate the coordination of local government units and public utilities providers.
“We will attempt to craft legislation that will lay the foundation for public utilities to coordinate with each other and the local government to fix our cables and wires,” he said.
“We will solicit the help of urban planners and engineers to help us come up with a system to gradually rid our city street of these distractions and dangers,” Go added.
