Bangued Mayor Dominic Valera has shut down at least 12 bars for not transferring to the town’s new entertainment center.
The Abra politiko issued a cease and desist order to the 12 erring bar owners for not following the guidelines under Municipal Ordinance 69.
Under the ordinance, all bars are required to transfer to Barangay Calaba, the site of the soon to be named Bangued Entertainment Center.
The ordinance aims to reduce noise in residential areas.
Valera said the bars will only be allowed to reopen if they will transfer to Barangay Calaba.
