Baguio City Mayor Benjamin Magalong has warned erring businessmen that they will not be permitted to operate if they do not comply with rules and regulations.
The Baguio politiko issued the warning following meetings with business owners whose business were previously padlocked by the city government.
Magalong said businesses should comply with the terms of their licenses.
He said bars have been letting in minors in their premises.
“Girls are molested. Minors are allowed inside and served liquor. Some operate without a permit; others operate as bars but their permit states coffee shop or restaurant,” Magalong said.
“‘Yung iba namimilosopo pa at sasabihing ang beer ay hindi daw alcoholic drink, beverage daw,” he added.
