Bontoc Mayor Franklin Odsey urged residents and stakeholders to cooperate in the municipal government’s clearing of illegal structures and obstructions.
The Mountain Province politiko said the clearing operations is in compliance with the memorandum order of the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) to all local executives to clear public roads of illegal structures.
President Rodrigo Duterte, in his recent State of the Nation Address (SONA), ordered local executives to “reclaim” public roads.
Odsey led the municipal government during clearing operations last September 3.
Among the common obstructions removed were illegally parked vehicles and piles of sand and gravel.
