Building permit computation of section heads correct-A A +A
Tuesday, September 24, 2013
THE computation of fees for building permit repairs or renovation of the SM City Bacolod is P23 per square meter and not P5 per square meter for the first 5,000 square meters, said a city official.
Bacolod City Councilor Caesar Distrito, chairman of the City Council committee on Laws, Ordinances and Good Government, said the first computation made by the section heads of the Office of the Building Official (OBO) was correct.
The fees for the building permit of SM was more than P895,000 and not P100,000 as based on the computation of OBO officer-in-charge Isidro Sun.
Six section heads under the OBO had earlier written to Sun, seeking clarifications on the basis of computation for additional, alteration, renovation and or improvements of properties for permits payable to the City Government.
The section heads also said they were not informed about the changes made by Sun on the computations.
