Friday, July 22, 2011
ILOILO City Mayor Jed Patrick Mabilog completed this week the appointment of a five-member Traffic Review Committee to act as a grievance body of the local transport sector.
It will be composed of lawyer Jose Junio Jacela, chief of the City Legal Office; Councilor RLeone Gerochi, chairman of the committee on transportation; Mitch Antiqueña, chief of the Transport Management and Traffic Regulation Office (TMTRO); Nick Dalisay, president of the Iloilo City Alliance of Drivers Associations (Icada); and Rizalito Alido, secretary general of the Iloilo City Alliance of Jeepney Operators and Drivers Association (Icajoda).
All five review members will automatically become members of the Traffic Advisory Council, which Mabilog created last month to oversee the traffic regulations and management in the city.
The review committee will act as liaison body and shock absorber of complaints from the drivers and motoring public and will evaluate the merits of complaints before elevating the same to the council. (Lydia C. Pendon)
