Wednesday, August 22, 2012
ILOILO CITY – The newly opened river esplanade project along the Treñas Boulevard at the Iloilo River is definitely not for smokers and litterers; nor for bikers and vendors out to sell finger food.
Mayor Jed Patrick Mabilog said he just wanted the esplanade to be enjoyed by the general public and the existing ordinances on anti-smoking and anti-littering will be implemented seriously.
Peace keeping volunteers will be deployed in the area to help maintain security and cleanliness on top of personnel from the city environment and natural resources office.
Mabilog said the use of the esplanade is free and those who wanted to hold concerts and other health-wise activities may coordinate with city mayor’s office.
Mabilog said Senator Franklin M. Drilon was instrumental in the realization of the P70 million river esplanade, which was inaugurated and opened to the public last Saturday, August 18. (Lydia C. Pendon)
