A PRIORITY project of the Iloilo City Government is the establishment of Business One-Stop Shop (Boss) building beside Customs House along Muelle Loney Street.

Iloilo City Mayor Jerry P. Treñas wants City Hall to establish a facility that will make it easy and convenient for clients, further speed up transactions and advance the ease of doing business.

City Architect Regina C. Gregorio said the three-storey structure has started construction works, which will be completed probably by the end of 2023 or early 2024.

She noted the two floors will be utilized for more office spaces to accommodate the crowd in processing of their papers particularly during renewal of permits in January.

Included in the BOSS are the Investment Services Business Permits and Licensing Division, Office of the City Zoning Administrator, City Health Office-Sanitation Division, City Tourism and Development Office, Office of the Building Official, Boarding House Commission, Task Force on Internet, Gaming Center, Anti-Piracy and Pornography, City Environment and Natural Resources Office, and Bureau of Fire Protection.
