THE "No Appointment, No Work" policy of Mayor Evelio R. Leonardia has resulted to the city's already unruly streets to become even more chaotic due to the lack of enforcers to manage the city's traffic.
Vice Mayor Jude Thaddeus Sayson, Bacolod Traffic Authority Office chairman, said that there are 159 traffic enforcers who were previously employed by the city.
Eighty seven were under the casual plantilla, 49 were job order employees, while there were 27 regular traffic enforcers and five regular traffic staff.
Despite the mayor's Memorandum Order specifying the "No Appointment, No Work" policy, it seems that the official themselves don't follow the said memo as most of the casual and co-terminus employees still report to duty in the various offices and departments of the City Government of Bacolod.
Vice Mayor Sayson said that he is not yet privy as to when Leonardia will issue the appointments. But he allows some casual employees to continue reporting and gave them the assurance that their appointments will take effect July 1, 2010.
Leonardia is still in Manila after he was elected executive vice president of the League of Cities of the Philippines.
The new set of LCP officers took their oath Monday at Malacañang and they will have their first board meeting Tuesday.
Leonardia might be back to Bacolod by Thursday.
