THE City Government of Bacolod through City Legal Office (CLO) head Rayfrando Diaz II will hold a dialogue and consultation with the different transport organizations at 1 p.m. today.
The talk seeks to iron out the concerns and issues regarding the move to make permanent the experimental traffic rerouting in the city.
Diaz asked Executive Assistant Reynaldo Ebreo, head of the Bacolod Traffic Authority Office-Traffic Management Unit, to join him during the dialogue.
“I told him it is his time to make amends with the transport sector and be magnanimous (because) the mayor sided with him. It’s your turn to make up and patch up (your differences) with the transport sector. I told him this is his chance to make amends and show the transport sector that he is concerned for their welfare," the CLO chief said.
Diaz sent a memorandum to lawyer Hermilo Paoyon, and Rey Demisana of the CLO asking them call on the jeepney operators associations for a dialogue.
The holding of a dialogue is necessary for the submission of reports to the City Council with respect to the adoption of the experimental traffic rerouting scheme on a permanent basis, he said.
“We will hear the concerns or complaints of each and every association regarding the proposed traffic routes that we are now implementing,” Diaz said.
He added that if the new traffic scheme will be adopted it will be an amendment to the existing ordinance.
