If the Municipal Ordinance is to be based upon, the expenses of demolition of illegal structures in Boracay can be passed on to the owners to shoulder.
This is what DILG Provincial Director, John Ace Azarcon had revealed during an interview last Wednesday.
This is in relation to the plan of the Local Government of Malay to let the owner of West Cove shoulder other expenses of the demolition if the LGU experiences insufficiency in funds.
According to Azarcon, Boracay has an ordinance which states that the proprietors are to remove or demolish their own illegal structure on the island.
He believes that this will be the basis of Malay if ever there’s a need for it to be carried out.
However he admitted that although this is valid to be implemented, it will not be easy for the local government.
Nonetheless this must undergo appropriate process.
