Ordinance on alarm systems approved on third reading
BAGUIO CITY — With the approval of the alarm system ordinance during the regular council session Monday, business establishments are now required to install efficient, effective and working alarm systems for emergency situations as to the status report of the Alarm Systems Inspectorate.
The ordinance is advocating the use of simple working, efficient and effective alarm with guidelines on their installation. An electrical source, a switch, the alarm and electrical circuit would be required which if needed, would activate a resounding bell or a silently blinking light. One or a combination of both should be able to effectively warn the general public of any natural or man-made emergency within a business establishment, the resolution stated. # Julie G.

Beneco offer for streetlight maintenance favored
BAGUIO CITY — Councilor Betty Lourdes Tabanda is egging colleagues to accept the offer of the Benguet Electric Cooperative (Beneco) to manage the city’s streetlights.
Tabanda proposed the acceptance of the Beneco offer provided only un-metered streetlights shall be subject of this agreement; a joint inventory of the streetlights shall be undertaken; the city shall pay for the electric consumption of 10 burning hours for each streetlight included in the inventory based on the existing bulb rating.
Beneco shall provide for the repair and maintenance of all inventoried streetlights. # Aileen P. Refuerzo/PIO-Baguio City
