Barangays to assist in traffic management Barangay officials in Metro Manila are being deputized by the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) to assist in the anti-illegal parking operations. MMDA officials have engaged officials of the communities in Loyola Heights in Quezon City and Barangay Guadalupe in Makati to consider revoking permits issued to business establishments that allow illegal parking of vehicles. MMDA General Manager Tim Orbos said they have begun discussions with barangay officials in Metro Manila. “We will deputize barangay officials for anti-illegal parking operations together with MMDA,” said Orbos. Loyola Heights barangay officials, led by Chairman Caesar Marquez, also reached a consensus to revoke the business permits it issued to establishments found violating road and traffic regulations, the MMDA official said. MMDA is expected to conduct similar dialogues and meetings with officials of at least three barangays per week. Orbos said barangay officials also agreed to write commercial establishments within their jurisdiction which are guilty of allowing vehicles to park illegally, particularly supermarkets and restaurants. Meanwhile, Chairman German Sunga of Guadalupe Nuevo, Makati City committed to help the MMDA in the clearing of sidewalk vendors and illegally-parked vehicles particularly in the commercial areas.
