ORMOC CITY – Ormoc City has recently passed its Road Safety Code, making it the 2nd city in the country to have such, next to Quezon City. 

Ormoc Mayor Richard I. Gomez lauded the 15th Sangguniang Panlungsod for finally passing the ordinance. He said its passage is timely as the City had just finished implementing its city-wide traffic scheme, putting order in the city streets in what was previously thought undoable. 

“The Road Safety Code is aimed at saving lives, both the motorists and pedestrians,” he said. “One life lost in an accident is one life too many,” said the mayor who is known for implementing the Helmet Law strictly even in far-flung barangays.  read more

Ormoc back to MGCQ

ORMOC CITY – A day after he placed Ormoc City on General Community Quarantine (GCQ) under EO 89 starting September 1, 2020, Mayor Richard I. Gomez again issued another Executive Order 89-A easing it and abided with the national declaration of a Modified General Community Quarantine (MGCQ) all over the country with the exception of a few cities and municipalities.

However, the mayor retained the “modified” liquor ban, prohibiting the consumption of alcohol in restaurants, carenderias, and sari-sari stores. The selling and buying of alcohol are allowed but consumption should only be done in homes.  read more
