Pampanga town launches automated business permit system



MACABEBE, Pampanga — An improved and more efficient processing of business permits await the people of this town as the municipal government on Monday launched its e-Business Permit and Licensing System (e-BPLS).

The e-BPLS is a system developed and managed by the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) to aid the local government units (LGUs) in the processing, implementation and monitoring of its business permitting and licensing.

This is also given for free to interested and qualified LGUs.

Myrvi A. Fabia, provincial director of the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG), commended the municipal government for this feat as Macabebe is the first LGU in Pampanga to avail of and implement the e-BPLS provided by the DICT.

She cited how this would help the LGU in promoting economic development and in improving delivery of services to the people.

“Through e-BPLS, the processing of business permits and licensing system would speed up,” Fabia said.

The DILG official also urged other LGUs to go for automation to ease doing business at the local level in order to comply with President Rodrigo Duterte’s directive to streamline frontline services and the licensing and permit system in the entire government bureaucracy.

“It is directive of the President to make government services fast and efficient. I hope other LGUs will follow suit,” she added.

Other key LGU functionaries and agency representatives from DICT and DTI were also present to signify their commitment in making all the LGUs in the province fully-automated. (PNA)

15 public schools in Pampanga to undergo rehab works



CLARK FREEPORT, Pampanga—A total of 15 public schools in Porac town in the province will undergo some improvement works that will make them conducive to students’ learning and wellbeing.

The move is through the support of the Clark Development Corporation (CDC) as part of its corporate social responsibility (CSR) program aimed at improving the educational facilities for students in its neighbor communities.

The state-run firm has donated various construction materials that include paints, hollow blocks, cement, lumber, roofing, and steel bars, among others.

CDC president and CEO Noel F. Manankil, in a statement on Wednesday said the donated materials were identified based on the needs of each school as evaluated by the personnel of the CDC–External Affairs Division.

Among the beneficiaries of the project are Salu Elementary School, Balubad Elementary School, Jalung Elementary School, Pulung Santol Elementary School, Palat Elementary School, Pias Elementary School, Pio Elementary School, Mancatian Elementary School and Pulung Santol High School.

Likewise, elementary schools in Planas, Mitla, Sepung Bulaun, Katutubo and Sapang Uwak villages and at Camias Resettlement in Porac also received the same assistance from CDC.

Manankil said the said schools comprise the first batch of recipients under the project.

“We have the primary moral obligation to support our local government units (LGUs) and we have a lot of programs in CDC that we want them to be involved,” he said.

He added that the state-owned firm, together with its locator companies, will create more strategic and relevant programs for communities especially in terms of education.

“We have a high priority for education because we believe that it is what actually equalized everybody in terms of their social status and in Clark, we want everybody to get involved, come up together and plan to have more relevant and more strategic CSR,” Manankil said. (PNA)

The start of the new year is bleak for the relatives of the seven people who died in a multi-vehicle accident that occurred in Lubao, Pampanga on Wednesday afternoon.

One of the fatalities, Marie Grace David, was on her way from celebrating the New Year with her 12-year-old child, who was injured.

Another fatality was identified as Rowel Flores, 32. Like David, he was on her way home from Dau where he celebrated the New Year. He left behind two children.

Linette Valite, 18, another fatality, meanwhile was on her way to meet her boyfriend.

The rest of the fatalities were identified as Princess Quinto, Alex Razheed Nilayan, John Raven Astrero, and Mary Grace Castro.

Nine others were hurt in the accident, seven of them confined at Pampanga Medical Specialist Hospital and two others at Jose B. Lingad Memorial Regional Hospital in San Fernando, Pampanga.

Footage from CCTV showed a pickup that was about to turn to the main road from Jasa Road. The passenger jeep carrying the victims, which cannot be seen in the video, collided with the pickup that was thrown toward the opposite lane where it was hit by an oncoming truck.

The passenger jeep was a total wreck.

A rescue operation was immediately implemented.

The driver of the pickup truck, 68-year-old Alexander Domingo, is facing charges for reckless imprudence resulting in multiple homicide, physical injuries and damage to properties. He is now detained at the Lubao Municipal Police Station. — Vonne Aquino/BAP/KBK, GMA News
