The DILG San Narciso— in coordination with the Municipality of San Narciso— initiated a Municipal Road Clearing Team Meeting on November 18, 2020— aiming to formulate action plans which will maximize the efficiency of the clearing operations of the barangays— this following the temporary suspension of road clearing operations (RCO) to allow the LGUs to focus on programs, projects and activities (PPAs) addressing the COVID-19 pandemic.
MLGOO Dan A. Esteban discussed the DILG issuances Memorandum Circular (MC) 2020-027 and MC 2020-045 to ensure that the stakeholders have a clear and uniform understanding of the scope of the road clearing operations. This also allowed the barangays to plan within the given time frame— taking into consideration the challenges encountered in the previous RCO implementation which is vital for their implementation strategies. The MLGOO also mentioned that a Tricycle Route Plan will also be inspected during the validation.
As the nation transitions to the New Normal, the Department reiterated the directive before the LGUs to ensure that the roads remain safe, accessible and free from illegal and potentially hazardous encroachments for public use.
