THREE business establishments squatting on the banks of the Iloilo River were given until April 30 to dismantle their structures.

The establishments were to have been demolished by the end of this month, but Iloilo Mayor Jed Patrick Mabilog gave them a reprieve.

Roberto Dumanil, who heads the task force that will carry out the demolition, said the mayor talked things over with representatives of the three establishments, a restaurant owned by Barangay Chairman Jolly Penasales, a car wash and a wastewater treatment facility.


Mabilog said other illegal structures along the river that are due for demolition are the Hartman Dialysis Center and Nena's Manokan.

The dialysis center has no license to operate from the Department of Health and its management is starting to transfer to a new site.

The Department of Tourism regional office is planning to build a tourist information center at the site to be vacated by Nena's Manokan. (LCP/Sunnex)
