City Mayor John Geesnell â€œBABAâ€ Yap did a final check on the establishment of the one-stop shop in a coordinative meeting with the various department heads last week. The City Mayor made sure that itâ€™s â€œall systems goâ€ for the business permits application slated on January 4 to February 15 next year. Prior to this, series of meetings were already conducted to plan out the process flow of the application. Atty. Kathy Blanche Borja-Jamila called the different department heads to sit down and discuss the various possibilities which would make the processing easier and convenient for the taxpayers. With Business Permits and Licensing Office (BPLO) Head Samuel Belderol, the team has established a systematic flow to hasten the renewal of permits for both businesses and tricycle operators. Dubbed as the â€œOne-Stop Shopâ€, this all-in-one haven will be situated in the City Hall grounds, fronting the APC building. It will house the key departments needed to facilitate the processing of permits. Leading the pack would be the booth from the BPLO, followed by the City Treasurerâ€™s Office, Office of the Building Official, Zoning, City Health Office, Market, City PNP, City Fire, Department of Trade and Industry, PAG-IBIG, SSS, and PHILHEALTH. A designated area for tricycle inspection is also included. Mayor Yap has adopted this idea to fast track the processing of permits and to make it more convenient to the public.
Requirements should be prepared beforehand to maximize the benefits of the One-Stop Shop. Business establishments should submit the following: 1. An accomplished application form; 2. 2014 Mayorâ€™s Permit or the latest available permit; 3. DTI/SEC Certificate of Registration; 4. Barangay Clearance (owner & employees); 5.
