Gov Defensor allows quarrying on Sundays for selected operators
Iloilo Governor Arthur Defensor Sr on March 23 vowed to be “moderate” in the regulation of quarry operations in the province.
The Iloilo politiko made the statement after several contractors made an appeal due to the lack of quarry materials.
Defensor said he will allow selected quarries to operate on Sundays.
He explained that the contractors’ projects with the government will be cancelled if the delays continue.
“If we will not give way to that, the contractors will not be able to comply with their timeline because they do not have sources of sand and gravel,” Defensor said.
