Mike Rama proposes creation of Task Force Disiplina
Cebu City Mayor Mike Rama is expected to issue an executive order (EO) imposing strict discipline on residents, in line with his goal of elevating the city to the level of Singapore.
Rama said that the EO could be issued on or before October 1, institutionalizing the proposed Task Force Disiplina (TFD).
The task force will be composed of the Philippine National Police, Armed Forces of the Philippines, barangay officials and civilian volunteers. (https://bit.ly/3r6Yy20)
It will be implementing existing laws and ordinances that involve health, sanitation, environment, traffic rules, and education among others.
The TFD requires barangays to have a center where individuals who violate any city ordinance can be held.
This week, Rama said that he will hold a series of stakeholder consultations before issuing the final version of the EO.
The gist of the order, he added, is to develop a bottom-up approach to imposing discipline that must begin at home.
The “Singapore-like city” vision was first mentioned by Rama during his inaugural speech last June 30.
