Mayor’s permit renewal, retirement extended to Feb. 5

THE DEADLINE for mayor’s permit renewal and retirement applications is extended to Feb. 5 in light of the series of work suspensions of government offices due to non-stop rains.

The city government announced the extension following Proclamation No. 6 issued on Feb. 1, suspending classes at all levels and adopting of work from work-from-home arrangements for government employees.

Business Bureau head Maribel Paguican said the extension is both for the mayor’s permit and application for retirement, initially extended until Jan. 31 from its original Jan. 20 deadline.

In an interview with Davao City Disaster Radio on Jan. 3, Paguican announced that there would be no more extensions for business owners to renew their permits. She also warned them about being meted with penalties if they could not finish the process within the deadline.

Business owners who fail to renew will be fined a 25% surcharge and a 2% penalty per month on top of the surcharge.

The schedule for the renewal and retirement on specific sites on Feb. 5 are as follows: Sangguniang Panlungsod (8 a.m to 10 p.m.); Almendras Gym (8 a.m.- 10 p. m.); Gaisano Grand Citigate Mall (8 a.m. to 8 p.m.); Calinan Gym/Bunawan/Toril/Tugbok District Treasury Offices (8 a.m. to 7 p.m.); and Paquibato/Marilog/Baguio District Treasury Offices is open from 8 am to 5 pm.
