ALL ESTABLISHMENTS in Quezon City are now required to have courtesy seats for persons with disability, pregnant women, and senior citizens based on an ordinance recently approved by QC Mayor Herbert M. Bautista. Ordinance No. 2804, S-2018 states that both private and public establishments in the city must provide courtesy seat signages. Owners, managers, and operators of private establishments who will fail to implement the ordinance shall receive a notice of warning for first offense. Further, a fine of P5,000 and/or a six month suspension of business permit on the second offense and a fine of P5,000 and/or revocation of business permit on the third offense shall be ruled out to establishments which will violate the ordinance. — Vince Angelo C.
