Squatters take over road

Seven years ago, the informal settlers occupying private lots in Garville Subdivision, Sun Valley, Parañaque City, were ejected by landowners. However, they merely built new houses on the cul-de-sac portion of a nearby road still inside the subdivision. As a result, offices and factories in the area that were deprived of access abandoned their businesses one after the other. Today, all of the 10 factories and offices in the area have closed shop. The problem has been brought to the attention of Mayor Florencio Bernabe Jr. although no action has been taken. The same is true of barangay chairman Danilo Santos. Please help us, the presence of informal settlers has resulted in the loss of revenues for the city government. Even worse, the neighborhood has deteriorated.—Lebie Panganiban, Edison Industrial and Commercial Association general manager, Garville Subdivision

Eat at your own risk

A barbecue factory was raided in Quezon City for being unsanitary. What about the one on F. Roxas between 3rd and 4th Avenues? The meat is cooked in big drums on the street.—Raquel, Caloocan City

Street turned into car shop

Cordero Street on 10th Avenue is being used as an extension of a car repair shop. This is bad for the health of residents. Our barangay officials cannot do anything to stop the owner of the shop.—Nitz, Caloocan City
