He would also regulate the hiring of security personnel in establishments that serve liquors, limiting them to trained and licensed security guards.

The mayor’s decision came after a shooting incident at the Smallville Complex in Mandurriao last Saturday, August 20, which resulted in the death of a 21-year-old man.
