Mayor Dalipe orders closure of erring gasoline stations in Zamboanga City

Zamboanga City Mayor John Dalipe has ordered the closure of gasoline stations without business permits.

City Administrator Wendell Sotto issued the cease and desist order to erring businesses.

The city government said the Licensing Office initially found 18 gas stations operating illegally. This violates sections 3 and 20 of City Ordinance No. 92-008, Ordinance 2008-148, and other related laws. There are 48 gas stations in the city.

The enforcement team served the stoppage orders to erring gas stations in Barangays Sangali and Bolong on Thursday, July 4. The serving of the orders will continue in the coming days.

Licensing Division Chief Benjie Barredo said the effort seeks to ensure that all businesses in the city operate within the legal framework, prioritizing safety and regulatory compliance.
