DUE to mounting complaints from motorists over alleged cases of extortion, the Makati city government suspends its anti-smoke belching operations.
Makati Mayor Jejomar Erwin Binay on Tuesday ordered the suspension of the operations of the Makati Pollution and Control Office (MPCO) also because of the failure of its enforcers to comply with the implementing guidelines of the local vehicle emission code and the Clean Air Act or Republic Act 8749.
Binay has directed the Office of the City Administrator, headed by Atty. Eleno Mendoza, to conduct a thorough investigation of the complaints.
