QC buys ‘Justice on Wheels’ bus for lower courts
THE Quezon City Council has passed a resolution authorizing Mayor Herbert Bautista to donate a “Justice on Wheels” bus to the city’s lower courts.
District 3 Councilor Eufemio Lagumbay introduced City Resolution 7118 to support the program of the judiciary in making trial courts more accessible to the public through the Justice on Wheels bus.
According to the resolution, the city’s regional trial courts “shall take care of the succeeding insurance coverage, renewal of registration expenditures and maintenance cost of the Justice on Wheels bus.”
“I look forward to seeing more mobile courts to help facilitate the resolution of non-complex cases in the city,” Bautista said.
Meanwhile, the 36-member city council gave Bautista authority to strengthen the commitment with various people’s organizations for better and continuous cooperation and coordination of their activities with the city government.
Under City Resolution 7111 introduced by District 6 Councilor Eric Medina, “a methodical way to strengthen its linkages is by improving the delivery of basic services, capability building and livelihood projects, and developing local entrepreneurship towards the enhancement of the city constituents’ social and economic well-being.”
