By now, many of you may have noticed the misleading announcement by
the (sic) Paranaque
City government regarding our stickers.
Please be advised that UBFHAI has nothing to do with those
streamers. UBFHAI 2006
stickers continue to be available at the UBFHAI Clubhouse,
#37 Pilar Banzon St. and are
valid until 31
They are very valuable as identification for our homeowners who go
in and out of our satellite villages, but more importantly when they exit
and re-enter through our Tirona Gate at Alabang Hills. Remember that UBFHAI
carefully checks and encodes the particulars of all vehicles which are
issued our stickers.
You are therefore advised to ignore the pronouncements made by
irresponsible persons, and secure your stickers as usual. Such statements by
them are only meant to discourage people from securing stickers, in order to
strangle UBFHAI financially.
It is easy to see through the shallowness of the announcement. If
the general motoring public is allowed to enter even without stickers, how
can the city government not honor UBFHAI’s 2006 stickers? We have the right
to put any sticker on our cars without interference from anybody.
The actuations of the city government are bizarre:
First, the mayor opened our roads
ostensibly in aid of commercialization, and to help solve (sic)
Paranaque’s traffic problems. Hurriedly, he enforced the ordinance
without any Implementing Rules and Regulations as require by law.
Second, the same ordinance states that
BF homeowners shall be consulted as to the time the roads shall be
opened to the public, as well as the days, excepting Sundays and
holidays. Well, UBFHAI’s homeowners have NOT BEEN CONSULTED in any way,
yet the roads have remained open 24/7!
Further, we checked, but there is no
NO REFERENCE whatsoever to UBFHAI stickers, or the validity thereof
in the city ordinance. Is the city government playing mind games with
us? There is a serious lack of logic, and IT ASTOUNDS THE EDUCATED MIND.
Two conclusions – either they want to discourage the purchase of
UBFHAI stickers, and/or they want to sell their own stickers, in which case
IT IS GRAFT.
Let us continue buying the 2006 UBFHAI stickers. They are a source
of genuine identification in our village, our enclaves, and the Tirona gate.
It is an appreciable sign of support for your mother association. As for the
city government’s stickers, LET’S DISREGARD THEM. They have no added value.
