TUESDAY NIGHT, 19 AUG, 6 PM AT THE BLUE BOAR INN STABLE. JOIN HOWARD MCKAY
AN EVENING TO REMEMBER AND GIVE A FINAL GOOD BYE TO DOGGY DAVE THROUGH STORIES, SONG AND A BIT OF DRINK.
This information was sent to me by a reliable source:
Today if you read PUNTO newspaper, the story says everything is back to “NORMAL” at GGLC. http://punto.com.ph/News/Article/21036/Volume-8-No-7/Headlines/u-UNAFFECTED-BY-GGLC-ROW-u-br-The-Medical-City-Clark-set-to-open-Dec-8
Yet only a few hours earlier on 14 Aug, GGDC (Kuwaiti fund) tried to forcibly take over the GGLC site with 100 new guards (they had the guards on buses on Spur Rd). LOL. Unable to convince CDC and the PNP to allow them and WITHOUT a Court Order, the guards were sent back to Manila.
Today about noon, Mark Williams, President of GGDC was back asking for the NOTICE sign to be removed. NOTE: He is the one who on 3 June, closed two checking Accounts and REMOVED 1.6M USD to pay vendors and payroll. Today, CIAC and PNP SOSIA, were both called out because GGDC wanted these signs removed. The signs remained, because Peregrine is still in control of the GGLC.
The Sign on the guard shack says:
THIS SITE IS CLOSED AND OFF LIMITS. ALL WORK SUSPENDED EFFECTIVE JUNE 3, 2014 DUE TO CESSATION OF FUNDING BY GGDC.
Now the CEO of The Medical City (their hospital is being built), CEO of Clark Development Corp and President of GGDC would have you believe with misinformation that everything is “normal” on GGLC. They have huge ads in the news papers in Manila just this week. Yes there IS NO work going on the site and it is completely closed down.
The project is in legal dispute pending arbitration in Singapore and is shut down. Over 170 Peregrine workers were laid off in July, $5M in unpaid liabilities to local vendors … it is unfortunate that the public is continued to be misled. An estimate +1000 workers, subcontractors, have lost their jobs too.
It would be nice is someone would do more investigation and get the truth out. Until them, I will send out occasional updates.
(I wrote a detailed article about this situation in my column and I specifically stated that the work on Medical City Clark has come to a standstill. Then today I read in the Sun Star that all is well and that they expect to open the hospital ahead of schedule. This is a complete fabrication!
Note the name Mark Williams in the above statement. This man has definitely taken a major roll in the removal of operational funds from the Peregrine account. This battle is being fought in the courts but despite decisions against KGL Manila Mark must feel that he is above the law and now wants to apply old style questionable heavy handed actions by a goon squad in uniforms. Is he afraid of the courts?
Received this from an anonymous source. Could it be something bar owners in Angeles City have been hoping for the last few years? It certainly is past due!
Some other news. General Purisima has ordered a full investigation in to the RSOG at Camp Olivas. The Internal Affairs officers have been here for the last several days (Subic). They mentioned that the investigation also extends into their activities in Angeles City.
This should be good news for Cynthia Anderson and many bar owners in town who have been victimized.
Problem: I doubt that any bar owners will cooperate with any investigation for fear of repercussions. This is still a Third World County with a strong revenge mentality.
I AM IN SHOCK AS I WRITE THIS. I WAS JUST INFORMED THAT DOGGY DAVE WAS MURDERED IN HIS HOUSE AT 5 PM LAST NIGHT. IT APPEARS TO HAVE BEEN A ROBBERY BY TWO FILIPINO MEN THAT HE MIGHT HAVE KNOWN SINCE HE GAVE THEM ENTRANCE TO THE HOUSE.
HIS NEIGHBOR (A FOREIGNER) HEARD YELLING FROM THE HOUSE, “HELP, HELP”, TOLD HIS WIFE AND SHE THOUGHT IT WAS THE TV. BUT HE SAID “NO, IT SOUNDED LIKE A REAL VOICE”. HE CALLED 117 (EMERGENCY #) AND IT TOOK THE POLICE ONE HOUR TO ARRIVE. THE NEIGHBOR SAW THE TWO MEN LEAVING AND WAS ABLE TO GET THE LICENSE # OF THE TRICYCLE. HOWARD ARRIVED ON THE SCENE AT 7 PM. DOGGY LIVED IN PLARIDEL NEAR BLUE FIELDS HOTEL.
THIS IS HORRIBLE NEWS AS DAVE HAD SO MANY FRIENDS AND WOULD NOT HARM A FLY. IF IT WAS ROBBERY THE BASTARDS WOULD NOT HAVE GOTTEN MUCH AS DAVE LIVED A SIMPLE LIFE. HIS DAUGHTER IS COMING HOME FROM BAGUIO WHERE SHE IS IN RESIDENCE COMPLETING HER TWO YEAR REQUIREMENT AT THE HOSPITAL.
DOGGY HAD REQUESTED THAT HE WOULD LIKE TO DIE QUICKLY AND BE CREMATED. THE MANNER IN WHICH HE DIED IS TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE. NO OTHER DETAILS AVAILABLE AT THIS TIME. HIS FRIEND OF 25 YEARS HOWARD MCKAY WILL TAKE CARE OF ALL THE DETAILS AND ASSIST THE DAUGHTER.
A BIT OF MUSIC DIED LAST NIGHT.
UPDATE: DOGGY DIED AS A RESULT OF BEING STABBED 7 OR 8 TIMES WITH AN ICE-PICK. IT APPEARS THAT THE MURDERERS WERE TWO LOCALS EMPLOYED BY DAVE TO WORK ON HIS GARDEN. WILL REPORT MORE DETAILS WHEN THE SUSPECTS HAVE BEEN APPREHENDED. DAVE WAS CREMATED AT 6 pm, 13 AUG AT LA PIETA FUNERAL HOME.
GOLDEN CALYPSO RAID UPDATE: I WAS ABLE TO GATHER ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON THE CALYPSO RAID. IT TURNS OUT THAT FOUR CUSTOMERS WERE DETAINED AND TAKEN TO CAMP CRAME AND THEY DID HAVE TO PAY A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF MONEY TO BE RELEASED. THE POLICE WERE ON THE PREMISES FOR FIVE HOURS, WHICH IS A LONG TIME. THE RAID WAS CONDUCTED BY THE CIDG (ACTU UNIT – I NEVER HEARD OF THIS UNIT BEFORE) OUT OF CAMP CRAME. THE EMPLOYEES TAKEN WERE HELD FOR 50 HOURS BEFORE ANY ACTIONS WERE TAKEN. THE GIRLS WERE FORCED TO SIT AND SLEEP ON THE COLD FLOOR BEFORE EVENTUALLY GETTING SOME MATS. ALL GIRLS RELEASED EXCEPT FOR TWO WHO WERE DETAINED. FOUR OTHERS WERE HELD BY DSWD FOR SUSPICION OF BEING UNDERAGE BUT NO MINORS WERE FOUND.
I WAS VERY CONCERNED WHEN I HEARD THAT MARK (HOLLYWOOD) WAS DETAINED AS HE WAS NOT A MANAGER OF OWNER OF THE CLUB. HIS DUTY WAS AS MC FOR THE SHOWS, SOMETHING HE HAS BEEN DOING FOR VARIOUS CLUBS OVER MANY YEARS. I WAS SADDENED TO HEAR THAT HE MAY BE CHARGED WITH HUMAN TRAFFICKING AND IS WAITING FOR DISPOSITION OF THE CASE. I DO NOT KNOW IF HE WILL BE TRANSFERRED TO ANGELES CITY JAIL OR KEPT IN MANILA. THIS WOULD BE A TRAVESTY OF JUSTICE IF SUCH CHARGES ARE PUSHED THROUGH.

Comments and Remarks: Harry, Just got word that Gordy (Gordon Matthew Gale) also known as drummer, was found dead in a hotel in Makati. Suicide is a possibility but I’ve learned from you never take things on their face in this country. Anyway, he was a great guy and I wanted you to know.
I am in shock. I have known Gordy for a very long time. The last time I saw him was at the opening at Tony J’s and he was in high spirits. I can’t imagine that he would commit suicide.
I received this information from someone who knew Gordy. It might explain a few things.
“He was destitute and desperate. He sent a blanket email asking for help to repatriate in order to see his dying mother for the last time. His lease on his apartment was up a couple of days ago, and he was asking around for information on cheap accommodations in Thailand. He was found in a hotel in Makati with a .38 with the serial number filed off.”
American found dead in Makati hotel
By Mike Frialde (The Philippine Star) | Updated August 10, 2014 – 12:00am
MANILA, Philippines – A 59-year-old American man was found dead in a room of a Makati City hotel on Friday afternoon. A report reaching the Southern Police District identified the victim as Gordon Matthew Gale of Casa del Mar, Baloy Beach, Olongapo City. Gale checked into the hotel in Barangay Guadalupe Nuevo at about 1:37 p.m. on Thursday. Gale told the hotel staff that he would be staying overnight, according to police.
At about past 3 p.m. on Friday, hotel supervisor Michael Puzon and assistant supervisor Rescon Talagua found Gale’s body when they checked his room after he failed to answer their reminder of his check-out time. Gale was lying on the bed with blood on his face. An Armscor .38 caliber revolver with serial number 31555 was found near the right side of his body, police said. The victim’s body was then taken to the Veronica Funeral Home. The Makati City police said the United States embassy was informed of Gale’s death. Investigators are still looking at the possibility of foul play in the incident.
At 11:42 PM last night I received this text from a source: ”Nirvana just being raided at present”. I found this to be a bit shocking as this Club has only been opened for a couple of months.
The second text read: “Heard from San Fernando 2 Malaysians set them up with bar fines”.
I will update as I find out additional information.
Saturday Night Raids
At approximately 1030pm on Sat 2 Aug Calypso & Grand Pharaoh were raided by CIDG Manila….Read
There are lots of rumors, but too early for determining full details. I will update this post in the next few days as we know more. Details from a reliable source:
The raid was conducted by CIDG Manila.
They used a Korean asset to pay a bar fine and promptly raided straight after.
They detained customers, all girls and staff. They questioned all foreigners found on the premises but let the majority go after having inspected their identification documents.
Before releasing any foreigners they were asking if any of them is the manager or owner of the bar.
They detained Mark, aka “Hollywood” who was actually on the microphone as the MC during the “Search for Queen of Calypso” event.
They questioned all girls and after making them write down their name. They reportedly released all girls who were 20 or over.
They brought in a huge black bus which they parked outside Calypso & Grand Pharaoh at 3:AM.
Posted by JC on 2014-08-02
I received a text last Saturday night informing me of the raid and provided most of the details provided by JC above but wanted to wait for further confirmation. I must admit that I was sorry that this raid took place after enjoy a month or so of relative peace. I knew the raids would occur again but was hoping for a longer break.
Once again a Korean asset was used and once again the “bar fine” set up procedure was used. The detention of “Hollywood” was uncalled for. He is not a manager, not an owner, just someone performing as an MC, something he has been doing for years in this town. I can only hope for his quick release.
t do not like the idea of questioning the customers in their attempt to capture an owner or manager.
Here is an eyewitness report:
To start I was there taking pictures at the 9 – 11pm dance contest event. At 10:30pm a girl came running through the bar and out the back staircase, not a particularly unusual occurrence I initially thought. A few seconds later as I am standing there huge SLR camera in hand many more girls come flowing up to the back of the bar until one girl yelled “RAID”. That was it, the stampede began. Within seconds girls jumping tables, grabbing bags, abandoning drinks and running for the back.
Upon hearing this I threw my camera into it’s carry bag but was worried what might happen if they saw me with it as it contained about 400 pictures from in the bars. Quickly I removed the memory cards and hid them in my wallet.
Just as I packed away the cards a real official looking guy with a CIDG shirt and hand radio walked the length of the bar. At this point most customers had thrown some cash in their bill cup and were making their way to the door, so I did the same with my girl clinging to my arm. I assumed they would let me leave but I was worried about her being detained.
Approaching the door a lot of pushing and shoving was taking place and I saw Hollywood being walked to the entrance of Level 1 bar, I was not sure if he was being taken by choice or not. As I reached the officer at the door I could see the large luxury bus with curtains in all the windows parked across the length of the Pharaoh group bars. One foreigner and his wife were in front of me trying really hard to convince them to let them leave, but to no avail. In a last ditch effort he tried to run through the officers which was just as effective as talking to them. We were all ushered back inside followed by the officer that first walked in.
Once inside he had all the girls including my girl and other customers girls stand on one side of the bar and all the customers on the other (about 3 of us). The officer said that we were to be taken to Camp Crame in Manila and he started to file everyone towards the back of the bar. It was at this point I decided to ditch my camera in the pile of girls bags near the front door.
It became clear that we were all being taken into Level 1 bar through the doorway linking the 2 bars together on the 2nd floor. While the officer was not looking I ditched my business cards under some handbags laying around on the tables.
Once through the doorway it was more clear why there was such a large bus and only one or two officers in Calypso, They were raiding all three bars. Level 1 was full of alteast 20 customers, a fair few officers in assorted clothing (armed with nothing more than handguns) and just packed wall to wall with the girls that didn’t escape.
At this point I sat at one of the tables turned to the manager and said “Damn, I could use a drink.” I also found that any customer who had walked out the front of Calypso were now in Level 1 including Hollywood. The bar was strangely quiet with all the girls mostly in shock or fear, all the foreigners talked amongst themselves about who they knew, what they had heard, what had happened in previous raids and a few gathered their cash to try to pay someone off.
10 minutes passed and nothing seemed to be happening other than by the pool table I could see girls writing their names and what I later learnt was their age on blank sheets of line paper. Unsurprisingly I saw officers carrying out “evidence” in the form of the accounting books. As I sat at this table trying to reassure my girl, another customers girl started to yell and argue with one of the officers. The officer seemed to be ignoring anything we asked him and all he could say was, they are taking us to Camp Crame for “verification”. This girl really laid it on hard to the officer and her boyfriend couldn’t even hold her back. She kept at him until the officer eventually retreated out the door.
Eventually a very patronizing officer who seemed to be above the rest, started requesting foreigner ID’s. He then wrote down the foreigners names, asked if they were the manager, and then after a while announced that we could leave. I didn’t exactly trust his claim as there was a big commotion as the first few guys went to leave, I thought maybe they were just the first to leave… On the bus. I gave my ID and was told I could leave but my girl had to stay, I claimed she is my girlfriend I would not leave without her. Just to be safe I moved towards the exit with my girl and luckily asked a friendly looking officer if the guys were in fact being put on the bus. He reassured me this was not the case and asked me about my girl, which again I claimed to this new guy that she is my girlfriend. He took her over to the guy in charge who was writing down the name, a quick Tagalog exchange and a long pause accompanied by some puppy dog eyes, the guy caved in and let us both go.
We wasted no time as this point as soon as we got the nod I near ran for the door with girl in hand. Once out the door all I could see was this huge bus and some officers at the ends of it to ensure no runners. I proceeded unobstructed past the bus and ducked under the awning of the hotel across the street. I had no intention of leaving as my camera was still in Calypso which I was not going to come back to Shagger and say I had lost.
Little more happened for the next few minutes the rain, a huge crowd with umbrellas and a giant bus made seeing anything near impossible. At this point my knees were still wobbly and I needed a rest so I decided to try out the new Mexican place outside nearby High Society. The taco was great and I felt more relaxed to go back and watch the proceedings.
At one point some girls were released or escaped they ran a short distance when out so it was not clear exactly what the case was. As these girl ran the crowd swamped the area almost as if to lay down cover for the girls. This opened up an opportunity for me because the entire crowd was focused around the bus and level 1 entrance which meant the entrance to Calypso was behind the crowd line though still blocked by a chair and likely manned by and officer on the inside. This seemed like the best time to stand by the door, by a stroke of luck an officer tried to open the door from inside but the chair held it close. I helpfully pulled the chair out of the way for him and simply told him my bag was just inside could I grab it. He immediately asked what sort of bag which had me worried, I naively answered “A blue one.” He pushed the door open and I flew down the steps grabbed the bag and was half way up the street within seconds.
I talked with some of the girls and guys who were let out, (mamasans and off duty managers)to gain a clearer picture of what was going on. Basically they were looking for managers and the owner along with any underage girl. I spoke to a girl who was so nervous after getting out she was shaking and almost stuttering. She told me what they were doing was taking each girls name and age down on paper and then interviewing them. Any girl over the age of 20 was allowed to leave, also most customers were allowed to leave except the ones without any photo IDs or that were somehow suspect. After an hour I knew they still had Hollywood and the manager, I soon learnt that everyone inside was told that if they were seen txting phones would be confiscated. Girls continued to trickle out one and two at a time but no more guys yet. However then one of the manager came walking out who ran into one of the off duty managers. This off duty manager relayed a lot of the above information from the manager who had made a speedy exit.
Amazingly a girl I know who was there alone as a customer got out which seemed surprising but she told me that though they were clearly older the Calypso waitresses were being held and questioned about the group owner. Additionally she said that the reason Hollywood was not out is because he was being accused of being the OIC or general manager.
After trials and tribulations, much stress, financial strains and whatever, happily, Honey-Ko’s has reopened. The word from the Boss:
“thanks mate. we up 2 28 girls already and have new mamasan starting monday. still chasing some license 4 girls. hope 2 have more paperwork 2day.”
“mamasan pulled out so nominated one of my girls 4 now.”
Happy days are here again as one of the most popular bars on Perimeter Road has opened its doors again. Starting slow but picking up steam with each passing day.
73-yr-old British man arrested for child porn
By Zyann Ambrosio, ABS-CBN News
Posted at 07/22/2014 5:16 PM | Updated as of 07/22/2014 5:16 PM
MANILA – A 73-year-old British national was arrested in Angeles, Pampanga on child pornography charges, the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) said on Tuesday. The NBI Cybercrime Division said Douglas Michael Slade was arrested in his home after nude pictures of children were recovered from him during a raid.
According to the NBI, Slade has been inviting children aged 9 to 12 years old to enter his house where he offers them food and money to convince them to pose nude. The suspect allegedly pays the children P150 to P250. For his part, Slade denied the allegations. He, however, refused to answer questions from the media.
(This is not the first time that Doug Slade has been apprehended for offenses against young children. Somehow, each time he has been able to stay out of jail. Doug is the owner of “Home Base” in the Plaridel area and has provided meat and other products to the local Expat community for years. Years ago he had rented a home in Carmenville with a swimming pool in which he allowed many young children to swim and have a break from the hot weather. Each time Doug has been detained he has denied the allegations and been able to move on with his life. It will be interesting to see what happens this time)
M. DOUGLAS MICHAEL SLADE (1995)
A British paedophile accused of child molestation in Angeles City. PREDA investigated and found another one of his victims and filed charges against Slade who is now on trial in Angeles City.
News of the World
A former navy officer who prepared dinners for the Queen on the Royal yacht Britannia faces life in prison for molesting boys.
Retired Lieutenant Commander Douglas Michael Slade, 64, will stand trial on paedophile charges after allegedly abusing children as young as 13 at his home in the Philippines.
Police say they caught him abusing a 15-year-old boy and exposing another 14-year-old boy to a pornographic film.
Five children aged 13 to 17 claims they were molested by Slade between 2003 and 2005.
Slade originally from Aylesbury, Bucks, has lived in the Philippines for 21 years and runs a shop selling home-made pies to British expats.
Child welfare workers have nicknamed him “The Pork Pie Paedophile”.
Slade was first arrested in September last year after police swooped on his apartment in the town of Angeles, notorious for under-age sex and child-sex tourism.
He was due to appear in court in February but failed to attend and after being arrested again in March posted bail of £6,000.
Slade pleaded not guilty to all the charges at a hearing at the Angeles Trial Court earlier this week. His trial is due to begin on 12 April.
Slade faced similar charges in the mid-90s after four youngsters aged 11 to 14 were allegedly found naked with him in his swimming pool but the case was settled out of court.
He was exposed in 1975 as the ringleader of a group called Paedophile Action for Liberation, which aimed to make paedophilia legal.
Another Briton also faces paedophile charges in the Philippines after allegedly abusing kids.
Barry Edwards, 60, was arrested three years ago and is due in court later this month.
An earlier charge of raping a 14-year-old girl against the former university Maths lecturer at the Middlesex University was dropped.
Child-welfare worker Father Shay Cullen said: “There are more British paedophiles coming to the Philippines since the conviction of Garry Glitter in Vietnam.
“They too will be caught and face a minimum 17 year in prison. They treat children as sex toys for their sexual gratification and buy them for the price of a hamburger.
“Douglas Slade has evaded justice in the past when he was accused of sexually abusing small boys here. We at the Preda center for children are doing all we can to see justice done and prevent the pay-off of victims and their parents. [End]
This is an item I would have waited until Aug to publish but I am so angry that this man questioned my integrity that I am publishing it here now.
Dear Harry, I have just started a 3 month contract at Burger Shack, playing the piano. I read your review, and wanted to clear up a few things. The burgers start at 155 pesos. All my friends have enjoyed the burgers and these kids are having a soft opening.
I think you might have been a little hard on them, but for your own edification, your blog is so powerful and so many people take it as Gospel, that 5 people have said to me that the word on the street (read Harry the Horse) is that the burgers are no good. The answer to the question “have you been there and tried one?” is always no! So my humble request is for your readers firstly to understand the correct price of a burger, and for goodness sake, go and try one for yourself!
I play Friday, Saturday and Sunday
best regards, Chris Marshal
Chris, thank you for writing back to me and explaining that I misinterpreted your comment about “go and try one for yourself”. Yes, I did think you meant me instead of the five people you spoke to. Naturally, I do realize that the Burger Shack was having a soft opening and will listen to comments from customers. Maybe the majority of their customers will like the burger being served and decide not to make any changes. Maybe they will be able to give proper printed receipts when asked for one. One makes allowances for a soft opening. I was not hard on the kids, I was only critical of the hamburger. My opinion of the burger presently served remains the same but I wish them success and of course hope that your musical weekend gig will bring in a lot of business.
Your DAV Chapter 3 will hold a very important general membership meeting (GMM) this Friday, July 11th at 11 AM in the VFW Post 2485 Essary Room. This meeting will not only decide the fate of our Chapter (whether to continue), but also elect chapter officers for 2014-2015, if we do decide to remain a chapter. We also need volunteer service representatives to man the office and decide how many days we will be open for counseling/assistance. Please attend if at all possible. Hope to see you there!
Well Harry….another American passed away this afternoon…his name is Bobby De Leon..
Was playing pool at Silly Hat…had a massive stroke at the bar..we took him to ONA Hosp….was DOA….Dr pronounced him dead 1600 hrs..today… Danny J.
That came as a shock to me. It is only 4:30 PM now. I knew Bobby, been playing pool here for years. will add more details as to viewing and burial as soon as i receive them.
On Friday night while at Phillie’s I was told that the Red Bar, Q Bar and Shipwreck were raided and girls taken away on Thursday night.
In fact, this was an inspection by the Balibago Barangay officials who checked ID’s and only took those girls who were not wearing ID’s. This was not a raid in a literal sense. Bar owners and Mamasan’s know that each employee must be wearing their ID when working. Not to do so could leave one open for harassment. The bars remain open and business as usual.
Am announcing this as some people might get the wrong impression when they see the work “raid”.
I will forward this to Barangay Captin Tony Mamac to see if he is going to be making these unannounced “inspections” on a regular basis.
This is what I was afraid of. Just got this Email from a reader and he has the wrong idea:
From Richard M.
Comments and Remarks: Harry. Thought I’d share this with you. Last night about midnight I get a text from a girl I know who works at the Q Bar down on Fields. They were raided by the Barangay. They took all the girls away, in 4 vehicles, and held them at their headquarters until the owner paid 1,000 peso each for their release. They were only gone for maybe 2 hours and no one was charged with anything. If that’s not kidnapping for ransom I’ll eat my shirt. (As I said above, the girls were in violation of Barangay regulations and the fine was justified. It is like not wearing a helmet when riding a motorcycle or motor bike. It is a violation you might get away with for a long time but when the police decide to crack down, you will have to pay a fine. The Barangay Captain has the right to inspect and that is what this was, NOT a raid. Now, believe me, other bars will start making sure their girls are wearing their ID’s. Even in my little place I am making sure that ID cards are worn while on duty. Now, did they have to take the ladies away, not really, I am sure the owners would have come up with the fine money but there might have been some ladies working that had not obtained their ID’s yet and that is a no-no. So, no harm done, no “RAID” per se!)
In answer to my query to Barangay Capt Tony Mamac, his reply follows:
Actually they are not 80. All in all 81. Yes we collected 1,000 each as payments for fines pursuant to the provision of Brgy Ordinance nr. 2 and we issued appropriate official receipt after payment of the fines. All those who will be found working without Barangay Clearance or Working Clearance shall be penalized with fines or appropriate charges for violation of said ordinance. They choose to pay the fines. It is their call. After numerous advise both during meetings and communications pertaining to the consequences for violating or ignoring the ordinance i think there is no need to inform them any actions nor inspections by the MANCOM in the future.It is their duties and responsibility to comply.
