The city government reminds Dabawenyos to adhere to the cemetery lease agreement

“Naa natay Lease Contract para sa mga magpalubong sa sementeryo para guided ta kung kinsa tong naa sa mga sementeryo. Naa man na corresponding ordinance na bayaran nila P2,200 renewable every six years. I-remind namo sila na magbuhat na sila sa ilahang Lease Contract,” he said.

Meanwhile, the CEE is eyeing to rehabilitate the public cemeteries in Davao City that will carry a similar compartmentalized design to the Wireless Cemetery.

“I-rehabilitae ang mga sementeryo sama sa pag rehabiltate sa Wireless Cemetery, murag mao na unta to (compartamentalized) ang standard nato nga mapabuhat sa uban pa nga sememteryo. Naay compartamentalized niches ang plano nga pagabuhaton sa lain sementeryo including the perimeter fence,” said Macalipes.

There are 10 public cemeteries in Davao City under the supervision of the CEE namely Wireless Cemetery, Panacan Public Cemetery, Bunawan Public Cemetery, Lubogan Public Cemetery, Calinan Public Cemetery, Tugbok Public Cemetery, Muslim and Christian Cemetery – Maa, Mintal Public Cemetery, Tibungco Public Cemetery, and Muslim and Christian Cemetery –Tagakpan.

The rehabilitation of Tagakpan Public Cemetery is ongoing. Last year, former Mayor Sara Duterte ordered the temporary closure of the Tagakpan Public Cemetery burials to give way to the preparation of its development and modernization.

She also signed Executive Order (EO) No. 7, Series of 2021, which said, “The Tagakpan Public Cemetery is the most ideal City-owned public cemetery to be developed and modernized patterned after the rehabilitated Wireless Public Cemetery.”

“Ongoing na ang rehab sa Tagakpan ug hapit na mahuman. At least naa nay option ang mga naa sa third district,” Macalipes said.
