The respondents were advised to voluntarily demolish their structures before June 21 to avoid confiscation of materials.

On May 30, Mayor Romeo Salda signed the demolition order for the illegal structures. It was received by representatives of Tiotioen.

Under the demolition order, the Community Environment and Natural Resources Office of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources issued several certifications against the illegal structures.

The Office of the Municipal Engineer in addition certified the structures with geo-tagged photographs of the improvements introduced inside the communal forest with the coordinates not covered by building permits.

The Municipal Building Office will serve as the demolition team in coordination with the City Environment and Natural Resources Office, Municipal Environment and Natural Resources Office, and La Trinidad police.

In April, some 499 hollow blocks and 142 sacks of sand were confiscated in the forest.
