Sabado, Linggo lang jamming! Fresnedi bans weekday karaoke use in Muntinlupa
Muntinlupa mayor Jaime Fresnedi has signed an ordinance banning the use of karaoke during weekdays to prevent students and workers from being distracted while at home.
City Ordinance 2020-142 regulates the use of karaokes, videokes, and other similar equipment causing noise pollution in the community during weekdays and limiting its use and operation on weekends.
Under the ordinance, the use of karaokes, videokes, and other sound-making devices will only be allowed from 6:00am to 10:00pm during Saturdays and to 6:00am to 8:00pm during Sundays.
However, public announcements made by local and national government agencies using sound-producing machines/devices are exempted from the implementation of the ordinance.
Residents who will violate the ordinance shall be penalized with a fine from P2,000.00 to P5,000.00 or imprisonment of not more than thirty (30) days, or both.
Members of the Philippine National Police-Muntinlupa, Public Order and Security Office, City Security Office, Barangay Chairpersons and their personnel are set to augment monitoring and roving operations in the community to implement the regulation on videokes and other noise-making devices.
