‘Anti-dangling wires ordinance a success; Baguio safer and better’ – Mayor Magalong

Updated: Jun 13

Baguio City, Philippines - Cable wires, many of which hang loosely from street posts, can pose a threat to life and property. 


This is why the city government of Baguio, through the leadership of Mayor Benjamin Magalong, is actively implementing its “anti- dangling wires” ordinance to ensure public safety and maintain the beauty of the summer capital.


On June 3, Magalong spoke with the Baguio City Information Office and shared that the city was successful in its efforts to fix and improve public utility cables and wires throughout the city.


“Ang laki na ng improvement natin diyan sa pag-alis ng dangling wires. Hundreds of kilometers na ang natanggal. Ang laki na ng improvement natin sa problemang iyan as compared to 2019,” said the mayor.

With this accomplishment, Magalong praised the cooperation and quick action of various telecommunication firms and the Benguet Electric Company (BENECO) in responding to complaints of residents regarding dangling wires.


“In a matter of one or two hours, these companies immediately respond to complaints and fix the problem. I would like to commend and recognize their efforts. Ang laki ng pagkakaiba ng serbisyo nila,” he said.


The mayor further stressed that the city will take further measures to address the issue of dangling or spaghetti wires, which are not only an eyesore but also a cause of hazard to the residents and visitors.
