The Dumaguete City government yesterday issued closure notices to 19 lotto outlets for operating without a mayor's permit.
Mayor Manuel Sagarbarria also designated a team composed of Task Force Sagarr members to deliver the notices and, so far, no hitches have been noted. The operators have been given 15 days to windup their businesses.
Sagarbarria had earlier said the issue on illegal lotto operation could be used as an election concern, but he said he cannot issue business permits to the operators without the approval of the Sangguniang Panlungsod.
