Get your free Flu Shots

The Barangay Bel-Air Clinic's supply of 2004 anti-flu vaccine is almost depleted. If you have not visited the Clinic for your shot, please do so as soon as possible. This benefit is extended only to all Barangay Bel-Air residents who hold a current Barangay ID.

Association Security Committee Expanded

To further improve our security service, we are pleased to announce that the BAVA Security Committee has designated one resident each from the different phases of the Village as their representative to the Security Committee. The representative will ensure that the security needs of each phase are included and considered in the enforcement, formulation, review and amendment of security policies.

The composition of the Security Committee is as follows:
Chairperson - Danilo K. Dimayuga
Members - Francisco "Boy" Cervantes (Phase I)
Albert Suarez (Phase II)
Antonio Torres (Phase III)
Edward Gabaldon (Phase IV)

The residents should bring their security concerns to their respective phase representatives.

Ecology Reminder

Bel-Air Village residents who want to plant trees, shrubs and bushes on the sidewalk must first secure a permit from the Ecology Committee. Otherwise, a fine of PhP 2,000.00 will be imposed on the violator and the planted tree(s) will be removed. This is in accordance with Board Res. No. 1997-08-05, which likewise authorizes the Association's Ecology Committee to formulate guidelines and recommendations on the kind of tree that may be planted in the sidewalk.

The Ecology Committee and the Beautification and Cleanliness Committee of Barangay Bel-Air agreed to assign a specific specie of tree to plant in every Village street in the residential area for uniformity. This was done in consultation with the tree expert contracted by Barangay Bel-Air.

Report Unattended Swimming Pools of Unoccupied Houses

As you may be already aware, Bel-Air Village has been identified positive of dengue mosquitoes (Aegis egypti) by the Makati City Health Department as a result of the larvitraps placed in several houses. These mosquitoes are normally found in stagnant water, including swimming pools that are not cleaned on a regular basis.

We would like to ask for your cooperation by reporting immediately to the Association unattended swimming pools especially in vacant properties.

Street Parking of Commercial / Unattended / Unserviceable Vehicles Inside the Village is Not Allowed

The Village streets were designed for residential purposes and parking of private cars owned by residents are tolerated. Under the provisions of BAVA Board Res. No. 95-3-07, 6-wheelers, delivery trucks/panels, and commercial cars are prohibited from parking along the Village streets. These should be parked inside the garage of the owner. BAVA will report the illegal parking to MAPSA for towing if no corrective action is taken by the vehicle owner after receipt of two written notices.

Further, under BAVA Board Res. No. 1-94-01, parking of unattended/unserviceable vehicles along the Village streets is likewise not allowed. A final warning will be given to the vehicle owner before the Association will arrange for its towing at the expense of the owner.

III. Validation of Voter's Registration

What is Validation?

Validation is the process whereby a registered voter presents himself/herself before the Election Officer to update his/her registration record by submitting to live capture of his/her digital photograph, fingerprints and signature using the Data Capture Machine.

For the convenience of the Barangay Bel-Air Constituents, Comelec representatives will be available at the Gemini Room, Bel-Air Community Center on Friday, October 17, 2003 to Thursday, October 23, 2003 from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. to process our application form.

To facilitate, the Barangay office can now attend to the initial procedures as follows:

1. Check if your name is included in the Computerized Voters List (CVL) submitted to the Barangay Office by the Comelec. Please visit the Barangay during office hours.

2. If your name is included in the CVL, get one application form for validation for you to accomplish. This form should be in duplicate (i.e., two copies). Since we only have limited copies available, please take care of reproducing the form. DO NOT SIGN THE ACCOMPLISHED FORM. You will only sign the said form in front of the Comelec Interviewer during the validation days. It is important that you validate your Comelec registration record to be able to avoid the hassle of thorough scrutiny of the Election Officer during the election day on May 10, 2003.

3. Bring the accomplished application form for Validation to the Barangay Office on Friday, October 17, 2003 to Thursday, October 23, 2003 from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.

For your reference and guidance, listed below are procedures to be followed during the validation of voters registration that will be conducted at Barangay Bel-Air on the dates aforementioned.

1. Please make sure that you have completed the first two requirements mentioned above.
2. Present the two copies of the accomplished application form to the Comelec Interviewer for assignment of serial number of the application and your corresponding precinct number.
3. Proceed to photo capturing, fingerprinting and signature.
