By Alfonso T. Ruda

DIPOLOG CITY - The provincial office of the National Food Authority here reminded the grains businessmen in Zamboanga del Norte to renew their licenses on time to avoid surcharge and penalties.

NFA Provincial Manager Julakmad J. Lamawa said those who failed to renew their licenses on time would pay a surcharge fee equivalent to 25 percent of the total license cost and another 25 percent for every month thereafter.

The NFA provincial office has set the following schedule in the renewal of licenses by municipality in the province: January for Dipolog City and Polanco; February for Dapitan City, Rizal, Sibutad and La Libertad; March for Sergio Osmeña, Piñan, Mutia, Katipunan and Roxas; April for Jose Dalman, Manukan, Siayan and Sindangan; May for Godod, Kalawit, Salug and Tampilisan; and June for Baliguian, Gutalac, Labason, Leon Postigo, Liloy, Sibuco,Siocon and Sirawai.

“Aside from this, NFA will also conduct mobile licensing from July to Dec. 2015 to accommodate grains businessmen who failed to renew their licenses during the scheduled months,” Lamawa added.

Lamawa also reminded new grains businessmen to get their NFA licenses at the provincial office bringing with them the following requirements: 2 pieces of 2 x 2 ID pictures, business permit, picture of the store. They are advised to look for Ms. Minvluz R. Pomelda, the licensing officer.
