Bicol Saro party-list Rep. Brian Raymund Yamsuan has pushed for the passage of a bill that would require local government units (LGUs) to meet at least twice a year with homeowners’ associations (HOAs) within their jurisdiction to ensure a regular line of communication between them on issues of mutual concern.

Yamsuan said House Bill (HB) 10386 aims to enhance the access of homeowners to their respective LGUs and improve the delivery of services to the people on the ground. 

“Our LGUs and HOAs can be effective partners in addressing pressing matters affecting local communities. Establishing a structured mechanism for communication between them would enhance this partnership and ensure that the voices of homeowners are heard on issues affecting them,” Yamsuan said. 

“Also, HOAs interact directly with the people in their community and, thus, have first-hand knowledge of what’s happening at the grassroots level. They are an untapped resource when it comes to assisting LGUs in effectively implementing programs and projects and in delivering essential services to the people,” he added. 

Yamsuan, a former assistant secretary of the Department of the Interior and Local Government, filed the bill after meeting with the different HOAs in his home city of Parañaque.
