Benguet, city execs confident on settling truck ban concerns
by Liza T. Agoot/PNA

Benguet and Baguio City officials are confident of being able to peacefully settle the conflict created by the city’s truck ban ordinance that has affected the vegetable industry in the province.

Benguet Provincial Administrator Noel Ngolob on Tuesday said he sees no need for the national government’s intervention on the issue.

Officials of the provincial government and La Trinidad municipal government have relayed their request for the city government to exempt vegetable truckers from the ordinance, which prohibits vehicles weighing 4,500 kilograms and above from using the city’s roads from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. and from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Vegetable farmers and companies transporting important commodities asked city officials for exemption.

Ngalob said Benguet is the source of about 80 percent of the country’s temperate vegetables, which are perishable and need to arrive to their destination on time.

Benguet has requested for the exemption while the city has yet to act on the proposed amendment to the ordinance.

On Monday, the city council did not tackle the request as planned.

Councilor Joel Alangsab said the amendatory ordinance was not included in the agenda, but the committee concerned has already written Mayor Mauricio Domogan informing him that they are willing to re-impose the mayor’s administrative order exempting some sectors from the truck ban pending the final approval of the amendatory ordinance.

Domogan earlier issued the order as a remedial measure following the plea of some sectors for exemption.
