Revenue hike from market fees
by PIA–Kalinga

TABUK CITY, Kalinga – The city government generated P4.33 million in revenue from collection of market fees and stall rentals at the Dagupan public market and  public gym from January to Nov. 20 this year.

Mayor Ferdinand B. Tubban attributed this to the improved market policy and more aggressive collection efforts.

Bulk of the collection came from stall rentals, which amount to P2.984M, ticket fees amounting to P1.337M, and P15,000 from weighing scale calibration fees.

The city government had imposed stiff regulation on stall rental collection because of reported high delinquency in rental payments by occupant-vendors.

Management and supervision of the public market operation has leveled up because of the ongoing efforts of the city government to improve the facility.

Tubban said good market fee collection will translate to better maintenance, regular garbage services, and improved security. The city government had installed CCTV cameras at the area as part of its crime prevention efforts.   

In a related report, vendors at the city public market were asked to support the city’s “No plastic use” drive by using biodegradable bags when shopping.

The “No plastic use” policy is pursuant to Memorandum Order 158 s. 2017 issued by Tubban in September.

Under the policy, every Monday, no store, vendor or commercial establishment shall use or place merchandise or any item in plastic bags. Consumers are encouraged to bring their own baskets and bags.

The order was issued to create awareness among business operators and residents on the city government’s support to the Ecological Solid Waste Management Act which bans use of non-biodegradable materials.
