Chicken dung trade resumes in LT despite closure order
by Ofelia C. Empian

STANDING THEIR GROUND -- Traders of chicken dung in La Trinidad, Benguet continue with their operation despite issuance of a closure order by the Office of the Mayor. Here, personnel of the LGU were about to install metal barriers to prevent trading in the area but the traders stood their ground. In the end, the LGU put up yellow lines in the area, which was eventually removed by the traders stating the area where they operate in is within the adjacent Tublay town. -- Ofelia Empian

Even with the issuance of a closure order, a chicken dung dealer in Barangay Shilan, La Trinidad, Benguet continues to sell products in the area and destroyed the barricades installed by the municipal government on June 5.

Mayor Romeo Salda said they are still discussing the possible actions the municipal government will initiate against the trader.

The mayor issued a closure order on May 29 to Nora Lagadeo and other chicken dung traders who were found to be selling their products within the municipality. 

The chicken dung dealers, particularly Lagadeo, appealed to the mayor and they were given time to voluntary stop their  operations in the area.

During the recent monitoring and enforcement of the closure order by the Business and Licensing Division of the municipality together with the police and barangay officials of Shilan, Lagadeo was found continuing trading in the area.

The municipal personnel installed yellow lines at the entrance of her trading site, but the same were destroyed by the traders after personnel from the municipal office and police left the area.

This prompted the municipal personnel to install, the next day, metal barriers at the entrance of the area. However, a 10-wheeler truck was seen to have blocked the entrance and the traders argued with the municipal staff.

The latter opted to put up yellow lines at the entrance of the area, which the traders eventually removed.

“We are not singling you out. The sale, disposal and storage of chicken dung within La Trinidad is prohibited,” the mayor said in his letter reply to the trader’s letter questioning the issuance of the closure order.

Administrative Order 008-2010 declared chicken dung as a public nuisance and prohibits the sale, storage, and disposal of chicken dung in the municipality.

Lagadeo said that the area where they are operating is not within La Trinidad but falls within  Tublay.

But the mayor said the area is “within the territorial jurisdiction of La Trinidad” as TCT T-41203, which the traders claim to be renting, is within La Trinidad.

“Nonetheless, even if we subscribe to your allegation that the area is within the ‘disputed boundaries of La Trinidad and Tublay,’ this would not warrant you to sell, dispose, and store chicken dung in a ‘disputed area’ where La Trinidad has been exercising jurisdiction,” Salda said in this letter to the traders.
