Sagada partners w/ private inns, homestays in info dissemination
by Ofelia C. Empian

The municipality of Sagada, Mountain Province has partnered with private innkeepers and homestay owners in reminding their guests to strictly follow rules and regulations set within the town.

Sagada Mayor James Pooten Jr. said they have met with the various owners of inns and homestays in the municipality and discussed the rules and regulations in the mystic town.

“We have printed advisories, which were posted in the various inns,” Pooten said.

The posters carry advisories on proper waste disposal, traffic rules, such as leaving their vehicles in designated public or private parking areas and using local transport to ferry them around Sagada, or visit the tourism sites on foot.

Also, inns and homestays operators were encouraged to coordinate with the local government unit by submitting the number of guests they are expecting on a certain date. 

Pooten said they are tapping inn owners and proprietors to be the one to download the information, especially about the traffic regulation in Sagada, to their guests.

Ivy Joy Solang, proprietor of Pinewood Lodge in Sagada, said they are strictly implementing proper waste disposal and recycling.

“As one of the owners of accommodations here in Sagada, we properly share to our guests about the policies of Sagada. Now, it is up to them to follow it or not,” Solang said.

She observed that despite verbal  and posted reminders in their lodge, there are still guests who do not follow instructions. She clarified, however, that most guests respect and follow the rules.

Aside from the accommodations, Solang also offers pay parking in their compound for non-guests in their lodge.

The mayor recently issued Executive Order 37-18 strictly implementing the town’s traffic ordinance to prevent the huge line of traffic dubbed as “carmageddon” last December.

The order bars anyone from parking or obstructing traffic on all major roads, sidewalks and other passages in Sagada from 6 a.m. until 8:30 p.m. 

The ban includes those leaving their vehicles on “hazard” for more than 10 minutes along the road.

The LGU will remove the license plate or will confiscate the driver’s license of those found violating the traffic ordinance and impose a P500 fine.
