Bike operators told to remove cooking & sleeping quarters
by Jessa Mardy P. Samidan / PIO

The city government of Baguio issued a stern warning to the bike concessionaires at Burnham Park after receiving a report that some of the sheds have been turned into sleeping quarters with cooking activities.

The City Environment and Parks Management Office monitored majority of the 17 adult bike concessionaires at Burnham Park have put up temporary wall coverings on their sheds using galvanized iron, tarpaulin, and other materials to hide their sleeping nooks and electrical cooking appliances.

The Environment Code of Baguio prohibits “unauthorized sleeping or camping at night or otherwise taking up residence” to any safeguarded landscapes including Burnham Park.

Cepmo head Ruben Cervantes said putting up of sleeping facilities, kitchen, and wash area within the sheds of bike concessionaires is in violation of their contract of lease with the city government.

“Since the stalls are covered, the workers are free to install television sets and have Karaoke or sing-along, have their drinking spree inside the sheds, smoke inside the sheds which is a clear circumvention of the Comprehensive Anti-Smoking Ordinance, gamble, and conduct other non-conforming activities,” Cervantes stated in his report.

He added that a look at the site from the Children’s Park area presents a shanty-like picture of the city’s prime park.

In response to the report, Mayor Mauricio Domogan issued Memorandum 163 s. 2019 directing Cepmo to demolish the temporary walls from the sheds of the bike concessionaires immediately.

Domogan also ordered the revocation of the concessionaires’ special business permit if they refuse to remove the materials that serve as covers for their sheds to hide banned activities.
