Domogan nixes operation of Burnham Park carnival rides
by PIO release

Mayor Mauricio G. Domogan will not sign the city council resolution that allowed a private company to operate and install carnival rides at the Children’s Playground of the Burnham Park.

Domogan said because of previous complaints about the safety of the rides, operation of amusement rides in the city’s premier park is no longer feasible.

During a marathon session on Dec. 28, 2018, the city council passed a resolution endorsing the operation of amusement rides by Linked-In Corporation, the same group that operated amusement rides early last year, but which had been warned several times by the city government for various violations.

Linked-In was allowed to operate from Feb. 1 to May 30.

“We do not want to encounter the same problems when we allowed the operation of the carnival and amusement rides last summer. We will just make do with what the park can offer to the public,” Domogan said.

The operation of the carnival was confronted with various controversies, specifically the safety of the amusement rides and the damage inflicted on the playground, which has yet to be restored.

The City Environment and Parks Management Office said Linked-In was able to restore the damaged pavement but not the damaged grounds at the back portion of the playground.

Under the terms of operation, Linked-In will pay the local government P500,000 rent for its three-month operation, aside from other conditions that will be imposed by the Office of the Mayor.

Domogan said the local government had been at the receiving end of criticisms when the LGU first allowed the operation of a carnival that is why it is best to stop such operations and allow the rejuvenation of the park.

He said the lease that the carnival operator intends to pay to the local government is not sufficient to compensate for whatever damage the park may incur from the carnival’s operation.

He said he will return the unsigned resolution to the city council stating his objection so that the councilors who approved the same might reconsider their position on the matter.
