Dad proposes charging of fees for use of roads, public places
by PIO release

The city will be charging an environmental fee for the use of roads and other public places for commercial and other purposes.

Councilor Elaine D. Sembrano proposed an ordinance that sought to collect environmental fee from the conduct of trade fairs, market encounters, motor or car shows, animal shows, beer fests, carnival operations, concerts, company promotional events, sales caravan, airsoft games, and other similar events on roads, streets, alleys, parks, or other public places.

The ordinance, which was passed on first reading, requires the event organizers, operator, or company to pay the fee prior to the conduct of their event.

The ordinance stipulated that the environmental fee shall be apart from the garbage fee collected pursuant to Section 97 of Ordinance 18, s. 2016 or the City Environment Code.

Under the proposed ordinance, trade fairs, market encounters, and baratilyos shall be charged an environmental fee of one percent of the rent or lease of space but not less than P150 per day.

Animal shows shall be charged two percent of the entry fee per day but not less than P500 per day while car or motor shows shall be charged P500 per car per day.

Beer fests shall be charged two percent of the ticket sales; carnivals shall be charged P1,000 per ride or amusement facility per day; and concerts shall be charged two percent of the ticket sales.

Political rallies shall be charged P10,000 per day; school events and religious gatherings shall be charged P2,000 per day plus P150 per booth per day; company promotional events or sales caravan shall be charged P10,000 per day plus P500 per booth per day; and airsoft games and other sports events shall be charged P5,000 per day.

All collections shall accrue to the city’s general fund and may form part of the fund for health and sanitation services and environmental protection purposes.

The measure however said that activities organized by the city government shall be exempted from paying the environmental fee.

Events that are transitory in nature such as street parades, motorcades, fun runs, marathon or the like are also exempted provided that the activities are issued permits and clearances from concerned city government offices and the closure of roads and other public places does not exceed two hours.

For the assessment of the fees to be charged, the event organizer, operator, or company shall submit or attach to the application or request for the closure of roads and other public places an event cost or financial plan to include the list of activities, participants, the physical layout plan, the number of tickets intended to be sold, and equipment and vehicles to be used, to the local legislative body and the City Treasury Office.
