Apple Green Policy

The underpinnings why the passengers tricycles have to be turned apple green is uniformity and tourism. Although it entails additional cost on the part of the tricycle operators, on the other hand it can immediately catch attention of passerbys and strike unique feature, in fact a color signature of the City of the Pines. The color also jibes with the theme of the city’s official logo.

The city legal officer Atty. Roland Tumanda just bared that the city government will also implement the Clean Air Act starting next year, and for the same passenger tricycles, operators have to replace or convert their existing too polluting two-stroke engines to the lesser polluting four-stroke engines.

This again requires costs, expenses for the operators and even the drivers of passenger tricycles. Hence, in this Apple Green Policy of the city government only those who could not comply have their livelihood threatened.

When Ber months come, government budget planning comes in. Maybe a projected budget for a credit facility for the tricycle operators who could not afford for the engine shift can be entertained now, this early, if only to make our city environment-friendly. (Cha Monforte/Rural Urban News)
