NEWS: Tagum flexi-fare ordinance not yet at SP

nov 18

The known flexi-fare ordinance of Tagum City Hall has not yet landed at the hall of the Davao del Norte Sangguniang Panlalawigan as of yesterday.

Boardmember Larry Caminero said in text message that the legislation is not yet at level of the SP, which had its session yesterday afternoon.

SP secretary Dennis Dean Castillo confirmed that as of 5:00 PM yesterday he had not yet received the city’s flexi-fare ordinance.

The ordinance was approved in last week’s session of the city council.

The measure was enacted due to decreases of gasoline prices.

Earlier, Mayor Rey Uy asked for patience of commuting public in the city to wait for the eventual  approval of the ordinance amid calls for decrease of tricycle fare.

The ordinance has brackets of tricycle fares that would either increase or decrease depending on the current pump prices of gasoline.

Under the ordinance, the City Land Transportation and Franchising Regulatory Board is the one which will call for fare increase or fare decrease from time to time.

The mayor himself reportedly pegged the price brackets in the ordinance drafted by City Legal Officer Atty. Roland Tumanda a week after the ordinance on fare increase from P7 to P10 effected last September 19. (Cha Monforte/Rural Urban News)
