Brgy ordinance regulating peddlers in Indahag up for review
THE 19th City Council headed by Vice Mayor Raineir Joaquin V. Uy is set to review the ordinance of Barangay Indahag that would regulate fish and vegetable peddlers who are non-residents of the barangay.
The Regulation of Fish and Vegetable Peddlers Ordinance of Barangay Indahag seeks to allow fish and vegetable peddlers who are not residents of the barangay on Mondays and Wednesdays only.
Citing peace and order concerns, barangay officials deem it proper to monitor the entry of peddlers from unknown areas.
It was also noted that peddlers sell their goods at a much cheaper price, which is disadvantageous to fish and vegetable vendors paying local fees to the barangay.
The barangay is prioritizing livelihood opportunities of its own residents to boost its local commerce, it was learned.
Under the barangay ordinance, violators will be reprimanded for the first offense and will be meted with a P1,000 penalty for second offense.
For third and final offense, a fine of P1,000 and a written recommendation from the barangay to the City Government and the Land Transportation Office (LTO) shall be imposed for the revocation of their business permits and vehicle registration, respectively.
