Fajardo pushes ordinance vs market rental fee in Iloilo town
Sangguniang Bayan member Daniel Fajardo II has proposed an ordinance waiving one month of rental fee of stall holders at the public market of Pavia town in Iloilo province.
His proposal aims to help the vendors cope with the adverse economic effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, according to Fajardo.
“This is a socioeconomic recovery support initiative,” the chairperson of the Committee on Market and Slaughterhouse said. (https://bit.ly/3l3N1NY)
“I’ve seen how the pandemic lockdowns have affected our market vendors,” he added.
Waiving one month of rental fee of the stall holders at the Pavia Public Market could mitigate the losses of the owners and vendors during this Covid-19 pandemic, according to Fajardo.
He also cited Memorandum Circular 20-04 of the Department of Trade and Industry which provides that lessors and owners of business spaces shall share the responsibility of waiving the corresponding rental fee and charges of stores during quarantine periods.
