Samsam opposes floating cottages
Talisay City Mayor Samsam Gullas opposes the operation of floating cottages offshore.
Gullas made the statement after Cebu Governor Gwendolyn Garcia banned swimming within the 33 hectares off Cordova town.
The unregulated fixed and floating cottages were blamed for the area’s seawater contamination. (https://bit.ly/3fkVLzy)
This prompted Gullas to consider prohibiting such cottages from operating in the city’s seawaters.
While these cottages have the potential to boost tourism, the mayor said they must be regulated in order to protect the environment.
The Talisay City Council is now considering the passing of an ordinance to regulate the floating cottages.
