City to go after dubious transactions at market-A A +A
Friday, July 18, 2014
ILOILO City Mayor Jed Patrick Mabilog has vowed to file charges against people who have anomalous transactions at the city central market.
Mabilog said he will not hesitate to file the charges against City Hall employees, including employees of the Local Economic Enterprise Office (LEEO), and other private persons found to have committed violation of the law and the local government code, specifically on public market operation.
He said the Market Committee will continue submitting a report every last week of the month and until such time the market construction starts.
The report will become the basis for filing of charges against people who committed violations.
Mabilog is set to hold a second public hearing with the central market vendors and stallholders on Monday, July 21, to discuss market rehabilitation and reconstruction.
The city mayor said the City Government will still be the one to run and manage the ground floor area for the legitimate vendors and stallholder while a private bidder will manage the second up to the fifth floors of the redeveloped and revitalized central market.
