Iloilo market collection up 69 percent

ILOILO City’s market collection report for two weeks has posted a percentage increase of 68.8 percent covering the period July 16 to 30, 2019.

From July 16-22, total collection has reached P758,703, while the week of July 23-30 posted P1,281,310.62, or a difference of P522,607.62.

Mayor Jerry Treñas said the increase is due to the intensified efforts of market supervisors to collect necessary fees in city public markets, slaughterhouse and bus terminal.

“I have ordered market supervisors to be diligent in their work, otherwise they will be removed from their present posts and re-assigned to other offices,” he said.

He expressed satisfaction that the city’s collection efficiency is doing well under his watch.

The mayor also eyes efficient collection standards in the slaughterhouses, and bus terminals as the city gears for level-up business approaches within the year. (PR)
