• CA affirms tower fees illegal


    The Court of Appeals (CA) declared with finality as null and void an ordinance issued by the local government of Santiago City, Isabela, requiring the payment of tower fees from telcos operating cell sites within the city. In a resolution promulgated December 18, 2014, the former 11th Division of the Court of Appeals, chaired by Associate Justice Vicente Veloso, dismissed the motion for reconsideration filed by the Santiago City government relating to the CA’s earlier decision upholding Globe Telecom’s position that the imposition of tower fees as provided by the city ordinance concerned is without proper basis.
