• Folk ask for salaries for traffic aides


    SAGADA, MOUNTAIN PROVINCE: Petitioners based in Sagada and overseas asked the Sangguniang Bayan to allocate some amount from environmental fees for wages of traffic aides. Environmental fees costing thirty-five pesos per tourist entering Sagada is collected by the local government unit as general fund. The Revised Tourism Code of 2007 provides that 50 percent of the amount be spent for tourism purposes. The effective deployment of traffic aides was observed resulting in the successful Holy Week traffic operations in 2014 and 2015 when tourist arrival peaked.
