City markets suffer from low revenues

By: Louine Hope Conserva

INCREASING the revenues of public markets is one of the major challenges being faced by the new head of the Iloilo City Local Economic Enterprise Office (LEEO).

LEEO chief Ariel Castañeda told The Daily Guardian On Air last Saturday that revenues from the seven public markets in Iloilo City are not enough for maintenance and operations.

The LEEO aims to earn P72 million this year. Based on the partial report from the City Treasurer’s Office, the agency has already earned P21 million as of April 21.

“There are a lot of things to settle. We are looking at the resources, how they were aligned and how we can streamline them for our priority,” Castañeda said.

The deficit rooted from the series of anomalies bugging the public markers particularly the issue on “tuklo” or thieves.

The LEEO manages seven public markets – LaPaz Public Market, Mandurriao Public Market, Arevalo Public Market, Jaro Big Market, Jaro Public Market, Iloilo Terminal Market and Iloilo Central Market.

Under the new system, applicants are required to utilize the on-line system to request the Napolcom regional offices for their schedule on the filing of examination application after which they will personally appear only at the date assigned to them, with their printed on-line confirmation letter and other required documents.

The period for on-line scheduling is on February 1 to 13, while February 14 to March 16 is set for the filing of application.

Applicants for the PNP Entrance Exam are required to bring the printed letter-reply confirming the scheduled appointment, duly accomplished form (Napolcom Form 1-A) and Index card provided by the office, three recent and identical 1”x1” colored ID pictures with white background and with complete name tag, examination fee of P400, one legal-sized window envelope with P12 worth of mailing stamps, applicant’s transcript of scholastic records or diploma, and authenticated birth certificate.
