The city government’s Tricycle Adjudication Board is accepting until end of this month (May 31) only the renewal of franchises for the operation of tricycles within the territorial jurisdiction of Zamboanga City.

City Legal Officer and TAB Chairman Atty. Jesus C. Carbon Jr. announced this Monday, citing Resolution No. 518 dated May 5, 2015 of the Sangguniang Panlungsod (City Council)that set May 31, 2015 as the cutoff period for the renewal of tricycle franchises.

To recall, the Sangguniang Panlungsod adopted Resolution No. 1145 on September 30, 2014, authorizing the TAB thru its chairman, Atty. Carbon, and Councilor Luis R. Biel III as chairman of the Committee on Franchise of the August Body, to accept and renew tricycle franchises, including those franchises issued as of 2002, provided they are valid.

However, the said SP resolution inadvertently missed out the cutoff date for the renewal of tricycle franchises. Hence, Resolution No. 518 was passed, reiterating Resolution 1145 and amending the same with the cutoff date of May 31, 2015 for tricycle franchise renewal.

Copies of the resolution were furnished through the chief executive to Atty. Carbon and Councilor Biel for appropriate action.— Vic Larato
