Barangay Pinsao Pilot designates area for pay parking

The city council will resume its meeting tomorrow, April 16, after a three-week break.

The staging of a ballet concert scheduled from 1 to 6 p.m. today at the Malcolm Square will push through as per Resolution 91, s. 2018, which was approved by the body during its March 19 session.

Event organizer Edwin Vicente, who is an affiliate member of the Australian Teachers of Dancing, Ltd. and the resident ballet instructor of Naima Wahid Ballet Tutorial based in San Fernando City, La Union, said they have been training and sending students to different countries for ballet examinations and have staged ballet concerts all over the country.

They are endeavoring this time to showcase the talents of the first batch of his students from public and private schools of La Trinidad and La Union to the people of Baguio City through a free short story ballet performance featuring “The Periwinkle and the Princess in the Tower.”

The resolution permitted the group to perform at the Malcolm Square for free to promote theatrical art and as an added activity in the “Summer in Baguio” event; the General Services Office will provide chairs for the audience; and the City Buildings and Architecture Office will install the stage backdrop.

The organizer shall pay the water and electricity consumption, including the garbage hauling and tipping fee of P1,200.

The body approved in separate ordinances the recommendations of the committee on public works, chaired by Coun. Faustino Olowan, for the realignment of funds to a certain project in the barangay and another one at the City Public Market.

In Ordinance 37, s. 2018, a savings of P8 million from the P20M fund in the construction of Rillera Building under the 2014 supplemental annual budget was realigned to the project, “Installation of a roof between Rillera Building and Block 3, between Blocks 3 and Block 4, and between Block 4 and Tobacco section and Second Hand Proper section” at the city market.

The other realignment in Ordinance 40, s. 2018 is the P1M from the “Continuation of the main drainage canal and creek lining” under the 2017 annual investment plan to the project, “Completion of multi-purpose covered court” at Santo Rosario Valley barangay.

Based on the recommendation of the committee on barangay affairs chaired by Coun. Michael Lawana, the body granted a favorable review to Ordinance 02, s. 2018 of Pinsao Pilot Project barangay “designating the road level floor of the barangay multipurpose building at Purok 7 as barangay pay parking area for private light motor vehicles only.”

A P25 parking fee for the first two hours or its fraction and P10 for each additional hour or its fraction shall be collected by parking attendants hired by the barangay.

For parking from 6 p.m. to 7 a.m. the following day, P35 shall be collected and P10 for each additional or succeeding hour.

The drivers are required to surrender their driver’s license or any valid government identification card to the parking attendant or any authorized person by the barangay and claim the same after paying the parking fee.

Since the area is for light private vehicles only, public utility vehicles and heavy vehicles like trucks, buses, haulers and trailers shall provide their own private parking areas or garages as required by law.

Taxi units, passenger jeepneys, and garage vans of guests may be allowed to park during emergencies and occasions such as weddings, birthdays, and wakes only but not exceeding 24 hours.

The ordinance prohibits repair and carwash activities in the pay parking area and warns vehicle owners not to leave personal or valuable belongings inside their parked vehicles, as the barangay will not be responsible in case of any loss.
