LT to regulate mushrooming trading areas
by Ofelia C. Empian

With the proliferation of various private vegetable trading centers in the capital town of Benguet, the municipal government of La Trinidad will soon regulate these business establishments. 

Mayor Romeo Salda acknowledged there is a need to regulate these private vegetable-trading areas that have mushroomed in the municipality over the years.

He said most of the privately owned trading centers lack the facilities needed to cater to their clients.

“Their lack of facilities becomes a problem to the municipality,” the mayor said.

He added that many unregulated trading centers contribute to traffic and waste problems, especially those that lack comfort rooms and proper waste disposal areas.

He cited that prior to the creation of the La Trinidad Vegetable Trading Post, many vegetable traders ply just about anywhere in the municipality until trading was fully regulated during LTVTP’s launching in 1989.

Records of the municipal licensing office show there are about 699 individual vegetable dealers that applied for permit as of February. Bulk of the dealers are located in the trading post with 517 dealers, 107 dealers outside of trading post, 13 dealers at the Benguet Agri-Pinoy Trading Center, 62 at the Bahingawan compound, and 35 dealers in various booths.  

Among the private trading areas that are operating aside from the LTVTP and BAPTC are the Farmer’s Center in Puguis, Merryland in Km. 6, the backfill area adjacent to the old public market site, and the Bahingawan compound.

Secretary to the Sangguniang Bayan Teddy Walang said that as of the moment, they are not able to regulate these private trading centers due to the lack of an ordinance.

Salda said the Trading Post Management Committee will be forwarding its recommendation to the municipal council.
