BAN ON AMBULANT VENDORS PROPOSED IN MANDAUE

The Mandaue City Council is deliberating on a proposed ordinance that would ban ambulant vendors from city streets.

Councilor Jimmy Lumapas proposed the “Anti-mobile Vending Ordinance of 2013” yesterday.

If approved, the ordinance would ban businesses selling goods using multicabs, tricycles and other moving vehicles in the city.

Lumapas said that because these vendors are very mobile, the city government has a hard time collecting taxes from them.

They also clog parking spaces and cause traffic congestion, he said.
