Committee to hear plea for moratorium on issuance of "motorela" franchise

UNIQUE DESIGN: This type of motorela with two-forward facing seats is found in Mahinog , Camiguin. Motorela, which came from the word “motorcycle” and “caretella,” is a motorcycle fitted with a two wheel cab operated to render transport services to the general public for fee. It can accommodate up to eight passengers.


Notice is hereby given that on October 18, 2010, the Mahinog Motorela Operators and Drivers Association (MMODA), filed with the Sangguniang Bayan of Mahinog resolution no. 1 entitled:

“A resolution requesting the Honorable Members of the Sangguniang Bayan of Mahinog, Camiguin to suspend the issuance of franchise to new motorela applicant for the period of three (3) years effective January 2011”

In the said resolution, MMODA alleged, among others, the following:

1. The members of the association firmly believed that the number of motorela units currently operating are sufficient enough to serve the riding public;

2. Aside from motorela operation there are other type of public vehicle that operate within the franchise area like jeepneys, multicabs and habal-habal.

The Committee on Transportation chaired by Hon. Rey Lawrence K. Tan has set the above resolution for public hearing on the following schedule:

December 1, 2010 Wednesday at 9:00 A.M. to 12:00 P.M. at SB Session Hall.

Any person who may be adversely affected by the above proposed measure may file a written petition at least three (3) days prior to the hearing stating (1) the petitioner’s name and address; (2) the nature of the petitioner’s interest in the subject matter of the proceeding, and the way and the manner in which such interest is affected by the issues involved in the proceedings; and (3) statement of the relief desired.

All other persons who may want their views known to the Committee with respect to the subject matter are invited to attend the public hearing on the above scheduled date and comment thereon at any stage of the proceeding pursuant to the rules of the Sangguniang Bayan.

Done this 23rd day of November, 2010.

Municipal Vice Mayor
Presiding Officer
