Councilor Rey Lawrence K. Tan
A public hearing will be held by the Committee on Transportation of the Sangguniang Bayan of Mahinog on a proposed motorela fare increase filed by the Mahinog Motorela Operators and Drivers Association (MMODA).
The committee is chaired by Councilor Rey Lawrence K. Tan.
In their petition, the petitioner MMODA alleged:
The price of petroleum products continue to increase.
The existing fare rate/matrix was approved in 2008 when the premium gasoline was still P45.00 per liter.
Today the price of premium gasoline is P61.00 per liter more or less.
The continuing increase of oil price greatly affects the income of drivers and can no longer suffice their family's needs.
This public hearing will be held on Wednesday, April 13, 2011 which will begin at 9:00 am at the Sangguniang Bayan session hall.
According to Tan, all interested persons are invited to attend this hearing and provide written and/or oral comments and ask questions concerning the fare increase.
