Pastor, chairman of the committee on public market and slaughterhouse of SB Naval in a public hearing conducted on Feb. 22 at the Naval Gymnasium.
“This public market code pertains to the establishment, classification, administration and operation and the imposition and collection of rental fees for occupancy or use therein,” Pastor explained, noting that the first market code of the capital town will surely redound to economic benefits as well as restore orderliness in said public utility.
He added that the general objectives of this code are to make the public market responsive and effective instrument of public service and to encourage healthy competition.
