City urged to regulate “talipapas”

City council is deliberating a proposed ordinance establishing satellite markets or Talipapa (file photo)


The City Council is deliberating a proposed ordinance establishing satellite markets or “talipapas,” especially in remote barangays in Puerto Princesa City.

Authored by Councilor Roy Ventura, the proposed ordinance sprung from the need to regulate the unauthorized establishment of “talipapas” in the city to ensure the protection and welfare of the consuming public.

“There are many satellite markets established all over the city without prior approval from any granting authority commissioned by the city government,” he said.

Under the proposed policy, it is suggested to only have one satellite market in every barangay. If the barangay opted to establish its own, it must be coordinated with the city government to ensure it fits with the latter’s plan.

Selling street foods like barbeque, and putting up drug and hardware stores, lotto outlet, ready-to-wear and shoe, cellphone, jewelry and watch repairs sections, and restaurants and other kinds of eatery are among the activities prohibited inside the satellite markets.

Violators of the proposed ordinance will face a penalty of P2,000 or stern reprimand and P3,500 or suspension of operation of not more than 90 days for first and second offenses, respectively.

For the third offense, violators will suffer a penalty of P5,000 and cancellation of mayor’s permit or imprisonment of 15 to 30 days or both at the court’s discretion.

Stalls’ owners in existing “talipapas” will be given a 30-day period to self-demolish their structures, prior to the actual operation of the one established under the proposed measure. Valid mayor’s permit issued to any vendor will no longer be renewed when the policy is in full swing.

The City Engineering Office, meanwhile, is tasked to design the structure of the satellite markets equipped with facilities ensuring sanitation. It will consist of fish, shellfish, vegetable, meat and dry goods (limited only to the basic household commodities) sections.

All lessees of the stalls in the “talipapas” are required to secure necessary permits from the barangay and the city government. On one hand, 80% of the proceeds of stalls and market spaces rentals will go to the city government, while 20% will be the share of the concerned barangay.

In compliance with the Philippines’ Sanitation Code, the satellite market site of at least 5,000 square meters, should be located at least 50 meters away from schools, religious institutions, public offices, funeral establishment and other public gathering places, and 25 meters from slaughterhouses and other possible sources of contamination.

It should not also be put up along national highways to ensure public safety and traffic congestion, but likewise be easily accessible to the public and vehicles.

Pursuant to the city’s Revised Revenue Code, the overall management, control and supervision of the “talipapas” is exclusively given to the city government through its appointed market superintendent and supervisor and market committee.
