FIFTEEN blocks in three public markets in Bacolod City have been recommended by the City Assessor’s Office for possible closure due to the tenants’ failure to pay their rental dues.

City Administrator Rolando Villamor said on Wendesday that they have issued demand letters to delinquent stall awardees or lessees in the three public markets and Manokan Country.

The collectibles has reached about P50 million.


Villamor said he has recommended to the mayor the closure of five blocks in Burgos Market, five in Central Market, and another five in Libertad Market.

Villamor said the local market committee came out with a list of delinquent stall or block awardees who never paid their monthly rental and furnished them last week a copy of the resolution informing them that their blocks have been cancelled.

The stall occupants of Central Market and Manokan Country have the biggest unpaid rentals with some having individual accounts reaching P400,000, he said.

Occupants of Manokan Country, however, have started to pay their dues after receiving their demand letters, Villamor added.
