THE Iloilo City Government's bids and award committee is waiting for other bids for the project to tow and clamp illegally parked cars.

Only one company, 3L Corp., has entered a bid for the project.

If there are no other bidders, Mayor Jed Patrick Mabilog said he is open to a joint venture project with 3L Corp., but at no cost to the City Government.


The towing and clamping of illegally parked vehicles should have started last February 25, but Mabilog withdrew his signature on the memorandum of agreement after finding out that 3L Corp bid was not reviewed by the BAC and the General Services Office.

If 3L Corp. bags the deal, it will get 70 percent of the fines collected and the city gets 30 percent.

The joint venture partner must have a tow truck stationed in busy streets such as Iznart, JM Basa, Ledesma, Valeria, Quezon, Mabini and Gen. Luna.

Fines for illegal parking are P1,000 for light vehicles, P1,200 for vans and trucks and P1,200 for jeepneys.

The city also approved an amendment to the ordinance that bans parking on sidewalks from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m.
