City septage ordinance
BY JUANCHO GALLARDE
The Sangguniang Panlungsod of Dumaguete has approved on second reading an ordinance amending the Dumaguete City Septage Management System ordinance, regarding the payment of the P2 user fee.
The present user fee of P2 per cubic meter, intended for desludging septic tanks of water concessionaires serviced by the Dumaguete City Water District in a given billing period was reduced to P1.50 centavos per cubic meter of water consumed.
Another amendment is for the exemption of water concessionaires from paying the user fee of P1.50 if said concessionaires don't have proper septic tanks, or who use communal septic tanks such as those in the public markets..
