Baguio City Mayor Mauricio Domogan said institutionalizing the Panagbenga Flower Festival will solve many of the event’s problems.
The Baguio politiko lamented how the festival is perennially beset by squabbles regarding its income.
Domogan said local legislation will pave way for a clear definition of the roles of each stakeholder.
The flower festival was almost cancelled a few years ago following conflicts between city officials and the organizers.
“It is always easier said than done,” he said.
