La Trinidad Mayor Romeo Salda said he will implement the law no matter a person’s status.
The Benguet politiko recently issued a cease and desist order against the operator of a trade fair in a private property along Kilometer 5.
The Municipal Engineering Department earlier assessed that the area where the trade fair was located was unstable.
Moreover, the vendors selling in the trade fair did not secure any business permit.
“We would just like to state that we were just implementing the prevailing rules and regulations governing the put up of structures and the conduct of business activities in the municipality. We will apply the same to everyone regardless of their status in the society,” Salda said.
“We are grateful to the trade fair organizer for her compliance to the two orders that were issued against her,” he added.
