The Committee on Peace and Public Order headed by Hon. Eliezer L. Borja immediately acted upon the request of several Cogon Market Vendors to provide more parking space for Cogon Market-Goers. Mr. Louie Gutierrez, representing the Cogon Market Vendors, explained during the committee meeting that current parking spaces within the vicinity of the Cogon Public Market are being occupied by IBEX Workers leaving market-goers with limited parking space hence discouraging them from going to the market. It was agreed during the meeting that an area shall be designated as parking space for market-goers only. Hence, Hon. Borja sponsored Resolution 24-69 which designated a portion of Belderol Street as temporary parking area for users of Cogon Market. The Sangguniang Panlungsod under Section 458 of RA 7169 have the authority to regulate the use of streets, avenues, alleys and other public places and regulate traffic on all streets and bridges within the territorial jurisdiction of city. Hon. Borja also draws basis from Sec. 53 of City Ordinance no. RC-097 or the Market Code of the City which provides for the designation of areas that may be used as parking spaces subject to payment of applicable parking fees should parking facilities extend to more than two hours.
