Stores, markets told: Require exit pass from customers

THE management of commercial establishments such as groceries and supermarkets were asked by Cagayan de Oro City Hall to help avoid overcrowding inside their premises by requiring their customers to present their barangay exit pass.


During the first part of Wednesday morning’s (April 22) press briefing held at the mayor’s conference room lawyer Jose Edgardo Uy said only by requiring exit passes from customers can these essential businesses help the city government regulate the flow of people going out of their homes for non-essential activities and prevent them from loitering in the streets.


Uy, who co-chairs the City Price Coordinating Council together with Mayor Oscar Moreno and is part of the economic cluster of City Hall’s Emergency Operations Center, said they are coordinating with the Department of Agriculture in enforcing the frozen price list on basic goods such as rice.


‘Now the DA required sellers of rice in groceries and supermarkets to adopt a color coding scheme that would identify the types of rice being sold to the public such as well-milled, special and imported rice in order to avoid misleading buyers.


‘We also collaborate with DA through the City Agricultural Productivity Office in implementing the Kadiwa mobile market program in different barangays. Prices of some vegetables, meats and fish are cheaper there by at least P20. Public response is favorable and the mobile markets help buyers avoid the inconvenience of lining up for hours at the city public markets and going home late to avoid the curfew,’ he said.
