MetadataShow full item record
Members of the Sangguniang Bayan (SB) have differing takes on the proposed increase of the environmental fee for tourists in the world-famous Boracay Island. SB member Maylynn Aguirre-Graf is proposing to increase the fee from P75 to P500, as agreed upon by stakeholders and other local officials in the town. Aguirre-Graf wants the fee hike implemented when Boracay re-opens on Oct. 26. “The proposed increase of environmental fee will also have positive impacts to our economy by creating more job and livelihood opportunities for locals,” she added.
