Director- Legal Service
DILG Central Office
Dear Dir. Doque,
This level was sought for an opinion regarding the invalidity of some portions of Revised Revenue Code of San Simon, Pampanga, particularly, Sec. 3U.01 and Sec. 3U.02, as declared by Regional Trial Court, Third Judicial Region, Branch 54, Macabebe, Pampanga, in Civil Case No. 10-1572(M).
We rendered an opinion regarding said matter, hereunto attached for further comment and recommendation by your level.
Aside from the said query, said LGU seeks enlightenment on the merit of collecting fees from haulers and truckers which are actually doing business in their municipality and not merely passing thru their roads or streets.
In our conversation, said LGU seeks guidance whether or not they may impose fees or charges to those truckers or haulers, whose main office/s are not within the jurisdiction of San Simon, but are hauling and unloading goods within their municipality.
We are hoping for your opinion for our guidance.
Our warmest regards and thanks.
Very truly yours,
FLORIDA M. DIJAN, DPA, CESO IV
