A proposal to increase the share of the LGU Malay from the Terminal Fee is being forwarded by Town Council Member Welbic Gelito.
Before becoming a Vice Mayor for Malay, Gelito is moving forward the proposal that the share of the LGU from the Terminal Fee being collected by the provincial government from the Caticlan and Cagban Jetty Ports be increased to twenty percent (20 %).
According to Gelito, it is about time that the share given to Malay be increased, since even before, the town had been helping in the improvements made at the Jetty Ports.
Aside from this, the Councilman said that the Governor of Aklan had allegedly said that the collected terminal fee will be given back to Boracay in the form of a project.
Because of the mentioned reasons, the proposal will allegedly be included in the agenda in the next Town Council Session even before the May elections.
Gelito is a current Councilman of Malay who will run for the position of Vice Mayor in the May elections but without an opposition.
