Increasing number of commissioners on the island, a dilemma for LGU-Malay and DOT

The Local Government of Malay and the Department of Tourism are having concerns regarding the increasing number of commissioners in the island.

In an interview with DOT Officer-in-Charge Tim Ticar, he said that their department alongside the LGU is now focusing on this matter as it poses as a problem.

The term commissioner refers to an individual who are offering island activities and such to the tourists.

According to Ticar, there are reports of complaints from the visitors on how some of these commissioners would stop them or be in their way and end up being bothersome.

The DOT OIC added, that it would be ok if they won’t come crowding in to cause enough nuisance.

But he also acknowledged those who are properly approaching that guests and are wearing their IDs.

In the meantime, the DOT and LGU-Malay are looking for ways to prevent the commissioners’ growing numbers for them to effectively control and monitor.
