LGU-Camalig through the Municipal Treasurer’s Office (MTO) led the calibration and inspection of weights at the public market, Brgy. 6, Poblacion, Camalig, Albay.
The activity was conducted to ensure that weighing scales in the market are accurately functioning to avoid erring transactions and promote fair trade between vendors and market-goers.
A total of thirteen (13) weights and measures have been inspected and calibrated – out of the 13, four (4) were found defective and were confiscated immediately.
Aside from calibration and inspection, the MTO also issued special permits to vegetable vendors which will serve as passes to sell goods within designated areas.
