He said the ven­dors paid P200 for the spe­cial per­mit and an­other P200 for the garbage fees, adding they are still ac­cept­ing ap­pli­cants for a spe­cial per­mit.

Pineda noted they also re­quired the kiosks along Bur­gos pub­lic mar­ket to se­cure a spe­cial per­mit to sell can­dles among oth­ers.
