GSIS okays use of property as parking space

BAGUIO CITY December 21 – The State-owned Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) approved the series of requests from the local government for the use of its property along DPS Compound barangay as a temporary parking space for motor vehicles during the holidays from December 20, 2017 to January 6, 2018.

GSIS Acting Property Administration Department Officer Florante O. Lumibao outlined 7 conditions that the local government and the local police force must comply for the use of the GSIS property as a temporary parking space for motor vehicles to ensure the sustained preservation and protection of the vacant lot.

He pointed out that the GSIS property will be made available only for temporary parking space for motor vehicles on the specified dates and that the use of the property for parking purposes will be for free of charge and without any consideration.

Lumibao underscored that GSIS shall not be liable for any complaints, damages and suits that may be filed as a result of the grant to use the property as temporary parking space and upon expiration of the agreed period, the Baguio City Police Office (BCPO) and the local government shall cause the removal of all parked vehicles found in the property and will turnover possession of the same without formal demand from the State insurance corporation.

According to him, damage to the newly erected fence shall be restored to its original state chargeable against the local government and that any extension of time for its continued use must be with prior consent.

The GSIS asserted that the State insurance firm reserves the right to demand the termination of authority and return of the property upon violation of the imposed conditions and in the event of an exigency to protect its interest and the general public.

Earlier, Rep. Mark Go, Mayor Mauricio G. Domogan and Senior Superintendent Ramil L. Saculles of the Baguio City Police Office (BCPO requested the GSIS management to allow the local government to use its vacant lot located along DPS barangay as a temporary parking space for the holidays considering the expected enormous increase in the number of motor vehicles that will flock to the city as visitors will again come back to the Summer Capital to enjoy its cool and unique weather condition.

For the past several years, the GSIS had been approving the request of the local government to use its vacant lot along DPS barangay as a temporary parking space for motor vehicles during the holidays and the conduct of special events in the city considering the expected influx of visitors wanting to spend their vacation in the city for them to escape from the scorching heat in the lowlands.

Mayor Domogan expressed his gratitude to the GSIS management for its sustained support to the local government in finding temporary solutions to the enormous traffic problems of the city during the holidays and special events by allowing their vacant lot along DPS to be used as a temporary parking area for motor vehicles free of charge so that there will be more alternative parking areas that will be offered to visitors when they will be in the city spending their vacation.
