First offenders will be meted P200.00 as penalty; P500.00 for the second offense; and a 72-hour community service for third offenders.

The city is also maintaining weighing scales in strategic areas of the Malimgas Public Market and Makong Market.

Two in the Makong area while is one is positioned at the entrance of the Malimgas Public Market.

The Task Force Anti-Littering already confiscated 30 tampered weighing scales in its continuing campaign against cheating vendors.
