Samal Island Implements Environmental User Fee {6}

Samal Island has begun charging tourists an Environmental User Fee (EUF) effective April 1, 2010. This will only apply to non-residents visiting the island, including those there availing of the many adventures offered.

Samal LGU Agrees to EUF MOA {0}

The controversial and widely unpopular EUF (Environmental Users’ Fee) will continue on the Island Garden City of Samal, with a newly adopted MOA (Memorandum of Agreement) between the local government and various civic groups.

The main purpose of the MOA seems to be to monitor the EUF to insure that the funds are collected correctly and are in fact used for the purpose intended.
