Marikina Law: Manufacturing and Selling Firecrackers in Marikina is prohibited


The City Government of Marikina prohibits any person and/or individual to manufacture and sell firecrackers or pyrotechnic devices and such other similar devices and explosives within the territorial jurisdiction of the city.

marikina ordinance 08027The ordinance was approved by the SANGGUNIANG PANLUNGSOD ofMARIKINA on February 22, 2008.

It provides the following penalty:

A fine of Five Thousand Pesos (P5,000.00) be imposed by the City Government of Marikina on the violator of this ordinance, without prejudice to the filing of a case in an appropriate Court. At the discretion of the Court, the violator may be imposed the penalty of imprisonment.

However, this ordinance is not being implemented. I have not seen any ordinance or court ruling nullifying this ordinance. Then I heard the city council recently passed an ordinance designating Firecracker zones here in Marikina. I’m still searching for a copy of the ordinance.

You can download a copy of the Ordinance here.
