Mahigit tatlong-daan (300) tricycle drivers ang pumunta sa tanggapan ni City Councilor at Chairman ng Committee on Franchising Asel Agua noong unang araw ng pagkakaloob ng endorsement para sa pagkakaloob ng mga bagong prankisa ng tricycle sa lungsod Nobyembre 19, 2010. Ayon sa City Ordinance No. 5 o ang “An Ordinance Enacting the Code on Tricycle Franchising and Regulation in the City of Calapan,” na nagtatalaga ng pagkakaloob ng mga bagong prangkisa para sa mga tricycle, ang paghingi ng nasabing endorsement lettersa konsehal ay isa lamang sa mga hakbang para mabigyan ng prangkisa ng Business License Office ang mga aplikante. Parte ito ng screening process para pawang mga lehitimong mga Calapeño lamang ang mabigyan ng prankisa. Ayon kay Agua, prayoridad nila na mabigyan ang mga kolorum na mga tricycles na taga lungsod. Bukod sa nasabing endorsement letter kailangan din nilang kumuha ng Barangay Clearance, Police Clearance, Judge Clearance, Voter’s Affidavit, Official Receipt- Certification of Records (ORCR) at Tricycle Inspection Certificate galing sa City Engineering and Public Works Department. Kinakailangan din ang Medical Exam at Certification mula sa TMO upang malaman kung mayroon ba silang nilabag na batas trapiko. Nagkakahalaga ng 5 libong piso ang bagong prangkisa ng tricycle at 800 piso naman ang renewal. Magkakaroon naman ng pagpupulong ang City Tricycle Franchising and Regulatory Board na pinamumunuan ni City Mayor Doy Leachon bilang chairman para mas salain at tingnan kung sino sa mga aplikante ang karapat-dapat na mabigyan ng mga bagong prankisa. Inaasahan na sa pamamagitan nito, mababawasan na ang bilang ng mga kolorum natricycle na bumabyahe sa lungsod at maiiwasan na ang iligal na bentahan ng prangkisa

An ordinance that governs, regulates tourism development and promotion programs including the accreditation and supervision of the operations of tourism-related establishments and services in the province was finally approved by the Sangguniang Panlalawigan (SP). On its third and final reading the Provincial Ordinance C-003-2008, known as the Tourism Code of Bohol was finally approved. The approval was after a yearlong series of consultations with stakeholders in the tourism industry, according to Provincial Board Member Corazon Galbreath, chairperson of the SP committee on tourism. Under the ordinance, tourism is acknowledged as “the main economic driver” in the province that can provide more jobs and increase the financial resources of the provincial government. Sponsored and authored by Board Member Galbreath, the Tourism Code sets penalties for tourism-related establishments that do not comply with standards for accreditation of the Department of Tourism and the World Tourism Organization. The measure also provides tax incentives to investors and the ease to secure permits and licenses to operate.
