Jamaica Gleaner - - OPINION & COMMENTARY -

THE EDI­TOR, Sir:

KINGSTON MAYOR Del­roy Williams, please have the over­size truck that has set up a mar­ket on the side­walk in front of peo­ple’s homes and the side door of Shop­pers Fair Su­per­mar­ket on Fort Nu­gent Drive re­moved, be­cause it oc­cu­pies a large por­tion of the side­walk and pedes­tri­ans are forced to walk on the busy street.

Ta­bles/stalls are lined out with ripe ba­nanas, pa­paya, bread­fruit, co­conut wa­ter, etc, while chairs are pro­vided for cus­tomers wait­ing for their pine and cane to be peeled. The mar­ket is ex­tremely ac­tive, so cars are parked on both sides of the street be­side a JUTC bus stop, caus­ing traf­fic con­ges­tion.

Let­ters and tele­phone calls to the Kingston and St An­drew Mu­nic­i­pal Cor­po­ra­tion, since last sum­mer, have not helped.

Have the truck, jerk man and other ven­dors move to an­other lo­ca­tion be­fore the hol­i­days, be­cause it was aw­ful last year. This is not a mar­ket zone. Hope­fully Mem­ber of Par­lia­ment Juliet Hol­ness and Coun­cil­lor Oliver Clue will also help us.
