BA­COLOD City Ad­min­is­tra­tor John Orola said yes­ter­day the flower ven­dors at the pub­lic plaza can start trans­fer­ring to their new lo­ca­tion, be­hind the Ba­colod Arts and Youth Sports (Bays) Cen­ter.

Orola said the City En­gi­neer’s Of­fice al­ready fin­ished the con­struc­tion of some stalls of the flower ven­dors in the area.

“We agreed that af­ter the All Saints and All Souls Days, the flower ven­dors will trans­fer to the new site, it is now ready to be oc­cu­pied,” he said.

The flower ven­dors are oc­cu­py­ing 18 stalls at the plaza, and they are giv­ing do­na­tions to the Ba­colod Dio­cese, which owns the por­tion of pub­lic plaza oc­cu­pied by the ven­dors, at P50 per day.

Orola said they are now fa­cil­i­tat­ing the power sup­ply at the des­ig­nated site.

“We will set the in­au­gu­ra­tion of the new site as well as the in­for­ma­tion cen­ter near the area,” he said.

Once they trans­ferred to the des­ig­nated site, Orola added that the city will also start the re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion at the pub­lic plaza.*
