Sun Star Bacolod - - Top Stories - BY MERLINDA A. PEDROSA

ALL THE fish ven­dors at Balles­teros Street in Ba­colod City will be trans­ferred in­side the Cen­tral Public Mar­ket start­ing Sun­day.

This was stressed by Vice Mayor El Cid Fa­mil­iaran yes­ter­day dur­ing the di­a­logue with the fish ven­dors at Balles­teros Street and Cen­tral Public Mar­ket at the Ba­colod Govern­ment Cen­ter.

Fa­mil­iaran said the fish ven­dors were also co­op­er­a­tive that they will be trans­ferred in­side the Cen­tral Public Mar­ket.

“They were given two days to com­ply all their re­quire­ments so they can trans­fer in­side the Cen­tral Public Mar­ket. They will stay at Balles­teros Street un­til Satur­day,” he said.

He added in Balles­teros Street alone, a to­tal of 95 fish ven­dors will be given space in­side the Cen­tral Public Mar­ket.

Fa­mil­iaran noted that they will pri­or­i­tize the res­i­dents of Ba­colod to oc­cupy a space in­side the public mar­ket.

On Wed­nes­day, about 197 ven­dors at Bur­gos Public Mar­ket al­ready vol­un­tar­ily re­moved their stalls that oc­cu­pied the roads at Daniel Ramos Street and Bur­gos Street.

Fa­mil­iaran said that this is in pur­suant to Mem­o­ran­dum Cir­cu­lar No. 2019-121 dated July 29, 2019 of the De­part­ment of the In­te­rior and Lo­cal Govern­ment (DILG) di­rect­ing the lo­cal govern­ment of­fi­cials from the may­ors down to barangay cap­tains to im­ple­ment the clear­ing of roads.

He said those who will not be ac­com­mo­dated in­side the Cen­tral Public Mar­ket will be trans­ferred to Ven­dor’s Plaza.

He added that they will open again the Ven­dor’s Plaza so they can ac­com­mo­date all the ven­dors so they can con­tinue their liveli­hood.

On Au­gust 11, the city will also hold a di­a­logue with the ven­dors at Lib­er­tad Public Mar­ket and the de­mo­li­tion will start on Au­gust 12 to 14 from the areas of Amelia-mercedes Streets. The ven­dors will be trans­ferred in­side the An­nex Build­ing.*
