THE Bacolod City Government has scheduled the demolition of illegal market stalls at the downtown area and the three main public markets in the city on January 2.

Senior Superintendent Edgardo Ordaniel, acting director of Bacolod City Police Office, said Friday that this was agreed during the meeting with Mayor Monico Puentevella and the members of the Task Force Maninlo Kita para sa Kaayohan that sought to address the problem of illegal vendors.

Ordaniel said that before the demolition will proceed, they will conduct a dialogue with the affected vendors at the downtown area and at the Central Market, Burgos North Market and Libertad South Market.

He said the vendors will be given 10 days to vacate the area, and if they failed to do so, the police will enforce the order of the city mayor.

Ordaniel said the program aims to clean the downtown area and the public markets of obstructions.

The illegal vendors also cause traffic congestion and are bad for the image of Bacolod City, he added. (MAP)
