THE Zamboanga City Administrator’s Office is eyeing to amend the market code to allow vendors space in market areas to sell their wares.
City Administrator Marie Angelique Go said the proposed amendment will allow vendors time and space at market areas like the Sta. Cruz Commercial and the Bagsakan Centers to peddle their wares and products without compromising market operations.
“Right now, we are in the process of amending our market code. The office is proposing that with this piecemeal amendment, there will be areas, for example at the Bagsakan or the Sta. Cruz, that we will be allowing night markets or areas that we can open up for the other vendors once the market operations has closed down for the day,” Go said.
This, Go added, is one of the measures they are considering to address illegal sidewalk vending in the city. (Bong Garcia/SunStar Philippines)
