BAGUIO City Mayor Mauricio Domogan urged vendors to observe cleanliness after leaving their assigned areas.

There are reports Blocks 1 and 8, particularly the food area, are left uncleaned and untidy after vending hours.

Despite constant reminder to vendors to maintain and sustain the cleanliness of the city, there are still willful vendors who do not comply with the regulations of the city.

During the meeting of the Baguio City Market Authority (BCMA) with leaders of the association of vendors, City Administrator, lawyer Carlos Canilao stressed the city will implement appropriate sanctions to violators of the regulations and subsequently suspend them in selling their products.

"The city is helping you (vendors) in your livelihood but you should also cooperate in maintaining the cleanliness of the city. Let us work together in improving our beloved city," Domogan said.

On the other hand, the BCMA will strictly implement the deadline of payment for walk in vendors at the night market located at Harrison Road.

The mayor also warned vendors sub-leasing their respective stalls in Blocks 3 and 4.

Domogan added he has sent a memorandum to the Treasurer’s Office to list all vendors awarded with stalls and also the names of those who were allotted spaces. The city will be monitoring the said vendors.

"Violators of the rules and regulations of the city will no longer be allowed to sell and their stall rights will be awarded to other interested vendors," said the mayor. (Jho Arranz)
