Capitol appeals to Pala-Pala occupants to temporarily vacate area

ACTING Provincial Administrator Lucille Gelvolea is asking about 50 occupants of Pala-Pala to temporarily vacate the area to give way to the completion of the construction of the new building.

Gelvolea said the Capitol targets the Pala-Pala Food Terminal to be completed in October and that the completion of the building has been delayed because of the presence of the food vendors.

She said the present vendors at Pala-Pala will be given priority in the new building, which will be transformed into a Food Terminal.

"Provided they should abide by the policy set by the province," Gelvolea said.

The vendors are asking the Bacolod City Government that they will be allowed to temporarily continue with their business using the Banago Road until December 2018, when the new building will be finished and that they are still waiting for the approval of the City.

"There is a group helping them that they can temporarily do business at the sidewalk of Banago Street," Gelvolea said.

She said they will be meeting with all the tenants and stakeholders of Pala-Pala because its rentals will definitely be higher because of better facilities that will be provided by the provincial government.

For now, there are about 50 stalls at the Pala-Pala and with the completion of complex, there will be spaces for dry goods, groceries, storage area, organic trading post, bagsakan of seafood, meeting rooms and conference room that can accommodate 300 participants.

"Because it is an enterprise, the province will have to recover for its cost," Gelvolea said.

She also said they will ask the Provincial Board to pass an ordinance for the regulations and guidelines for the new Pala-Pala food terminal.
