The Night Market Team, led by Clenro overseer and former City Councilor Eric Salcedo, who represented City Mayor Rolando "Klarex" Uy, conducted a surprise inspection along the Cogon Market area Tuesday night, November 22, 2022.
Last night's inspection aims to check on the sidewalk vendors' compliance with the city mayor's order that temporarily prohibits them from selling their products along the Cogon Market area for two days, November 22 and 23 in preparation for their transfer on Friday.
The said two days were allotted for the orientation and raffling of spaces for the profiled ambulant vendors at the Barangay 40 covered court.
The said orientation will let the vendors know their new location for vending while the city government set guidelines for the purpose.
Among the guidelines include:
- Vendors are only allowed to sell their products in their designated area.
- Vendors must collect their garbage and not rely on street sweepers.
- Balut shells, BBQ sticks, and other trash should not be thrown on the street.
- Used oil and sauce should not be tossed on the road.
- Vendors whose areas are not cleaned by 5 AM will be disqualified.
- Vendors should observe CLAYGO (Clean as you go).
- Vendors must follow the ordinances on cleanliness, garbage collection, ban on the use of plastic bags, among others.
- No minor shall be employed unless they're only assisting their parents.
- Drinking alcoholic beverages is not allowed, except for ala cart.
- Gambling is not allowed in the Night Market.
- Illegal electricity connection is not allowed.
- Don't pee anywhere (portalet is provided in the area).
- CEED is the Night Market administrator.
- If there are complaints or disagreements, these will be resolved by the Grievance Committee.
- Violators will be issued with Ordinance Violation Receipt (OVR).
Apart from the orientation, raffling was also held to determine the place where the sidewalk vendors will be transferred. The areas reserved for them are Guillermo, Daumar, and Ramonal Streets, as well as portions of Yacapin and Osmeña Streets. (JAS/CIO)
