new public market
BY JUANCHO GALLARDE
If plans push through in cooperation with the market vendors themselves, the new public market in Dumaguete City will rise in one-and-a-half years without necessarily spending government money for a two-storey building with underground parking.
Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo said yesterday that under the public-private partnership or PPP scheme, a private business group will be allowed to a rent portion of the 1.7-hectare lot where the market is currently located.
