SP urges market cleanup


The Sangguniang Panlungsod is requesting a clean-up of public markets, the Manokan Country and the Vendor’s Plaza in Bacolod City, and the declogging of their sewerages.

The request was addressed to the Department of Public Services, City Administrator’s Office, and City Mayor’s Office-Sectoral Concerns, and the Disaster Risk Reduction Management Office through a resolution authored by Councilor Bartolome Orola.

The resolution said it is imperative that a regular clean-up drive should be conducted in all public markets of Bacolod City, including the Vendor’s Plaza, and the Manokan Country, which is hailed as one of the icons of the city.

It said one of the continuing concerns of the city is the strict implementation and observance of proper solid waste management and the promotion of cleanliness and orderliness in the public markets to achieve a consumer and vendor-friendly market place.

The resolution said that considering the daily volume of waste that passes through the canals of the markets and surrounding areas, a timely maintenance and intensified declogging of canals must be implemented to improve the flow of water and holding capacity of the drainage systems.

It is also important to encourage participation of the market vendors in the activity as a means of raising public awareness, it added.*
