The Bacolod City Sangguniang Panlungsod has passed a resolution calling for Mayor Evelio Leonardia to implement City Ordinance No. 08-14-666, also known as “The Night Market Ordinance.”

The ordinance aims to establish a night market in the city.

City Councilor Simplicia Distrito, author of the resolution, said the implementation would be timely as it could serve as a solution to the matter of displaced sidewalk vendors.

The ordinance creates the Night Market Committee, which will supervise market operations, added Distrito.

Bacolod City Administrator John Orola had said the city plans to establish a weekend night market
