Mayor Quisumbing: Opening of new public market postponed to give way to Charter Day celebration
Mandaue City Mayor Gabriel Luis Quisumbing said the opening of the public market will be postponed to give way to the celebration of the city’s 49th Charter Day celebration.
The Cebu politiko said the transfer of the vendors to the new public market will most likely be moved to September.
“We are about 92 percent complete, gamay nalang gyud ang kuwang so we are targeting a phase transfer of the market by early September. We were actually supposed to begin the process of doing it late this month,” Quisumbing said.
“Since we have several major activities lined up this month for the Charter Day, we decided to postpone it to September to minimize any sort of inconvenience by having to start the phase transfer by late August,” he added.
Quisumbing also announced that they city government is eyeing a night market in the Mandaue City to help displaced vendors.
“We’re considering for a night market but we have no list of who will be prioritized at this time. Since right now, we are taking a look for a potential site first to put up to a possible night market,” he said.
