0 505

Iloilo City Mayor Jerry Treñas gave vendors another five days to vacate the city sidewalks.

The vendors were initially given until Tuesday to vacate the sidewalks areas.

The order is in relation to the directive of President Rodrigo Duterte to reclaim all public roads in 60 days, said Treñas. (https://dailyguardian.com.ph/vendors-get-5-day-reprieve-mayor-heeds-appeal-of-sidewalk-hawkers/)

The local chief executive previously announced that the city government will relocate the affected vendors to a property of Panay Electric Company in JM Basa Street in City Proper.

But, as of Tuesday, the area is still being cleared of vegetation and debris.

Treñas has also promised affected vendors to get P5,000 in financial aid.
