Screening of tenants of the rehabilitated Block 4 of the city public market has started.
This is part of a string of market development projects being implemented to address the clamor of vendors and the public for a more presentable and clean market.
The same criteria applied in selecting vendors at the Block 3 will be used for Block 4.
“We will be adopting the order of priorities we have set for Block 3,” the mayor said.
The first priority would be permanent residents of the city, and those included in the census of actual occupants with permits conducted by the Baguio City Market Authority, those whose names are listed in the census and are paying their dues to the city, those who are in the census but were not paying rent, and new applicants.
Block 4 can accommodate 412 tenants.
“I hope the rehabilitation will be completed ahead of schedule so we could check on other developments needed in the public market,” Domogan added.
