Meeting planned to settle issues on use of Perfecto St
by Rimaliza A. Opiña

A meeting with jeepney associations using Perfecto Street staging area will be called by the Office of the Mayor to thresh out issues regarding the night market extension.

Citing changes in route and schedules, jeepney associations are protesting the use of Perfecto Street as extension of the Harrison Road night market.

Some jeepney associations in the area cater to passengers until midnight. The night market opens at 9 p.m. and operates at around the same time.

The affected drivers said they would be displaced if the city government proceeds in allowing vendors occupy Perfecto Street.

Last Monday, they trooped to the city council and asked for their intervention.

Under the Local Government Code, the city council is authorized to close city streets and roads.

Mayor Mauricio Domogan is firm on implementing the recommendation of the Baguio City Market Authority, which he also chairs, to allow walk-in vendors who cannot be accommodated at Harrison Road to occupy Perfecto Street.

“Sayang ‘yung lugar. Wala nang tao kapag ganoong oras,” the mayor said and suggested the Burnham Lake Drive as alternate route when the night market opens.

Domogan said accommodating more vendors would increase the income derived from the night market.

He said some funds are used to augment expenses in the maintenance of Burnham Park.

“Marami itong natulungan at gusto ng mga turista.”

He added the arrangement is temporary, pending the finalization of plans to transform the periphery of Melvin Jones as permanent site for the night market.

The Harrison Road night market accommodates an average of 1,000 vendors every night and earns around P1.5 million each month from the daily kuartais.
