Health, fisheries bodies to inspect mini wet markets

! THE City Council committees on health and sanitation and health insurance and on agriculture and fisheries chaired by Councilors Maria Lourdes Gaane and Annie Daba, respectively, will look into the sanitation concerns of mini wet markets or talipapa in the barangays as raised by the City Economic Enterprises Department management.

This, as the joint committees thoroughly discussed the proposed ordinance providing for the Meat Inspection Code of Cagayan de Oro City of 2018.

At the recent joint meeting of the committees, Rey Calixtro, former Slaughterhouse Master II of City Slaughterhouse, manifested that the operations of mini wet markets really affect the sale or income of the meat and fish vendors at Carmen and Cogon Markets.

He also requested the committees to look into the sanitation problem caused by the mini wet markets.

It was observed that some mini wet markets are permanently located along the road of a barangay thereby exposing their meat and other products to dust and other bad bacteria.

For her part, Daba observed the poor sanitation at mini wet markets. She cited the mini wet market near the old city landfill in Barangay Carmen.

Daba said proper sanitation in handling the meat should be implemented.

Dapat istriktohon gyud na sila,” Daba said.

Representative of CEED said this should be addressed since the Clean Water Act will be implemented by year 2020. (sp)
