Cagayan de Oro City Vice Mayor Raineir Joaquin V. Uy has referred to the City Council committee on economic enterprises chaired by Councilor Ian Mark Q. Nacaya for appropriate action the letter of The United Muslims and Christians Vendors Organization (UMCVO-CDOC) earnestly requesting for a resolution to facilitate the reduction of stall rental fees and provision of comfort rooms for the tenants and other rentable spaces at Agora New Market City.
The members of UMCVO expressed their plea thru a resolution and a signature campaign after their previous letter-complaint to the management of the public market sent two years ago was not acted upon up to this time.
As narrated by its president Janal M. Handag, the costly stall rentals and comfort room fees along with the penalties and charges imposed to them are no longer bearable on their part considering the low sales they are experiencing for quite some time.
“Murag dili na kami kapanginabuhi kundi ang nagdumala lang ang among gibuhi,” the letter reads in part.
Their families, especially their children, are directly affected by this suffering as some of them can hardly go to school anymore due to financial distress, Handag further said.
With the latest news that the Agora New Market City will soon be turned over to the city government, its officers and members are hoping that this perennial problem will finally be given a due and favorable solution the soonest time possible. (SP)
