Seawall vendors form Committee to have some of their concerns addressed – 9th May 2013
Proper lighting, adequate security and garbage disposal are just some of the concerns the newly formed Seawall Vendors Committee plan to raise at the next meeting scheduled with the Works Ministry officials.
Just last week the Works Ministry took a decision and banned the regular Sunday night lime and vending at the Georgetown Seawalls between Vlissingen Road and the Ocean View Hotel following high tides and over topping in that area.
The vendors have since been relocated between Camp Street and Vlissingen Road to operate their usual Sunday night business. The Committee Chairman, Nicolas Ramcharran said the body respects the relocation, but hopes that the authorities can meet some of their concerns.
Ramcharran said the newly formed body is already looking at possible ways the committee can regularize the group’s operations.
Last weekend barricades cordoned off the area between Vlissingen Road and the Rupert Craig Highway forcing vendors to relocate to the new identified area at the seawall. The Committee is expected to once more meet with the Works Ministry officials on Friday.
