BACOLOD City – The Market Coordinating and Monitoring Task Force is asking the Sangguniang Panlungsod (SP) to pass a resolution allowing flower vendors to sell along public roads during the observance of All Souls’ Day and All Saints’ Day this year.
Executive Assistant Ernesto Pineda, who heads the task force, said flower vendors have been selling their wares across the city for several years, including areas at the public plaza, along the Burgos Street and in front of the city’s public cemetery.
Earlier, the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) issued a memorandum for all public roads to be free from obstructions.
Pineda said it will depend on the SP if they need to inquire with DILG in relation to the proposal.
Part of the request would require road closures along Burgos Street in front of the said cemetery./PN
