The Tagbilaran City Central Public Market is expected to have an improved interior with an enhanced design once the rehabilitation of the quake-hit market is completed.
This was the pronouncement of city market administrator Jun Besa who noted that the marketplace will have new tiles and a more efficient drainage system to keep the area clean and mud-free.
The first phase of the rehabilitation project started a week ago temporarily relocating fruit and vegetable vendors outside of the market while wet products such as fish and meat remain inside.
Around P2.5 million has been allocated for the rehabilitation of the public market which is projected to be completed within 120 days.
Next year, the city government is intending to fix the marketâ€™s roof which currently has multiple holes.
Meanwhile, rehabilitation of the Cogon Public Market which was also allocated P2.5 million for structural improvements is also ongoing, Besa said.
The said market is also expected to have an improved and cleaner interior once construction is completed.
Last week, construction of the Manga Public Market was also completed while vendors have already started to conduct business inside the renovated establishment. (Allen Doydora)Â
