News day / Port-of-Spain Mayor Keron Valentine, issued the warning to vendors during a tour of Charlotte Street with other officials of the Port-of-Spain City Corporation, and Senior Superintendent McDonald Jacob of the Port-of- Spain Division.
Valentine said, If this project cannot work, if we cannot bring this project to some level of order, decency and cleanliness, then the programme will have to be shut down. Attempting to get a scope of the issues facing vendors and also making observations of his own about the vending programme, Valentine noted complaints by the Downtown Owners and Merchants Association (DOMA) with regards to vendors blocking the entranceway of stores in the city.
He said numerous complaints have been made about the state of the nations capital and it cannot be ignored. Valentine continued, There will not be business as usual if the problem isnt dealt with. The City Corporation will meet on Monday and review all the information we have accumulated thus far to decide on a way forward for the programme. When asked about the Salvatori Building vendors, Valentine said, The Minister of Housing, who was treating with the building on Independence Square South, was changed and I am yet to meet with the new Minister whose remit the building falls under. I know there have been continuous conversation with the administrative arm of the co-operation and the administrative arm of the HDC, he said.
