In line with Mayor James “Bong” Gordon’s plan to reorganize and restructure the Olongapo City Public Market, a meeting was held at the FMA Hall of the Olongapo City Hall on August 01, 2008.

City Councilor and Committee on Public Market Chair Ellen Dabu presided over the said meeting with the public market’s bilao, kulot, fish, tinapa and kalamay vendors. The meeting discussed the impeding reorganization of the space assignments of the vendors, especially those occupying the steps of the wet portion of the market.

According to Councilor Dabu, Because of this change in the arrangement, only the original and legitimate vendors, who were already there since the 80s, are the ones who will be given priority and allowed to maintain their stalls.

As part of the expansion of the public market, the City Engineering Office is declogging the drainage systems of the 20th St. of East Bajac-Bajac. After a massive cleaning, sixty five (65) uniform canopies will be installed for the remaining vendors.

“Sa kasalukuyan ay pinag-aaralan na rin ng City Government ang ilan pang posibleng relocation areas para sa mga posibleng mawalan ng pwesto dahil nais ni Mayor Gordon na makapag-negosyo ang lahat ng manininda na dapat ay nasa maayos at tamang lugar lamang,” said Dabu.

It can be recalled that a previous meeting with the public market’s street vendors was held wherein City Engineer Bobby Alvarez explained the plan to install uniform canopies at the 20th, 21st and Baretto St. on East Bajac-Bajac.

“Nais rin ni Mayor Gordon na ang mga pamilihan ng lungsod ay maging attraction sa mga turista kaya mahalaga na maayos sa paningin ang iba’t-ibang mga palengke sa Olongapo,” Dabu added.
