Two week grace period for Spaulding Market vendors
The Clarendon Parish Council has granted vendors of the newly-opened Spalding Municipal Market a two-week grace period for the payment of their market fees.
The privilege was granted at the request of Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller after she declared the facility officially opened on Wednesday.
Mayor of May Pen, Scean Barneswell, said the Council unanimously acceded to the Prime Minister's request although arrangements are still being made to relocate the vendors from the streets.
The opening of the Municipal Market marks the completion of Phase One of a multi-purpose Centre.
Phase Two will see the construction of several shops, a food court, and a haberdashery, and is expected to cost 30 million dollars.
