Wednesday, July 2, 2014. JUAN CAAL Reporting: The Punta Gorda market is undergoing major renovations.

The upgrading of the facility is being undertaken with funding from the European Union in collaboration with the PG Town Council.

Mayor Anthony Fuentes says the renovation and upgrading is expected to take about a year to complete, and in the meantime, vendors have been relocated to a temporary area.

Mayor Fuentes says that for some time now, the market had become overpopulated, forcing some vendors on to the side of the street, which is not the best environment to conduct business.

But while all agree that the renovations and upgrading are necessary, some vendors are complaining about their relocation during the process, saying that their daily income will be affected as the designated temporary market area is not conducive.

Mayor Fuentes says that some of the same people who are now complaining about the relocation, are the same ones who attended several meetings and came up with the idea of the temporary area for vendors to use.

The Mayor pledged that his Town Council will continue to work hand in had with the vendors to make the transition as smooth as possible until the new and improved market is completed.
