The sanitation office may become strict in giving sanitation permits to meat and fish vendors in the town of Malay.
This was after the problem on sanitation at the Malay Public Market at Caticlan Village occurred wherein the Local Government Unit (LGU) of Malay received a complaint from consumers because of broken down facility and not so clean place.
According to Malay Sanitation Inspector, Ma. Lyn Fernandez, they do not issue permit to vendors if they do not pass from their requirements which includes the cleanliness of the place where vendors sell their products.
Fernandez added that they continue to monitor including the people of Malay who sell fish and meat products.
Moreover, they strictly prohibit selling at places which are near unclean surroundings and where there are many animals.
In addition, another area monitored by the Sanitation Office is the “Talipapa Bukid” in the Island of Boracay where many complain that the said market is a bit unclean.
Furthermore, many vendors not given sanitation permit from the LGU Malay continue to sell at markets.
