The Market Division of the City Treasury Office under City Treasurer Alex Cabarrubias has demolished 32 stalls at the bodega section and spruced up the chuchiria section of the city public market as the city intensified the cleanup of the city’s trading center.
This is in line with Mayor Benjamin Magalong’s clean and orderly Baguio program recently revitalized to ensure prompt action on concerns on improper garbage disposal, untidy surroundings, and clogged canals among other things.
City Market Superintendent Ceasar Emilio said they decided to remove the temporary stalls used as bodega at block 4 relocation area because of its filthy condition.
The chuchiria section located at the back portion of the hangar building and its surroundings overgrown with weeds and trees had to also be tidied up.  Other areas near the chuchiria structure located will also be cleaned.
Emilio said they have also started putting to rights other parts like the fish section where eyesores were cleaned up like the Styro cooler deposit areas and the individual stalls.
Flushing operations are conducted regularly to remove the dirt, mud, and leftover waste.
Emilio said a follow-up inspection showed some improvements. 
He said the cleanup campaign will continue with the cooperation of the stallholders. – Aileen P. Refuerzo
