Merida Mayor Mauricio Vila Dosal said that during his administration more permits for street vendors have not been issued, and on the contrary, their number has been decreasing.
Interviewed at the conclusion of the 2016 Tunich Fair, the mayor noted that the presence of street vendors is going down because when he began his administration (about 10 months ago), about 700 street vendors were reported in the census, and now there are about 380, which implies a reduction in this figure close to 45 percent.
In addition, unoccupied stalls in the market of San Benito, and others outside the city center, can be concessioned. For this, interested parties must submit their application to City Hall.
He noted that the director of markets is working to free the sidewalks of vendors, in conjunction with the National Chamber of Commerce Mérida (Canacome) and leaders of the street vendors.
“There is a willingness to accomplish this and although it seems slow for some, it is a constant effort to make space for Meridanos so they can walk on the sidewalks,” he said.
As an example of this, he said a few weeks ago a special operation was undertaken in San Juan Park, where several vendors had taken up places to conduct their activities without any permission. This practice seeks to be eliminated.
