MERIDA YUCATAN.- Municipal Inspectors conducted a discreet operation in the streets, resulting on the removal of a large number of street vendors who occupied, invaded and obstructed sidewalks in the Historic Center of the city and lacked the corresponding permits, these in response to the complaints of local business owners.
High rank municipal official Gerardo Acevedo Macari, said that to avoid further inconvenience for established commerce, they proceeded to make an inspection in the Historic Center to remove from the sidewalks all merchants without permits and, in its case, to relocate those who did have licenses, but obstructed the pedestrian crossing spaces.
Acevedo Macari explained that the City of Mérida has not given permits to occupy the sidewalks and therefore, whoever locates in those places will be removed. He categorically rejected the complaints of some tenants located inside the Lucas de Gálvez market, who claimed that the City Council authorized several of them to use the sidewalks to sell without permits. He also commented that, this verification carried out throughout the Historical Center, will be a permanent task so those who do not have permission will be removed from the site, because no one without the proper authorization will be allowed.
Regarding the project to relocate the street vendors at the San Benito market, the official said they are working on a plan but there is still nothing solid yet, since a feasibility analysis has to be conducted.
