Quezon City Mayor Joy Belmonte said she allowed vendors at an illegal public market under Luzon flyover to continue their operations while the local government is still looking for a permanent relocation site.

In a Facebook post , Belmonte said she informed the Department of Public Works and Highways that the city government has taken over the public market.

The mayor recently discovered that the public market under Luzon flyover was operating without proper permits despite collecting P80 to P150 daily from each vendor.

“The owners of the company were invited to City Hall through their administrator to show me their paperwork. They never came,” Belmonte said.

With the local government in charge of the public market, the mayor said there are now regular collection of garbage by Task Force Solid Waste and inspection by the City Health Officer.

Vendors are asked to pay P10 daily to their leaders to maintain cleanliness.

“The City Legal office is currently investigating the issue and is preparing a case against the private company,” Belmonte said.
