Incoming Silang mayor Kevin Anarna visits public market, cites need for improvement

Incoming Silang mayor Kevin Anarna did not like what he saw when he visited the town’s public market.

In a Facebook post, Anarna said the place was dirty and smelled bad, and its design was not good either.

“Walang maganda at maayos na drainage system at walang tubig sa wet section. Ang daan ay masikip lalo na po sa isdaan. Dahil walang maayos na drainage system naging maputik at basa ang loob ng palengke,” he said on Facebook.

He also said there was no system for disposing of the garbage from the stores, which adds to the dirty look.

The public rest rooms do not have running water either, he noted.

“Ibang-iba ang ating palengke kumpara sa mga karatig-bayan. Kaya mas kakaunti na ang dumadayo dito para mamili,” he said.

Anarna said he would work to improve the public market so that more people would patronize it and its vendors would earn more.

“Mas dadami ang mamimili dito at maslalaki ang kita ng mga nagtitinda dito kung maayos natin ang palengke,” he said.

The vendors would also need to learn discipline when disposing of their garbage so that the market would be more orderly, he said.

He plans to put up a timbangan ng bayan and to implement a two-way system inside the market as well, he said.

Implementing all these would not be easy, but these have to be done, he said.

Everybody would benefit from the market’s improvement, he added.

“Unti-unti ay aayusin muli natin ang ating palengke. Ang mga mamili at mga nagtitinda ang parehas na makikinabang sa displinado at magandang pamilihang bayan. Tulong-tulong, unti-unti ay babaguhin natin ang mahal nating bayan,” he said.

He also said he was open to suggestions to address the problems in the market.
