CTID organizes ambulant vendorsby Louie T. Cueto
CALAPAN CITY, Oriental Mindoro, Jan. 24 (PIA) -- The City Trade and Industry Department (CTID) recently organized the city’s ambulant vendors to form the Calapan Vendors Association (CVA).
CTID has aligned this project to the city government’s ‘Disiplinadong Calapeño’ program. According to Mayor Doy C. Leachon, the program aims to give the vendors a chance to sell their goods legally. CTID distributed t-shirts, uniforms, hats and identification documents (IDs) to ambulant vendors so they can be easily identified while selling their goods.
The City Health and Sanitation Department (CHSD) headed by Dr. Basilisa M. Llanto also provided them with sanitation permits that will certify that the food they sell are safe and clean for public consumption. (LBR/LTC/PIA-4B)
