Market draft plan unveiled

Shayal Devi
Monday, January 20, 2014

THE first draft of how the Sigatoka Market will look after its $200,000 upgrade will be unveiled before the Sigatoka Town Council and various stakeholders this week.

Sigatoka special administrator Jay Whyte said they would give their feedback on the plans once they had seen the draft.

"If we confirm by the end of January, then works are expected to begin soon," he said.

"We will also need various approvals of the stakeholders."

At this stage, Mr Whyte said the market upgrade was the most important event to happen in the first quarter of 2014.

The project will be funded by the government.

As 2013 came to a close, one of the biggest challenges was collecting overdue rate arrears.

"About 15 per cent of the total rate arrears has been unpaid and we are in the process of taking various individuals to court for the outstanding payments."

In the first quarter, Mr Whyte said they would be holding some celebrations for Easter.
