Women market vendors' accommodation to open soon

Monday, January 27, 2014

THE women market vendors' overnight shelter in Rakiraki is ready for occupation and will be officially opened on January 31.

Rakiraki Town Council interim special administrator Ralulu Cirikiyasawa said the ground rules had been set for the women.

"These are things that tell the women when they are supposed to check out, what their behaviour is supposed to be like," he said.

"The only women who qualify for this accommodation are the ones who come from far away to sell their produce.

"If they are unable to sell all their produce on that day, then they can stay at the shelter."

Mr Cirikiyasawa said the council had requested for capital funding from the government.

"This is to help us buy a new truck for garbage collection because the truck that we have right now caters to the whole of Rakiraki and it is quite an old truck.

"Hopefully we are also able to complete roofing and concrete wall at the market. We are also in the process of collecting arrears from ratepayers and we are urging them to pay before this month ends."
