THERE will be no extra fee charged on vendors when a new open shed facility is completed at the Lautoka City Municipal Market, says the city's special administrator, Praveen Bala.
"We want to also ensure that our women vendors, while they are away from home, feel like that they feel at home.
"At their homes and communities, these vendors are the source of livelihood but the hardships they face are beyond imagination."
He said the open shed was designed to provide proper shelter from the rain and heat.
"The extension of the market open shed will oversee the construction of the open shed in an area of 1600 square metres.
"There'll be no more tarpaulin business. Market vendors have suffered a lot and the council will provide that shed for them."
