Fish vendors urged to follow time rule


THE Honiara Central market fish vendors are being urged to comply with the new closing time introduced by the Honiara City Council (HCC).

This call was made yesterday by the management of the Honiara Central market.

It follows observations that fish vendors are often seen staying in the market premises until late, way past closing time.

Speaking on behalf of the management Mr Jimson Riunga said the fish sellers non-compliance to the time rule affects coordination of the market.

“We urge them [fish sellers] to comply with the closing time set even if they have excuses relating to the fish issues.

“Because if we [management] keep on wait and listening to the excuses made the introduced rules and regulations is hopeless, hence comply so that market officers will have time to tidy up the premises for next day,’ he said.

The introduced closing time is 6pm.
