A two-storey public market with a mezzanine will soon rise in San Jose, Mayor Jose T. Villarosa announced Thursday.
Villarosa said the bidding for the construction of the San Jose Public Market will be held in February and construction is expected to start by March.
The wet section will be on the ground floor, while the dry section will be on the second floor. The mezzanine will serve as a recreation area.
Villarosa asked stall owners to settle their arrears to the municipal government so they can be included in the priority applicants for stall lease.
At the same time, he said that rental fee would be reduced contrary to speculations it would rise due to the market’s modern amenities.
