The growth in informal markets in Madang town area is posing a big treat to Health and hygiene of people who resides in Madang town.

Madang Town Mayor Joe Yama revealed this in a press conference on Thursday in Madang Urban LLG Chamber.

Yama said the Madang town Authority understands the needs of the people and are allocating certain areas in the 10 wards of Madang Urban for informal markets with certain conditions that people sell only approved items and be mindful of their rubbish.

He said however, vendors resort to sell whatever they want and keep on throwing rubbish anywhere they want which is not right and against the set rules.

Yama says MULLG always get the blame for increase in illegal activities and law and order problems but most of this activities are caused by people who know the rules yet continue to break it.

He said MULLG know that some vendors depend entirely on the income earn form the money collected from selling goods and services on the market but rules must be respected.

He added that MULLG will monitor and see all the informal markets and those who cannot comply will be deal with accordingly.

He stressed that health and hygiene is very important and people must take care of their own rubbish by putting it in appropriate rubbish bin to be collected.
