Sungei Rd: Help by charging stalls’ market rates?

I refer to the article “Sungei Rd vendors receive more help” (Straits Times, Jun 17).

It states that “The National Environment Agency (NEA) yesterday said that more than 40 lock-up stalls, up from the previous figure of 30, have been set aside at market rent, which ranges from $240 to $900.

With about a month to go before Singapore’s last free hawking zone is closed, NEA said that 27 of around 200 Sungei Road Hawking Zone (SRHZ) sellers have already been allocated these lock-up stalls.”

So, does it mean that out of the around 200 vendors or so – only 27 have taken up the offer?

How are we really helping them by charging them market rates?

As to “The 11 original Sungei Road vendors who had permits to hawk at the open-air market were earlier offered a stall free for the first year and at a 50 per cent subsidy for the second year” – why are only 11 out of 200 offered reduced rental for the first two years?

  • Survey recently:

    Set up a ministerial committee to study the various options available , repossessed ? Make it as a heritage site ? Tourist site ? Convert as a sungai temple ? The committee members should comprise TTKY . TCB TJS and Tan KLian , what do you thinks ? Son more gun ? Any conflicts of interest before they proceed because together they are aware of thier status and have 100 years public services.

    LHL charged his brother more than market rate for his father’s house. Then screws him by setting up a committee to control the property. A crook.

    You mean now then you know? Too late isn’t it. The day they said he slapped someone in office can count him out already. No wonder his father said we are daft. But I think his father now will tell himself he made a daft mistake.
