Vendors at the Stony Hill Market will be relocated while upgrading work at the facility takes place in the upcoming weeks.
According to Mayor of Kingston, Senator Delroy Williams, work has already started on the sanitary conveniences, while the work on the general market are will commence in about two weeks. He said he is expecting the work to be completed in months.
He said the market area will get a redesign with refurbishing work also scheduled on the lighting, roof and vending stalls, which will now have space for the vendors to store goods.
“The market vendors will be relocated nearby for the time that we are doing the repair work here. We are here today, to just look at the progress on the sanitary convenience and also to speak with some persons here at the market to just highlight what we intend to do,”
Williams said, during a tour of the facility Tuesday morning.
The tour also included Town Clerk Robert Hill, councillor for the Stony Hill Division Tosha Schwapp and other members of the Kingston and St Andrew Municipal Corporation (KSAMC).
Williams said work on the Stony Hill Market is a part of the KSAMC’s drive to improve markets across the municipality.
