    Mayor of Kingston, Senator Councillor Angela Brown Burke, is once again calling on vendors to desist from plying their wares outside of the designated vending areas, particularly in sections of downtown Kingston.

    “Vending will not be allowed in ‘No Vending’ areas and this goes for Beckford Street, and between Orange Street and West Street too. We will not be tolerating the construction of illegal structures in the middle of the street…the laws will be enforced,” she said.

    The Mayor was speaking at the Kingston and St. Andrew Corporation (KSAC) monthly meeting on January 13, held at the Council’s offices downtown Kingston.

    She said a sustainable approach to vending is being envisaged and as such, discussions are being undertaken with vendors, merchants, members of the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF), among others.

    “While we work out a long-term and sustainable approach, I want to make it clear that the rules will be enforced,” she said.

    “We made a commitment in discussions with our stakeholders and our partners and we agreed that the approach that we have been taking where our efforts have been inconsistent, at best, needs to end,” she further said.
