Arima Mayor Lisa Morris-Julian and the Arima Borough Council has advised that the Arima Market will be opened for business on Sunday 29 October 2017.
A release from the mayor’s office on Friday stated that the market would be closed due to temporary disruptions in both the water and electricity supply.
However, following several meetings on Friday, Mayor Morris-Julian says the market will be open.
The mayor says that the council considers the livelihood of the Arima vendors a priority.
Therefore, she says, the council has worked with all relevant authorities to ensure that the market is operating despite the circumstances.
Morris-Julian indicated that a supply of truck-borne water will be available to the vendors and portable toilet facilities will be provided.
The Arima Borough Council has thanked Chief Executive Officer of the Arima Borough Corporation, Cheryl Sirju Chong, the Water and Sewage Authority (WASA) and all other parties for their quick action to resolve the issue.
