Guam - They may not have been out in full force in the last few weeks, but members of the Flea Market Task Force are still making frequent checks of the Dededo Flea Market. Dededo mayor Melissa Savares is now leading the group to ensure all vendors are operating in compliance.
She says DPW, the Guam Fire Department, Public Health and DISID will be conducting a random inspection of the grounds soon, telling KUAM News, "Those are being corrected as we speak vendors have been notified.. the food handling and preparation those are all taken care of it's the bbq that are not in compliance, they need the fire extinguishers to be visible and accessible."
Mayor Savares adds DPW and Land Management are still assessing one business that operates seven days a week, as there is a question if the structure is blocking public easement. The village mayor also notes the private flea market area is now in compliance, and the land owners are working to pave the lot as well as take down the abandoned building.
