Starting from January 7, 2018, the Mayor and Councillors of the City of Georgetown would be conducting a special registration exercise for all itinerant vendors. The registration process which will be held in the Town Clerk’s Department will continue until February 7, 2018.
The process will span the period 10:00 a.m., to 3:00 p.m., daily.
However, to facilitate the registration process, vendors are required to bring along their national identification cards, two passport size pictures, and a process fee of $3000. For 2018, the Council would be creating a special data base for all iterant vendors, who operate with the precincts of the City, from Agricola to Cummings Lodge.
This would allow the Council to monitor the operations of these entrepreneurs, on a daily basis, and to provide an enabling environment for growth and development of their businesses. This would also help the Council to determine the vending population in strategic areas. The registration is in accordance with Municipal and District Councils, Act Chapter 28:01, section 301.
Meanwhile, the Council wishes to remind all vendors, who were given the opportunity to ply their trade on Council’s parapets, reserves and thoroughfares, for the festive season that all structures should be removed by January 15, 2018.
