BARATON OPEN AIR MARKET NOW OPERATIONAL
The County Government of Nandi has established 32-Unit market stalls at the open air market in Baraton. Open air markets are usually a beehive of activity teeming with vendors and consumers.
It is for this reason that the County has ensured proper hygiene and sanitations are put in place. Sufficient water supply, toilets and an organized waste disposal management were provided to ensure the market meets its needs.
There is a high mast lighting system at the market hence trading activities can run till late hours. Upgrades and modifications to sections of the market are still on-going.
In a public participation exercise held on Tuesday the residents applauded the operationalization of the market and further requested for additional stalls and a market shade.
Addressing the residents during the meetup, the Municipal Manager, Mr. Ngeny, assured the residents of enough security and general facelift of the market. He commended the traders for the recent increase in trading activities and promised to follow up on addition of stalls as requested.
Mr. Ngeny further urged the traders to form a Market Committee for easy coordination with county government. Present during the public participation were Chesumei sub-county administrator Mr. Kemboi, Chemundu/Kapngetuny ward administrator and officers from Trade department and County Public health office.
