THE EDITOR: Can the Tunapuna/Piarco Regional Corporation explain the imposition of a shopping fee at the Macoya market? Mind you this is not a parking fee.
As a result of this charge both the shopping and wholesale vendor populations have decreased.
The additional staffing cost to manage this fee has more than doubled and the monies collected can in no way meet this additional cost.
Also the millions spent to construct the additional parking has now become a burden to the taxpaying population.
What skewed logic!
