Kedonganan Fish Market to Be Relocated
JIMBARAN ~ The authorities in Kedonganan village are planning to relocate Kedonganan Fish Market to prevent waste being disposed into the sea and create a more hygienic market, an official said.
Head of Segara Kedonganan Cooperative I Nyoman Sudarta said the relocation was part of a Jimbaran Beach restoration program proposed by the villagers, cooperative and local officials.
â€œThe program also includes building a new fish market with better waste organization,â€ Sudarta said on Tuesday, adding that the new market would start operating in early 2008.
The budget for the project was Rp1 billion (US$110,210), financed entirely by the villagers, he said.
â€œLocal sellers will be charged Rp1.9 million per year. Sellers from outside Kedonganan will be charged Rp3 million per year.
â€œCurrently there are 50 sellers in the market and 80 percent of them are from outside the village,â€ he said.Filed under: The Island
