Everyday more and more street vendors are setting up shop with apparent permission of the SPTB-with limited parking they are taking more and more places in central park and elsewhere.
There are more and more stalls being set up on the beaches in front of the hotels.
As these people do not pay tax and only a pittance to the SPTB it is almost impossible for locals restaurants,and stores to compete who all have to pay rent. Why should this be allowed to happen? remember the SPTB keeps saying they have no monies but they are giving everything away.
One final point is that all vendors,according to the mayor, were to be moved the old refurbished football field which cost a fortune yet no-one besides the football teams/mothers day celebrations appear to use it.
