La Penitence market stallholders upset over dilapidated roof

Stallholders at the La Penitence market in Georgetown are asking for repairs to be done to the roof after several roofing sheets were dislodged during a period of heavy wind on Friday.

Between nine and ten am on Friday, a heavy wind lifted at least 5 dilapidated sheets off of the roof  leaving a section of the market exposed for a while until they fell back down and then flipped over again. City workers righted the sheets and fastened them with binding wire.

However, stallholders are saying that this was the second time the roofing sheets have been lifted off due to  heavy wind with no attempts made by the Mayor and City Council to have repairs done.
