Traders at Dengkil, Salak Tinggi, Sungai Pelek and Sepang wet markets who fail to keep their stalls clean under the council’s new merit system will risk their operating license being revoked.
The council Licensing and Traders Department director Noor Halif Noorzan said under the system, which started this month, those who scored 69.9% and below would be given a warning.
After three warnings, he said, the council would revoke their operating licenses.
Those who scored between 70% and 89.9% would get a notice to improve the condition of their stalls while those who secured 90% and above would be given certificate of appreciation.
He said the traders were being judged under five criteria — licensing, condition of the sale table, trader’s image, goods and trader’s ethics when conducting business.
A total of 105 wet market traders are subjected to the new system.
“Council health officers will make their rounds three times a week to see if the traders are maintaining the cleanliness,” he said.
