Every Friday she was on the Bürkliplatz market found today however. Because since 1. May everything is different. "Since the end of April is no longer allowed to participate in the market. Who come still days the seller will get fined," says Schmid. The Information was oral. In a written statement.

That this can no longer be handled, according to Cortesi personal reasons. The offices of the commercial police recently had to be due to structural defects cleared. Now, the administrative departments, including the market police are distributed to various public officials homes in the city. "It says restructurings, which make it necessary, the employees of the market police withdraw for other missions," Cortesi. Therefore, it is also not possible to patrol to the same extent in the markets.
day grants hot desires
On the marketplace of the town house complex, there is a place is now still free, for the police a one-day permit will be issued. Search now for ways, how this place so that all interested parties get a Chance to sell their Goods.
The demand for day permits, according to Cortesi very large – not only at the Bürkliplatz. As for the markets in Altstetten, Oerlikon and Helvetiaplatz for reasons of space, no daily permits anymore. "The market space is limited, in Altstetten and Oerlikon, due to the construction sites on a temporary basis. On the Helvetiaplatz, it will be because of the redesign of the administration building office Boulevard café in the future no daily permits anymore."
From the market driver for social event
the Elimination of the sales revenue on the market is for Rita Schmid manageable, as she herself says. Other hit it much harder. "With the revenue, many Supplement their Pension. This way, they can be short or long-term welfare case."
So easy, the Days of sales days of the seller not want to give up. According to Schmid, you have banded together and last week, signatures must be collected to continue to be on the market to sell their products. Some have also tried to get an annual permit. "But since you don't have a Chance. These monopolies keep the market driver for decades, and you don't."
