For months, residents in San Pedro Town have been wondering about the status of YJ’s food deli that is located at the corner of Black Coral Street and Angel Coral Drive. The deli belongs to Joel Chi, driver of the Minister of Tourism, Culture and Civil Aviation and Area Representative Manuel Heredia Jr. It was erected two years ago with the sole purpose of providing food for the construction workers of the San Pedro Sunset Boardwalk Project.
The erection of the deli on public land was given the green light through the Sustainable Development Project (STP), which fell under the Ministry of Tourism. While also selling food for profit to the wider community, it has never paid municipal tax. In fact the deli has never been registered in the San Pedro Town council tax data base.
Mayor of San Pedro Town Daniel Guerrero said that under the agreement made through the STP, the owner of the deli agreed to vacate the property after the construction and inauguration of the project, that while the owner will be served with a formal notice as agreed upon by the STP, they have up to three months to vacate the property.Click here
