Jomtien Beach vendors were given a reminder to keep the shoreline clean and free of smokers.
About 60 beach chair vendors and masseuses met with Pattaya mayoral advisor Sretapol Boonsawat, Manop Sakorn, chairman of Jomtien Beach Thai Traditional Massage Club and city regularly-enforcement officers Dec. 18.
The agenda covered cleanliness of the beach, Thailand’s beach smoking ban, vehicle traffic, garbage collection and beach chair parcel boundaries.
Vendors were told their primary responsibility is to keep their areas of the beach clean and to properly dispose of rubbish in tied plastic bags which must be dropped off at the appropriate pickup point on time.
They also are required to help enforce the smoking ban and alert patrol officers in cases where the beach-goer doesn’t comply.
The vendors also were asked to ensure that any vehicles brought into the Jomtien “free zone” area are relocated after no-parking rules go into effect.
Sretapol and Engineering Department Director Sunthorn Sompramai then checked the progress of the latest phase of the Jomtien Beach landscaping overhaul.
