CLEVELAND – The disagreement between city officials and some vendors at the West Side Market is continuing despite a reduction in rent.

A letter sent to vendors from the Cleveland Department of Public works on Monday announced December rent will be slashed by 50 percent.

Some vendors who talked to FOX 8 say it’s not enough to make up for sales losses during the months-long construction on the parking lot. More than 100 spaces were added. A parking fee is yet to be determined.

According to the  president of the West Side Market Tenants Association Vincent Bertonaschi, three businesses in the market are closing. One owner is retiring who asked not to be named, another did not renew his lease and a third had no comment when asked why the stand would close.
