In our daily life, we often face issues related to street vendors. No matter it is school, office, or even hospitals, the menace of vendors’ crowd can be found everywhere.
We often tend to deal with or try to ignore this menace. But sometimes, issues become so severe that it becomes too hard to avoid. Then we ask the local administration to take the necessary steps.
So, learning how to write official letters to the municipal commissioner in this context is quite common and important for both your daily life sustainability and from an examination point of view. So, let’s get started.
Question: Outside your school, you regularly have to deal with a crowd of vendors. Write a letter to the local municipal commissioner of your school area complaining about this issue and look for some viable solution.
Hints: Near market- Habituated with crowds- Recently situation became worse- Worst situations during exams- Food, fruit, raw vegetable vendors- Dirty area- Nasty smell- Request for solution

Subject: Vendors are interrupting school life
I am a student of class 9 from Azad Nagar Boys’ High school. Today I am writing this letter to you to bring under your kind concern that we are facing severe issues every day in our school due to a large crowd of vendors right outside our school’s gate.
As our school is quite nearby to the market, this area often tends to stay crowded. So, we are quite habituated to dealing with small crowds. But recently, the area outside our school has become so crowded that it’s being very tough to enter the school and attending our classes with proper concentration. During the time of our exam, we realize the menace of this situation at its worst. Most of these vendors sell foods, fruits, raw vegetables. That’s why the area becomes quite dirty every day and nasty smell comes even to our classrooms.
So, through this letter, I want to request you earnestly to take necessary steps on an immediate basis to remove this crowd of vendors from in front of our school and restore the sustainable environment ideal for studying.
Question: Recently, you’re facing severe problems while going to the school due to the crowd of vendors on the school’s adjacent pavements. Write a letter to the municipal commissioner local to your school explaining the entire issue and ask for necessary actions.
Hints: Middle of a busy street- Large marketplaces- Pavements occupied by vendors- Narrow spaces- School’s entrance blocked- Congested and dirty- Requested but didn’t work- Request for solutions

Subject: Vendors outside the school are creating severe trouble
I am from Hridaypur Public School, a student of class 10, writing you this letter to let you know about the severe problem we are facing due to crowded vendor occupation on the pavements adjacent to our school.
Our school is situated near the busy Middleton street of Hridaypur. This area contains two large marketplaces and often tends to stay crowded. The pavements in this area are often occupied by street vendors. Due to this occupation, the pavements have become so narrow that people can hardly walk using them. At the very entrance of our school, the vendors’ crowd is larger due to plenty of spaces. Because of it, the entrance stays quite congested and dirty. Our school authority has appealed to these vendors many times to evacuate the place but nothing has worked.
So, it is my earnest request to you to take necessary actions as soon as possible to make our school’s entrance free from any unnecessary crowd of vendors.

Subject: Interruption in school life due to vendors’ pandemonium
I am from Uttarpara Al-Amin High school, a student of class 11, writing this letter to you to complain about an issue we are facing due to a heavy crowd of vendors outside our school.
Our school is located just beside the Uttarpara Railway station. Due to this prime location, we have to deal with extreme crowds every day during our school time. But recently, specifically, the crowd of vendors has been severely increased and we’re dealing with their continuous pandemonium during our school time. It not only interrupts our classroom study but also affects the calm atmosphere of the school. Our school used to be a reputed one in the district, but due to such an environment, the reputation is also going down.
So, through this letter, I want to request you to take some immediate measures to improve the current situation and help to restore the normal atmosphere for our school life.

Subject: Concern over some issue of vendors outside the school
I am the student representative of Sodepur Deshbandhu High school, writing this letter to you to express my concern over a report that some vendors are selling some unethical goods outside the school.
There’re several stalls of vendors outside our school. Some of them sell stationery items, some sell foods and some vendors sell just items of daily needs. It was last year, since when we have started facing some issues with the students of our school. Many of them have been caught with various types of narcotic items like cigarettes, hash, cannabis, etc. In serious cases, we had to inform even the police and some of the students have been taken to childcare home. But despite taking strict actions, this problem doesn’t seem to stop. Recently we got some reports that some of the vendors outside the school sell these narcotic items to the students. We have informed the police regarding this, but no action was taken.
Through this letter, I want to request you earnestly to look into this matter and take the required steps to thoroughly investigate our suspicion.
That was all about our presentation on writing editorial letters to the municipal commissioner about the various menace of vendors outside the school.
