Firm in its commitment to bring government services to the people wherever they may be, the City Government over the weekend unveiled P11 million worth of infrastructure projects as well as delivered medical services and other programs folks in the island barangays.

The projects unveiled and turned over included the P6.4 million road concreting project from Landang Gua to Pasilmanta covering 2.75 kilometers; P3 million slope protection project in Busay and the P1.708 million health center in Landang Laum.

Mayor Beng Climaco personally spearheaded the inauguration and turnover rites manifesting the local government’s thrust to implement projects and programs for all residents of the city regardless of their location. She was assisted by Councilors Percival Ramos, Mike Alavar, Rommel Agan, Eddie Saavedra and Gerry Perez including City Veterinarian Dr. Mario Arriola.

The inauguration and turnover rites were held one after the other in the concerned barangays in the presence of the barangay officials and constituents.

The local government is never remiss in its obligation to bring projects and programs not only in mainland or nearby barangays but also farflung and island barangays to ensure that all constituents get equal share of government services.

After the project inauguration rites, the mayor also sat down with the barangay officials in every stop she made to hear the people’s voices. The consultations were to ensure that projects and programs implemented for the barangays are with the consent and approval of the people themselves.

The medical outreach mission along with provision of veterinary, civil registry and agricultural services was held in barangay Landang Gua which served over 300 families.  Bags were also distributed to Grade 7 pupils in the area through Mayor Climaco’s personal advocacy on education.

Last August 2, the mayor also led an outreach mission in the island barangay of Tigtabon.

The Dia de Alcalde is an outreach mission conducted in barangays in celebration of a village’s fiesta. It is  initiated by the local government and features the frontline services of the city delivered by the City health Office, City Veterinarian, City Agriculturist and City Civil Registrar. Personnel from the Philippine Navy and the Philippine Air Force and other agencies also join the mission. — Sheila Covarrubias
