Mayor Beng Climaco on Thursday motored to Barangay Latuan in the east coast where she led in the inauguration and turnover of four farm-to-market roads amounting to P16,527,532.98.

Subject to the engineering integrity and the usual government auditing procedures, Mayor Climaco first unveiled the concreting of Bongal to Calabasa, Latuan road (950 linear meters) costing the city government P6,433,798.60.

From there, she proceeded to inaugurate the Sitio Bitayan to Betong, Sapa Moro to Pagsanghan, Latuan road measuring 273 ln.m in the amount of P1,944,774.44.

Climaco and her entourage then convoyed to Sitio Sapa Moro and turned over to Barangay Latuan the rehabilitated farm-to-market road of 966 ln.m worth P6,156,190.75; and later the road concreting project (232 ln.m) amounting to P1,992,769.19.

Mayor Climaco said the newly completed road projects will uplift the living condition of the people in Laturan and nearby villages, especially the farmers as they will no longer have difficulty in bringing their produce to the markets.

She said more roads are expected to be opened in different parts of the city as it was the thrust of her administration to make people’s lives easier and the countryside more livable; thus fostering peace in the community.

Joining the mayor in Latuan were City Engineer Luis Vicente Despalo, Councilor Ismael Musa and the barangay officials headed by Chairwoman Rosita Macarandang.

Today, the chief executive together with Engr. Despalo and other city officials will again preside over the inauguration of the newly constructed barangay hall and road projects in Barangays Tumitus and Taguiti, also in the east coast.— Vic Larato
