The city government’s support to the barangays continues with vigor regardless of distance and location.

Mayor Beng Climaco last weekend motored to the east coast to turn over projects to 3 barangays as well as consult with barangay officials in a bid for the city to implement projects and programs that are in accordance with the needs of the people.

Barangays Taguiti, Buenavista and Panubigan—all far flung barangays located east of the city each received a package of projects. These included farm to market roads, a 3-classroom school building and wellness center for Taguiti; fence and gate projects at the barangay hall compound for Buenavista and a barangay hall and farm-to-market roads for Panubigan. Consultations with the barangay officials followed.

The turnover of projects and the consultations were done after the other. Mayor Climaco was joined by Councilors BG Guingona and Roel Natividad and City Engineer Luis Despalo and representatives from other offices. The mayor also turned over wheelchairs to pre-selected beneficiaries.

Present to receive the projects and to join the consultations were the barangay officials in Taguiti, Buenavista led by Chairman Eugene Jumawan and Panubigan headed by chair Jacqueline Magasa.

mayor has been visiting the barangays both in Districts I and II to consult with the officials with regards to projects and programs for implementation this year.

In previous days the mayor also turned over projects in barangay Cawit, Latuan and Muti and also held consultations in the areas concered. Salaan, Pasobolong, Zambowood, Lumbangan, Talon-talon, Tetuan and Zone III were also consulted by the mayor.

The consultations are part of the mayor’s thrust on participatory governance. — Sheila Covarrubias
