Lamitan City Mayor Rose U. Furigay said on Wednesday that the budget allocation for the expansion of the City Council  Session Hall as well as for the construction of offices for each councilor will be discussed and tackled next month.

Furigay said the executive branch of the city under her and the Committee on Budget and Appropriation and other offices of the government will prepare the budget appropriation of the city for fiscal calendar for 2017.

The budget for the expansion of the City Council office includes its beautification.

She observed that the session hall is not big enough and can not accommodate big number of guests and visitors during maiden and special sessions.

“As per my  observation, it needs  expansion,” Furigay said.

She said that City Engineer Ignacio T.  Enriquez will start anytime the inspection and study on how to expand the building with its plan.

Vice Mayor Roderick H. Furigay said that there is a need to expand the session hall and the construction of offices for City Councilors. “It needs a larger area to accommodate more guests and visitors,” he said.

The City Council building also houses the Regional Trial Court  and other offices at the first floor.

A resolution for the expansion of the City Council Session Hall, authored by Councilor Joaquin “ Boy” Puri Jr., was approved by majority of the councilors. — Allen Abastillas
