City turns over P5.59M barangay hall to Zone II

The City Government Tuesday turned over a newly-constructed barangay hall to residents of Zone II in the city proper as part of its infrastructure program and continuous support to the barangays.

The project costing P5.59 million, sits in a 283.68 square meter area located in front of the former BJMP Regional Office. It was undertaken by the Benchmark Engineering and Construction under the supervision of the City Engineer’s Office.

Mayor Beng Climaco who led the turnover ceremony challenged the barangay officials headed by Chairman Nonito Arañas to maximize the use of the facility to further hasten delivery of services to the people.

She assured the residents of the city’s unwavering support to the barangays even as she appealed for the residents’ support to the government’s priority thrust on Security, Health and Education (SHE) program.

As the frontliners, barangay folks play a crucial role in the city’s progress and development, she added.

The new Zone II barangay hall is only one of the numerous infrastructure projects unveiled by the present administration for this year. The other projects, implemented in other barangays included school buildings, covered courts, concrete roads, drainage systems, police stations and numerous others.

Last January, the city also turned over the Zone III barangay hall, worth P2.194 million. (Sheila Covarrubias)
