Mayor Celso Lobregat yesterday afternoon turned over pick-up type vehicles to six more barangays in District 2 in line with the city government’s Community, Environment, Livelihood, Security and Order (C.E.L.S.O) program in the villages

Yesterday’s recipients of the city’s 4x4 vehicles were barangays Guiwan, Lamisahan, Putik, Divisoria, Lunzuran and Pasobolong, bringing to a total of 35 barangays that have so far received the C.E.L.S.O. vehicles.

As in previous turnovers, Lobregat urged the barangay chairmen to take care of the vehicles and use them for the community, protection of the environment, livelihood for the people, maintenance of security and order in the barangay.

Present were the chairmen of the beneficiary barangays, Councilors Percival Ramos, Abdurahman Nuño, Lilia Nuño, Nonong Guingona  and Rudy Lim  together with City Hall Chief Executive Assistant Mario Roca and Executive Assistant Amilpasa “Caloy” Bandaying.

Last Friday, 15 barangays received similar vehicles. They were barangays Bolong, Bunguiao, Cabaluay, Cacao, Calabasa, Guisao, Latuan, Lumbangan, Mercedes, Quiniput, Talabaan, Talon-Talon, Tugbungan, Victoria and Zambowood.

Barangays that already received the 4x4 vehicles were (first batch) barangays Taluksangay, Sibulao, Tolosa, Tagasilay, Mampang, Mangusu and Lansone; (second batch) Vitali, Licomo, Tictapul and Tigbalabag; (4th batch) Dulian-Upper Bunguiao, Boalan and Culianan—all from District 2.

The chief executive said all 90 mainland barangays of the city will receive the pick-up vehicles, while the eight island barangays will receive a multicab and pumpboat each in a bid to hasten mobility and ultimately accelerate public service in the barangays.

Each 4x4 vehicle costs the city government P997,500 while the multicab and pumpboat cost P290,000 and P150,000 each, respectively. Funding for the purchase of the transportation facilities is taken from the 2011 and 2012 budgets of the city. — Vic Larato
