Mayor Celso Lobregat yesterday continued the distribution of 4x4 pick-ups to 17 more recipient barangays, bringing to 71 of 90 mainland barangays to have received the vehicles designed for the enhancement of Community, Environment, Livelihood, Security and Order (C.E.L.S.O.) programs in the villages.

Yesterday’s recipient barangays were Cawit, Malagutay, Salaan, Tumitus, Manicahan, Lapakan, Campo Islam, Talisayan, Calarian, San Roque, Sta. Catalina, Zone 2, Buenavista, Tumaga, Arena Blanco, Tulungatung and Zone 3.

Of the 90 mainland barangays, only 19 have yet to receive the C.E.L.S.O. vehicles in the coming days, while the eight island barangays will receive a pump-boat and a multicab each today.

Barangays that already received the vehicles are Pasonanca, Dulian-Pasonanca, Sta. Maria, Sto. Nino, San Jose Gusu, Sinubong, Curuan, Lumayang, Tetuan,  Taluksangay, Sibulao, Tolosa, Tagasilay, Mampang, Mangusu, Lansones, Vitali, Licomo, Tictapul, Tigbalabag, Dulian-Upper Bunguiao, Boalan, Culianan, Bolong, Bunguiao, Cabaluay, Cacao, Calabasa, Guisao, Latuan, Lumbangan, Mercedes, Quiniput, Talabaan, Talon-Talon, Tugbungan, Victoria, Zambowood, Guiwan, Lamisahan, Putik, Divisoria, Lunzuran, Pasobolong, Ayala, Baliwasan, Baluno, Cabatangan, Camino Nuevo, Canelar, Capisan, La Paz, Maasin and Patalon.

Under the C.E.L.S.O. program, all 90 mainland barangays of the city will receive the pick-up vehicles, while the eight island barangays will receive a multicab and a pumpboat each in a bid to hasten mobility and ultimately accelerate public service for the Community, Environment, Livelihood, Security and Order (acronymed CELSO) 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. Funds for the purchase of the transportation facilities are taken from the 2011 and 2012 budgets of the city. — Vic Larato
