The government complex is an area acquired by the City Government for the construction of the 3 important infrastructures—the 2-storey barangay hall worth P4.2 million; the center for elderly worth P1.27 million and the fire station worth P2.06 million.

The Labuan government complex is similar to those established by the Lobregat administration in Recodo, Ayala, Talon-talon, Culianan, Boalan and several other barangays where people can avail of the necessary services in one area.

The structures in the barangay complex are distinctly designed giving dignity and pride to the people in the villages.

Still ongoing is the rehabilitation/ improvement of 2-storey 4 classroom building at the Ramon Enriquez High School, construction of 2-storey 8 classroom builidng at the Ramon Enriquez High School and the rehabilitation/ improvement of the HE building at the Labuan Central School. Up for bidding are two projects pertaining to the rehabilitation/ improvement of covered court at Labuan and the construction of river wall at Purok 2.

Lobregat will be joined in by Vice Mayor Cesar Iturralde and some members of the City Council in turning over the projects to the Labuan barangay council headed by Chairman Roland Maravillas.

Meanwhile, prior to Labuan, Lobregat and party will first drop by Talisayan barangay for the turnover of a day care center which the city government rehabilitated a t a cost of P627,243.55.

Talisayan since 2007, has received a total of P30.33 million worth of projects from the Lobregat administration.
