Residents of barangay Baluno will be fortunate recipients of a newly-constructed barangay hall, another City Government-initiated project aimed at improving delivery of services in far flung barangays.

Mayor Celso Lobregat together with other city officials will trek through the mountainous village of Baluno, 28 kilometers west of the city to inaugurate and turnover the P4.2 million barangay hall, the third barangay hall to be unveiled in two weeks.

Ladjid Tantong, Baluno acting barangay chairman, his councilmen and other village officials will be on hand to formally accept the donation.

Lobregat expects accelerated delivery of services to the people with the new facility which will serve as the barangay’s center of governance.

The two-storey barangay hall has a huge conference room, offices for the chairman and the councilmen and officer of the day, comfort rooms and other amenities.

Lobregat asserted that his administration has been and will continue to focus attention on projects and programs in the barangays to accelerate delivery of services to the people and ultimately bring about progress and development.

Barangay halls and other infrastructures such as school buildings, covered courts, drainage systems, slope protection and riprap projects, community police action centers, health centers and fire stations and several others have been constructed, consistent with the needs of the barangays, since 2007 to present.

Last December 3, Lobregat spearheaded the turnover of the P4.2 million barangay hall, the P1.27 million center for elderly and the P2.06 million fire station in Labuan and last Dec. 11, the P1.9 million reconstructed barangay hall in Cacao was unveiled.

Numerous other projects are almost complete or are ongoing and are expected to be unveiled and turned over in the days and months to come. — Sheila Covarrubias
