The mountainous barangay of Lumayang, located in the interiors approximately 29 kilometers east of the city is the latest recipient of a beautifully designed barangay hall in line with the City Government’s massive infrastructure program and goal of accelerating delivery of basic services to constituents.

Costing P4.1 million, the 2-storey Lumayang barangay hall is the fourth barangay hall to be turned over since December last year which included the facilities in Labuan, Cacao and Baluno.

Mayor Celso Lobregat who trekked through the mountainous village together with Vice Mayor Cesar Iturralde, Councilors Mike Alavar, Myra Paz Abubakar, Percival Ramos, Eddie Saavedra and VP Elago, personally turned over the imposing building to barangay chairman Frederick Atilano and his kagawads.

The imposing building, which incorporates the new design, can be mistaken as a municipal hall on the hilly village. “This shows that the city’s development is not only concentrated in the city proper but even in far-flung and interior barangays like Lumayang are recipients of so many projects that our administration has been implementing,” Lobregat said.

Located just 20 meters away from the newly-constructed barangay hall is the ongoing construction of a covered court where barangay people can hold diverse activities and events. Again, the project is funded and initiated by the City Government.

Atilano hailed Lobregat and the other city officials particularly the majority members of the city Council led by Vice Mayor Iturralde for setting aside funds for various projects in Lumayang since 2007.

He said the over 1,000 constituents of Lumayang appreciate so much the efforts of the Lobregat administration.

With the infrastructures being put in place in the barangay, Atilano said his barangay council will complement the projects with activities and programs in a bid to make Lumayang a model barangay in the city.

Also present during the turnover of the barangay hall in Lumayang were former CSWDO chief Francisco Barredo, FEBARKAZA president Art Onrubia, Zone III chairman Tito Espiritusanto, Homeowners’ and People’s Organization President Violy Alejandro, young entrepreneur BG Guingona, Zamcelco president Bong Atilano, former councilor Elong Natividad, City Engineer Luis Despalo, CSWDO OIC Evelyn Las Marias and barangay chairmen from Guisao, Zambowood and Lumbangan and several others. — Sheila Covarrubias
