Mayor Celso Lobregat yesterday spearheaded City Government officials in unveiling two infrastructure projects for the barangay of Lubigan in line with the City Government’s on-going development efforts for barangays.

Lobregat officially turned over the completed two-storey barangay hall worth P4.6M and covered court worth P2.1M to the barangay of Lubigan, represented by chairman Muktar Sajili, during the inauguration ceremonies also attended by Congresswoman and mayoralty aspirant Beng Climaco, incumbent city councilors and other guests.

Combined, the two projects amount to approximately P6.7 million.

“Grande o diutay el barangay, tiene maga proyekto,” said Lobregat regarding the legacy that his administration will be leaving behind. It is a legacy which he hopes will be continued by his successor.

Previous projects implemented in Lubigan include a 2-storey 6 classroom building for the Lubigan High School. A day-care center is also currently underway.

Additionally, Lobregat revealed plans to construct a barangay health center for Lubigan and to install at least four streetlights in the barangay, as he instructed City Engineer Luis Despalo to prepare the plans and estimates for the project and City General Services Officer Rene de la Cruz to immediately install the streetlights.

From 2007 to 2012, the City Government implemented 3,833 projects amounting to P5.4 billion. All these projects, according to Lobregat, were implemented without borrowing a single centavo from banks and financial institutions.

Also present were incumbent councilors Eddie Saavedra, VP Elago and Percival Ramos and District II congressional aspirant Jomar Lobregat and Team PNOy council bets BG Guingona, Art Onrubia and Kit Barredo, personnel from the City Engineer’s Office headed by Engr. Luis Despalo, the contractors, barangay officials from Putik, Quiniput, Mangusu and other neighboring barangays. — Jasmine Mohammadsali
