Mayor Celso Lobregat will spearhead today, October 21, the inauguration of at 3 projects in two barangays, still in line with his massive infrastructure program aimed to accelerate basic services to barangay folks.

To be inaugurated today are the newly constructed barangay hall worth P3.88 million and health and wellness center worth P1.45 million in the far flung barangay of La Paz in the west coast and the P3.82 million barangay hall in Upper Calarian.

The barangay hall in Upper Calarian is only one of the four infrastructure projects amounting to P9.146 million that the city government  has constructed in a property turned over to the city by the Philippine Tourism Authority (PTA) through a usufruct agreement.    The other projects are the health center worth P1.8 million, fire sub-station worth P2.12 million and the community police action center (COMPAC) worth P1.39 million.

The other projects will be turned over and unveiled in the days to come.

Local Government Secretary Jesse Robredo is supposed to lead in the turn over of the projects in La Paz and Upper Calarian today together with Mayor Lobregat but the former has deferred his trip to Zamboanga today in view of the emergency situation in Manila and some parts of Luzon brought about by typhoon Juan.

Mayor Lobregat said infrastructure projects that will enhance the delivery of services will continue to be his priority in the last 3 years of his term.

From 2007 to the end of December 2009, the city government under Mayor Lobregat has been able to implement some P2.2 billion worth of infrastructure projects.

Members of the City Council and barangay officials will assist the mayor in the inauguration of the projects in the two barangays this morning.
