Barangay Tolosa is the latest recipient of a project package from the City Government manifesting the present administration’s concern not only for the folks in the city proper and nearby areas but also in farflung villages.

Mayor Celso Lobregat spearheaded yesterday afternoon the turnover of a 2-storey 4 classroom building at the Tolosa National High School worth P4.39 million and a 407 linear meter farm to market road at Tolosa worth P1.7 million for a total of P6.09 million.

The two projects unveiled yesterday afternoon brought to a total of P73.35 million worth of infrastructures that the Lobregat administration implemented in Tolosa from 2007 to 2012. Among the significant projects undertaken are the construction and or rehabilitation of water system, education-related projects, slope protection, health center, day care center, barangay hall, bridge, farm to market roads and numerous others.

Assisting Lobregat during the turnover were Vice Mayor Cesar Iturralde and members of the City Council. Tolosa Barangay officials headed by chairperson Caridad Salazar gratefully accepted the projects.

Located 23 kilometers east of the city, Tolosa is bounded by barangay Lanzones and sitios under barangay Salaan, Cacao, Lapakan and Lamisahan. It consists of 10 sitios such as Muti, Tolosa Centro, Bagwak, Lanote, Vista Alegre, Pangulayan, Cotalan, Campo Dos, Imelda and Santa Clara.

Lobregat said the turnover of projects in Tolosa yesterday was proof that the City’s massive infrastructure program is spread out in all the 98 barangays regardless of distance, location and population.

On Monday, Lobregat turned over the first of four fire trucks that the city acquired  for the Bureau of Fire Protection and the P21.4M rehabilitated and improved Sangguniang Panlungsod building. On Tuesday, the P6.1M College of Engineering building at the Zamboanga City State Polytechnic College in Baliwasan was also unveiled.

Some P100 million worth of projects are set to be unveiled and turned over to their beneficiaries before Mayor Lobregat bows out of City Hall and assumes his new post as District I congressman-elect. — Sheila Covarrubias
