Mayor Celso Lobregat yesterday motored to the farflung barangay Licomo and Cabaluay to turnover road projects and streetlight facilities amounting to a total of P13.10 million.

Accompanied by Vice Mayor Cesar Iturralde, Councilor VP Elago and Councilor-elect Charlie Mariano, Lobregat first proceeded to Licomo, the farthest barangay in the east coast to turnover to barangay officials led by chairman Eduardo Caloyloy a 66-linear meter road project with box culvert and riprap at sitio Mambala worth P999T and streetlight facilities composed of 20 street posts with 2 control boxes worth P986,396T.

Lobregat said the implementation of the projects in Licomo is proof that the local government supports the needs of the different barangays regardless of their location, population and people’s cultural beliefs.

Caloyloy thanked the mayor and the City Government for seeing to it that the barangay folks wherever they are will benefit from the services of the  government.

He declared that the road project and the street lighting facilities will have a big impact on the lives of his constituents who are mostly engaged in farming activities.

From Licomo, Lobregat and party proceeded to Cabaluay, 20 kilometers east to unveil 2 road projects—one, a 1,062-linear meter road with line canal and 2 cross drains and 382.40 linear meter-slope protection worth P9.67 million while the other, a 345-linear meter road connecting Cabaluay to Cacao with 20 cm thickness and 6 meters width, worth P2.45 million.

Cabaluay chairman Maco Apolinario gratefully accepted the responsibility of taking care of the projects and to ensure that it will benefit all the residents of the barangay.

While there, the mayor also inspected another ongoing road project from Cabaluay to Cacao with 1 cross drain and line canal with a stretch of 270 linear meters worth P2.46 million. The project is 40% complete.

Lobregat said the implementation of enormous projects in the barangays is proof that the local government under his administration places high priority on the wellbeing of the constituents.

He vowed that more projects will be unveiled and turned over in the days to come before he relinquishes his post as mayor and assumes as the District I Representative in the House of Congress. — Sheila Covarrubias with report from Jasmine Mohammadsali
