Naval mayor bares priority projects for 2012

by Flor Jackson

NAVAL, Biliran, Jan 2, (PIA) - Mayor Susan Parilla of the local government unit (LGU) of Naval bared some of her priority projects for the year 2012.

In an interview with Mayor Parilla, she said that the need to complete the drainage projects for poblacion Naval is a priority to avoid flooding in major streets of the area especially now that the rainy season which is usually experienced during the last quarter of the year will spill over during the first months of 2012.

She said, the fund that LGU-Naval received from the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) local funds in the amount of P900,000 as its prize for being one of the municipalities in region 8 that garnered the Seal of Good Housekeeping award will be used to finance the drainage project.

She added that the amount of P1 million won by Naval in the Gawad Pamana ng Lahi award last year, will be added to the P900,000 to complete the drainage project.

Mayor Parilla said that aside from the drainage project that LGU-Naval has to complete early this year, to be given focus by her administration is the strict implementation of the solid waste management.

It was learned that during the middle part of last year, LGU-Naval campaigned to step up implementation waste segregation in every household in Naval town.

A team was formed to give instructions and supervise households in the poblacion on proper waste segregation.

She also said that she will continue the greening program of LGU-Naval by encouraging residents in Barangay Caraycaray, Naval who are living along the shorelines to plant more mangrove seedlings in their place.

A mangrove nursery will be set up in Sitio Banderahan, Caraycaray to ensure continuous supply of mangrove seedlings every time a mangrove tree planting activity is scheduled.

"A total of 1,000 mangove seedlings have already been planted in the coastal area of Sitio Banderahan in 2011 during the mangrove planting activity set in three different schedules last year, Mayor Parilla concluded. (FJ/PIA 8 Biliran)
