Far flung barangay gets P1M drainage systemby Jocelyn P. Alvarez
ZAMBOANGA CITY, Jan. 6 (PIA 9) - - Local folks of far-off barangay Cawit will now have the comfort of a proper drainage system as it accepted yesterday a 150 meter drainage system project amounting to P1million from House Deputy Speaker Beng Climaco.
According to a press statement from the office of Climaco, the project is part of her commitment to help improve the plight of the constituents and complement the programs of the local government.
Cawit barangay Chairman Rey Modillas who accepted the project during a simple turnover rite said, the project was one of the priority projects identified by the Cawit folks themselves.
“Projects like this serve as our guiding point to continue our consultations with the barangay as to the things they need,” Climaco said in a press statement.
The drainage system is intended to direct water coming from the highlands to prevent flooding downstream.
Funding for this project was taken from the Cong. Climaco’s Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF). (JPA /M. Segura /PIA ZBST)
