Far-flung barangay receives P12M infra projects

by Michael Vincent D. Cajulao

ZAMBOANGA CITY, Jan. 14 (PIA) –- The city government unveiled yesterday another multi-million peso infrastructure projects in Barangay Bolong.

City Mayor Celso Lobregat, together with some key officials, personally turned over five infrastructure projects amounting to P12.3 M.

First to be turned over is an irrigation system project in Paminguitan, Bolong measuring to 70 linear meters worth P459,746 to aid famers in the area. From there Lobregat and his team went to Mangga-Bolong Elementary School to inaugurate the P300,00 fencing project. The city officials also inaugurated a 300 linear meter road project amounting to P2.95 million along the barangay’s famous summer destination, Bolong Beach.

Next to be turned over is the new three-storey, nine classroom building of Bolong Elementary School and its drainage system to ensure that no flooding will occur during rainy season. Bolong is declared flood-prone barangay by the Mines and Geosciences Bureau of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (MGB-DENR). The building costs P8.1 million while the drainage system is pegged at P494,000.

Lobregat said the series of projects inaugurated in the far-flung barangays of the city is a testament of the city government’s goal of expanding development outside the city proper.

In related developments, Lobregat promised the Zamboanga City State Polytechnic College of continuous support.

“We commit to help you in whatever way we can”, Lobregat said during the 3-in-1 program celebrating Dr. Nora Ponce’s third year as pesident of the school.

The city government has implemented various infrastructure projects in the school, most especially when a storm surge in 2007 wrecked the schools fences and some buildings, as it is located along RT Lim Boulevard. (JPA/MVC/PIA ZBST)
