Lumbangan folks thank Zambo mayor for P1.5-M barangay hall
Zamboanga City (September 3) -- Residents of barangay Lumbangan thanked Mayor Celso Lobregat for allocating P1.497 million that paved the way for the construction of a two-storey barangay hall.
The imposing barangay hall was inaugurated and turned over by no less than Mayor Lobregat Sunday morning in the presence of some members of the City Council, some city officials and Lumbangan residents.
Alfredo Wee Sit, Lumbangan barangay chair said the construction of the barangay hall is the fulfillment of the residents' dreams and aspirations. He said the project will help enhance the delivery of basic services to the people.
"Our dreams have come true", Wee Sit declared. Prior to the construction of the barangay hall, the Lumbangan Council holds office at the residence of the barangay chairman.
The new building, undertaken by a private contractor with supervision from the City Engineer's Office will house various other offices such as the City Social Welfare-field office and the Police Action Center (PAC).
Mayor Lobregat in his message meanwhile said the implementation of different projects in the barangays is a manifestation of his administration's continuing support and assistance to the barangays.
Lobregat is confident that the implementation of infrastructure projects would bring about improved services to the people in the barangays.
And as he inaugurated the barangay hall, the mayor also committed to find ways and means to pave the road from Lumbangay leading to Lumayang and Lunzuran.
Some portions of the access road are unpaved to the inconvenience of the residents in transporting their products from the barangay to the market.
Immediately after the inauguration and turn over program, Lobregat along with City Engineer Luis Despalo inspected the proposed road projects.
Also present during the turn over rite were Councilors Lynet Abarro, Lilia Nuno, Rudy Lim, Roel Natividad and Eddie Saavedra, Executive Assistant for barangay affairs Felisardo de las Penas, General Services Officer Rene de la Cruz, barangay constituents and several other equally important individuals.
