PIA Press Release

P7 million Pampanga quarry shares released

San Fernando, Pampanga (4 September) -- The Pampanga provincial government has recently released Php7.7 million of quarry funds as shares of the various municipalities and affected barangays in the quarry collection of the province from July 16 to August 15, 2007.

According to the provincial information office, this is the second time that Governor "Among" Ed Panlilio will be giving shares to seven towns and 22 barangays involved in quarrying. The said fund is intended for the use of these areas to support their programs and projects.

Panlilio promised that the shares of the municipalities will be given regularly at the end of every month. He initially released Php4.058 million last month and gave these to areas affected by quarrying.

An addition of more than Php3 million in the quarry revenue this time is a welcome development; not only does it prove the potential in lahar, but that this industry just might get better, Panlilio remarked.

The governor is also pushing for improvements in the quarry collection system to further increase the province's earnings from sand and gravel.

"Let us all work together to ensure that the people of Pampanga will truly benefit from the bountiful riches that God has so generously given us," Panlilio urged the mayors and barangay officials present during the turnover ceremony.

The municipalities and barangays that have been benefiting from the bounties of lahar include Bacolor, Floridablanca, Lubao, Mabalacat, Mexico, Porac and Sta. Rita.

The increase in the revenue generated from the quarry industry has been a major priority for the governor. In time, Panlilio hopes to translate these funds into programs and projects that will not only deliver basic government services to the people but also serve as a way to better the lives of indigent Kapampangans.
