Pilar town acquires P10-M for road repair fleet

Tagbilaran City (19 February) -- Knowing the critical role of road networks for an agricultural town like Pilar, local government officials have acquired through loan a fleet of road maintenance equipment recently.

According the municipal information officer Gualberto Jaspe, a team from the Land Bank has just inspected the town acquired grader, backhoe, road roller, two ten-wheeler dump trucks, a pick up truck and a van for office use.

Mayor Wilson Pajo, wo is also an engineer by profession said he is happy about the arrival of the equipment which would now play a major role in their road maintenance and repairs.

Road repai and maintenance has been a perennial problem with Pilar, especially when big portion of the key farm to market roads are not for all weather types, he said.

Then, road repair and maintenance has always been dependent upon the availability of the provincial government or National Irrigation Administration's equipment.

Late last year, the Local Government got the loan nod for P10M from the Land Bank of the Philippines, for the purchase of the said equipment.

Last December, the technical working group of the local Bids and Awards Committee went off to Cebu to see the winning bidder and initially inspect the equipment for the big buy.

The same group sealed the deal for the buy with a final inspection of the equipment before shipping them to Bohol, Jaspe recalled.

Late last week, Land Bank sent a team to inspect the equipment, at a time when the equipment were well on the way of the project site doing what they were supposed to do. (PIA) [top]
