New Davnor town to invest in farm-to-market roads

by RG Alama

San Isidro (18 January) -- The infant municipality of San Isidro will put in funds to build an adequate network of farm-to-market roads to boost its largely agricultural economy.

“We are waiting our Internal Revenue Allotment which is estimated to be P24 million pesos plus our revenues coming from the taxes we collected. From there, we will source to finance our farm-to-market roads,” San Isidro’s appointed mayor Tomas Abelita Sr. said.

San Isidro was carved out of the seven barangays of Kapalong and the six barangays of Asuncion. It’s main agricultural products include cacao, coffee, copra and bananas.

The barangays comprising the present San Isidro town were the far-flung, abckward barrios of their respective mother municipalities.An unpaved, tortuous road network straddles the town, which is in turn connected by a provincial dirt road to its two neighboring municipalities.

“It is my vision that San Isidro will become a premiere agricultural town of Davao del Norte, but in order to achieve that dream, we must invest in our agricultural infrastructure, like those farm-to-market roads,” Abelita said.

Other projects in the pipeline include the construction of a new municipal hall (presently the Mayor’s office is housed in a ramshackle barangay hall) and a public market. (PIA) [top]
