PIA Press Release

P30 million bus terminal, public market awe Mabini residents

By Jean Duron-Abangan

Mabini, Compostela Valley (16 January) -- Senior citizen Feliza Loreto, 75-years old smiled as she gazed at the new bus terminal building located at Cuambog Poblacion, Mabini.

"Karon pa ko ka kita ug ingon ani ka dako nga project," she said as she looked around the 2.5-hectare development project site where a new public market is located along with the bus terminal.

"Dili ko taga-diri apan ang ilang dungog, dungog usab nako," said Loreto, a resident of Barangay Del Pilar, a nearby barangay of Cuambog.

The development project costs the local government of Mabini a P30 million loan from the Land Bank of the Philippines.

Municipal Planning and Development Coordinator Marcelino Batiao said a team tasked to plan out the integrated bus terminal and public market development project took time visiting other towns to study how the municipal government of Mabini could come up with the much better infrastructure.

"Nag-research mi sa ubang munisipyo. Nangadto mi sa Maragusan, Banaybanay, Carmen aron makita kung unsay maayo," he said in an interview.

Initially, 20 wet market stalls have been put up but Batiao said the municipal government is offering a build-operate scheme to interested parties so more stalls would be made available for vendors to use. Stalls for dry goods are almost done.

Batiao said that the development site can also accommodate a calling center, commercial stalls, financial institutions, and eatery stalls.

As the municipal government has yet to amend its local revenue code to raise taxes, it is offering space at P10 per square meter only, Batiao said as he revealed that the municipal government is also crafting a Municipal Economic Enterprise Code along with moves to revised local tax code.

Municipal Administrator Neil Francis Labor revealed other locally-funded projects under the administration of Mayor Hadji Amir B. Munoz, and these include the Mabini Technical Vocational School and a number of farm-to-market roads.

Munoz' administration is also able to corner funding from the national office of the Philippine National Police (PNP) for the construction of a new municipal police station building worth P5 million.

Mabini is also a recipient of projects from the KALAHI-CIDSS (Kapit-bisig Laban sa Kahirapan-Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services) and a local telephone project of the Telecommunications Office (TELOF). (PIA XI) [top]
