City turns over P16M infra projects to remote barangays

by Jocelyn P. Alvarez

ZAMBOANGA CITY, Jan. 5 (PIA) -- Two remote barangays of the city formally received yesterday various infrastructure projects totaling to P16.1 million.

City Information Officer (IO) Sheila Covarrubias said Mayor Celso Lobregat yesterday motored to barangays Sibulao and Mangusu, some 78 kilometers east of the city to unveil the various projects the city has initiated in the said barangays.

“Lobregat first inaugurated the newly constructed covered court worth P2.4 million in Barangay Mangusu,” Covarrubias said.

She added that the mayor proceeded to Dr. Diaz Memorial Elementary School to unveil a P499,000 school fence and to Mangusu Elementary School for the P129,000 pathway and P203,000 drainage system.

Covarrubias also said the mayor went to Brgy. Sibulao to unveil and turn over the P12.9 million five road projects connecting Dabuy and Merloquet.

“Despite the distance from the city proper, the city government displays its concern for the people in Sibulao and Mangusu through the implementation of enormous projects in the area,” she said.

According to her, Lobregat will be inaugurating more projects this year in the various barangays of the city.

The city IO said, “The projects inaugurated yesterday are located in the interiors of the barangays. This goes to show that we are not only concentrating development in the center but also in the interiors.”

Covarrubias said the nine projects inaugurated yesterday was a show of consistency of the city’s commitment in bringing development to the barangays. (JPA /S.Covarrubias/CIO/PIA ZBST)
