In Calbayog City
TACLOBAN CITY – Mayor Raymund Uy of Calbayog City led in the turnover of projects to a remote village of the city funded by the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG).
The project involved a P4 million worth of school building and street lights in Barangay Macatingog, considered the farthest village in Calbayog City.
The project is part of the DILG’s Support to Barangay Development Program which provides essential infrastructures and social services to geographically isolated barangays like Macatingog.
The village was also said to be a former lair of the communist rebels, the New People’s Army.
Mayor Uy, in his talk with the community, reminded them to continue supporting the government and urged them to maintain and sustain the new projects.
“Maswerte kamo kay ini nga administrasyon nagbuburublig para sa kaupayan san barangay,” he said.
Among those present during the turnover were DILG assistant provincial director Fortunato Legarde and city counterpart, Gretchen Mae Corrales, Lt. Col. Naser Arojo, the commanding officer of the 43rd Infantry Brigade, and city police director, Lt. Col. Aquilino Pongcol.
