City Mayor Vicente “Dongkoy” Y. Emano stated that the City Government is set to build 700 houses in the Calaanan Relocation Site.
“The city government itself will manage the construction of these 700 houses. This is a different set of houses aside from the 1,500 houses started by the Habitat for Humanity, and the 300 houses promised by the Filipino-Chinese Community,” the mayor clarified.
“When the houses are completed, we will prioritize the transfer of those families who are presently living in the Tent City. Other families who lost their houses need not worry because you are all included in the relocation, and thus shall get houses as well,” the mayor added.
