City Govt Pouring P12M on Water Connection Project for Relocation Sites

The provision of water connection to all permanent relocation sites in the city is being given top priority by the city government as they focus on speeding up the setting up of water pipelines to the sites.

City Mayor Vicente “Dongkoy” Y. Emano has recently conducted his rounds among the various relocation sites in the city ,e.g. Calaanan and Indahag, to personally check the conditions of the families settling in their new homes and communities.

Predictably, water turns out to be the most needed commodity in the present setup of the communities. And Mayor Emano has informed them to worry not as he is doing his best to hasten the provision of water to them with P12M being currently poured on the water connection project and, in addition, P6M for the implementation of DILG’s Salintubig Project.

Dili lang mabalaka ang atong mga kaigsoonan kay gipa-agpas na nato ang pagbutang og balor P12 milyones nga linya sa tubo sa tubig padulong sa Indahag relocation site, apil pud ang pag-implementar sa P6 milyones nga Salintubig Project sa DILG diin tulo ka water tanks ang ibutang sa matag relocation site,” the mayor assured.

Sugod karong tuiga, makadawat na ang matag empliyado sa dakbayan og tag-P5,000.00 nga Clothing Allowance gikan sa tag-P4,000.00 kaniadto. Hinaut nga kining benepisyo makatabang sa ilang tagsa-tagsa ka pamilya,” City Mayor Vicente “Dongkoy” Y. Emano hoped.

Spanish Bridge To Rise by September

It will start from the banks where J.R. Borja Avenue ends and span the Cagayan River across to the Carmen side.

It is called the Spanish Bridge because all expenses for the construction will be handled by the government of Spain thanks to the efforts of Mayor Vicente “Dongkoy” Y. Emano who has requested for this assistance about 6 years ago.

And finally, everything is ready for its construction which will begin on September this year.

Congressman Benjo Benaldo, whom the mayor has tasked to work out and follow up on the project in the capital, divulged that the funds are ready including that which is needed to pay off the private properties affected by the project.

The mayor thanked the Spanish government for their generosity as the bridge not only will enhance the beauty of the city but most importantly ease up the traffic congestion in the area.

Sa ngalan sa katawhan sa dakbayan, ako, kuyog sa akong mga kauban sa Konseho ug ni Congressman Benjo Benaldo naga-pasalamat sa gobyerno sa Espanya sa maong dakong tabang,” the mayor said.

Mayor Emano expressed his gratitude to Mr. Alejandro Lukban of the Global Pro company for the much needed equipment. These, he says, will greatly serve well in times of flooding.
