BALON DAGUPAN NEWS

THE construction of a three-storey evacuation center with a roof deck on top in Barangay Salapingao is now underway.

According to Mayor Belen Fernandez, the project is being funded through the Bottom up Budgeting (BUB) of the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG), with a counterpart from the city government.

Measuring 900 square meters, the project will soon accommodate residents of Salapingao and Pugaro in case of storm surge.

“This is part of the city disaster risk reduction management program of the city which aims to keep the people safe in the island barangay in case a storm surge occurs considering that Salapingao has no land access and can only be travelled by boat,” said Mayor Fernandez who visited the construction site on January 21 along with DILG City Director Rhoderick Dawis and OIC City Engineer Josephine Corpuz.

The project costs P15,089,624.96 million. (CIO/JCB)
