City Development Council OKs 8 programs

THE City Development Council (CDC) of Dagupan has approved ₱18.9 million worth of programs and projects funded by various national government agencies for inclusion in the proposed 2018 Supplemental Annual Investment Plan No. 1 of Dagupan City.

The projects are now awaiting the approval of an ordinance by the Sangguniang Panlungsod (SP) for their implementation.

They include the construction of 42 units of individual toilet facilities in various barangays, implementation of “Iwas Baha”, an emergency employment assistance for preventive maintenance of roadside and drainage canals in the city, under DOLE’s Tulong Panghanap Buhay sa Ating Disadvantaged/Displaced (TUPAD) Workers Program; River-based Aquaculture of High-Value Fish Species for 51 fisherfolk families,  blast freezing facility for Shared Service Facility for bangus processing; construction of Bacayao Sur Barangay Health Station; construction of a Satellite City Health Office in Bonuan Gueset; development of Park and Plaza and boat terminal at A.B. Fernandez West, preservation and beautification of the remnants of the Franklin Bridge, and construction of the Mayor’s Pavilion at Tondaligan in Bonuan Gueset.

Funds for the proposed projects will come from the Department of Health, Department of Labor and Employment, Health Facilities Enhancement Fund of DOH Regional Office 1, and the Local Government Support Fund and Performance Challenge Fund awarded to Dagupan for winning the Seal of Good Local Governance for the third time last year.

The programs prepared by OIC-City Planning and Development Officer Josephine Corpuz and endorsed by City Budget Officer Luz de Guzman were approved by Mayor Belen Fernandez.

The CDC resolution was attested to by lawyer Liberato Reyna Jr., president of the Civil Society Organization of Dagupan.

The programs and projects were not included in the 2018 Annual Investment Program, particularly those which were awarded by national government agencies, hence the Supplemental AIP, the CDC said. (Leonardo Micua)
