ZAMBOANGA CITY, 10 July 2012 by Vic Larato—Six barangays in Zamboanga’s legislative district received a pick-up type vehicle each from Mayor Celso Lobregat in line with the city government’s Community, Environment, Livelihood, Security and Order (C.E.L.S.O) program in the villages.
Recipients of the city’s 4×4 vehicles were barangays Guiwan, Lamisahan, Putik, Divisoria, Lunzuran and Pasobolong, bringing to a total of 35 barangays that have so far received the C.E.L.S.O. vehicles.
As in previous turnovers, Lobregat urged the barangay chairmen to take care of the vehicles and use them for the community, protection of the environment, livelihood for the people, maintenance of security and order in the barangay.
Last Friday, 15 barangays received similar vehicles. They were barangays Bolong, Bunguiao, Cabaluay, Cacao, Calabasa, Guisao, Latuan, Lumbangan, Mercedes, Quiniput, Talabaan, Talon-Talon, Tugbungan, Victoria and Zambowood.
Earlier, transportation were also awarded to Taluksangay, Sibulao, Tolosa, Tagasilay, Mampang, Mangusu and Lansone; (second batch) Vitali, Licomo, Tictapul and Tigbalabag; (4th batch) Dulian-Upper Bunguiao, Boalan and Culianan—all from District 2.
The chief executive said all 90 mainland barangays of the city will receive the pick-up vehicles, while the eight island barangays will receive a multicab and pump boat each in a bid to hasten mobility and ultimately accelerate public service in the barangays.
Each 4×4 vehicle costs the city government P997,500 while the multicab and pump boat cost P290,000 and P150,000 each, respectively. Funding for the purchase of the transportation facilities is taken from the 2011 and 2012 budgets of the city. (Vic Larato)
