LGU Tagum begins construction of locally-funded big-ticket infra projects

The Local Government Unit of Tagum City scored another big win after the successful ceremonies for the groundbreaking series of 2018’s first big-ticket infrastructures.

With the financial loan provided by the Development Bank of the Philippines (DBP), the construction of the Php 8 million Meditation House, the Php 4 million Child Minding Center, the Php 190.7 million Cultural and Historical Center, the Php 30.5 million Tagum City Police Training Complex, the Php 20 million City Disaster Risk Reduction Management Office (CDRRMO) Building, and the Php 30 million Tagum City Overland Transport and Integrated Terminal (TOTIT) with Commercial Building, has finally been made possible.

The first three-part ground-breaking series was held last February 14, and the second batch was held on February 19, 2018. Another set of ground-breaking ceremony for the kick-off of phase one of the city’s traffic signalization project will be done on February 27, this year.

Mayor Allan Rellon along with the city councilors, local government heads, Indigenous People (IP) representatives, and Muslim representatives graced the event. The ceremonial signing was completed with the ceremonial drop-off of the time capsules, which contained all the infrastructure plans and documents.

The construction of these projects will be bone by the administration.

Tagum City welcomes this as a momentous and historical event as these new developments pave the way for a progressive term, buoyed mainly by the infrastructure agenda of Mayor Rellon under the flagship EAGLE WINGS Program.

Consequently, the LGU looks forward to the completion of the most awaited cultural and historical  center which will be constructed at the site of the old city hall, housing the first ever museum in the city, a modern city library, a “pasalubong” center, the Knights of Rizal headquarters, and the highly-anticipated 1000-seater theater. Andie Braga/CIO Tagum
