TAGUM CITY—Tagumenyos can expect a faster delivery of basic services as the local government added new service vehicles to its fleet, providing its service providers with additional means for mobility around the city.
The local government of Tagum, under the leadership of Mayor Allan L. Rellon, conducted a blessing ceremony for the newly-acquired government vehicles consisting of 22 brand new motorcycles, one service vehicle, and one bulldozer, for the benefit of the LGU in achieving excellence in public service.
Six of the brand-new motorcycles are intended for the use of the city’s Security and Traffic Management Offices, respectively, to maximize the efficiency of their services which is in line with Mayor Rellon’s development thrust for genuine peace, security, and safety. The other 16 motor vehicles are for the liaison officers and inspectors from various offices in the LGU to address their need for mobility.
On the other hand, the new service vehicle will be used by the city’s Task Force Patubig which seeks to provide potable clean water supply for residents living in the outskirts of Tagum City that are inaccessible to the water district. The new bulldozer was purchased as an addition to the fleet of heavy equipment used for the development of the city’s existing and upcoming projects such as opening of roads and landfill improvement.
Meanwhile, the local government had accomplished a total of 98 projects for the month of June; 86 of which are LGU-funded and 12 are national-funded. These infrastructures are set to be blessed within this month as well. In fact, 27 of these projects were blessed last June 21, 2017.
The said accomplished projects include asphalting and concreting of roads, road construction, installation of Jetmatic pumps with filtration, drainage construction, installation of lighting facilities, building construction, among others.
Mayor Allan Rellon sees to it that there will be a blessing ceremony every month for the finished city projects, as he personally said that in every project, big or small, should be offered to God for thanksgiving. Drex Rafols/CIO Tagum
