Tagum City – Mayor Allan L. Rellon pushes for the prioritization of big-ticket infra projects this year as Tagum City sets its gaze towards being a highly-urbanized city in the coming years.
On the first week of January, Mayor Rellon gathered the employees of the City Planning and Development Office headed by EnP. Arturo B. Manigo, Jr. to check for updates on the plans for the city, particularly on the infrastructure projects that are expected to be completed this year. He urges his personnel to fast track the execution of the said plans and projects without compromising the quality.
Among the projects discussed are the completion of locally and nationally funded projects by the Department of Public Works and Highways and Department of Budget and Management, continuation of the Development Bank of the Philippines funded projects, and implementation of plans for various task forces formed to facilitate the specific needs of the citizens.
The city is looking forward to the completion of some of these projects on the first quarter of the year namely; the City Historical and Cultural Center, the City Disaster Risk Reduction Management Office, and the Tagum Overland Transport and Integrated Terminal (Module 3).
Meanwhile, the projects under the Green Green Green program of DBM are already secured after the city submitted its design for 2020.
With these on-going projects, the Rellon administration is set to move aggressively on its desire to materialize the legacy it would leave behind for all Tagumenyos.
Also present during the joint meeting are the officers from the City Engineering Office, City Architect’s Office, City Budget Office, City Treasurer’s Office, and other vital offices for the finalization and execution of the said plans. Ziyarah Manalo/CIO Tagum
