IPIL, Zamboanga Sibugay -- A farming and fishing village in the fourth-class town of Mabuhay, this province, has received some PHP5 million worth of infrastructure projects from the national government.
Rep. Wilter Palma II, House of Representatives Deputy Majority Floor Leader, said Friday that Barangay San Roque in the island municipality is the beneficiary of two projects consisting of a two-classroom school building worth PHP3 million, and a PHP2-million barangay hall.
Palma said the school building was built with the supervision of the Department of Public Works and Highways’ (DPWH) 1st Engineering District and funded under the school building program of the Department of Education (DepEd).
He said the two-classroom school building seeks to provide a conducive center of learning. It is part of the 332 classrooms up for construction with DepEd's assistance.
The barangay hall, meanwhile, aims to provide greater access and better service to the residents of Barangay San Roque. It is part of the 83 barangay halls identified for construction from 2016 to 2019, the lawmaker added. (PNA)
