Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo and businessman Danford Sy led today’s opening of a new road network connecting Colon Extension Taclobo to Angatan Barangay Tabuc-tubig beside the multi-purpose building that will offer another route for motorists and help decongest traffic.
The City Engineer’s Office deployed heavy equipment for the ongoing clearing of the roadway, removal of obstructions, preparation of sub-grade, spreading and compaction of aggregate sub-base course so that this new road will become passable to motorists with the long-term plan of eventually concreting the same.
Mayor Remollo commended Danford Sy and his family for donating a portion of their property (from CK Oil Gas Station to Angatan) to the City Government of Dumaguete for public use.
The road opening project has been allocated P 850, 000 for the civil works required covering a total length of 300.00 linear meters, 15.00 meters in width and area of 4, 500 square meters.
Among the officials present are Vice-Mayor Karissa Tolentino-Maxino, Councilors Lilani Ramon and Manuel Patrimonio, former Councilor Manuel Arbon, Punong Barangay Roger Bohol of Taclobo, Randy Fausto of Tabuc-tubig, Maelyne Rose Mariano of Poblacion 8, Liga ng mga Barangay President Dionie Amores and other barangay officials who expressed collective gratitude for this generous donation from a philanthropic family.
