0

BACOLOD CITY: Bacolod City Lone District Rep. Evelio Leonardia said P892.843 million worth of projects funded by government agencies is being implemented in this city since July last year. In his State of the District Address (SODA) delivered during his birthday celebration on Thursday, Leonardia said as a neophyte congressman he was able to look for funds for his projects despite the lack of Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF). He said the abolition of PDAF took away at least P70 million a year for various projects in every congressional district. Of the P892 million, P612.648 million was sourced from the Department of Public Works and Highways for numerous projects to improve traffic condition, concreting, re-blocking and widening of national roads and to address flooding problems, construction of drainage system, slope protection and flood control. He said the Department of Agriculture allocated P30 million for the construction of farm-to-markets roads that will help farmers improve their production and income. He said P29.923 million went to 27 projects such as water sanitation facilities, rain water collection facilities and school buildings/classrooms in elementary and high schools.
