By Jocelyn P. Alvarez

ZAMBOANGA CITY - The city government unveiled on Thursday, P1.9 million worth of infrastructure projects in the island barangay of Tumalutab, in the city’s  east coast.

The unveiling was led by Mayor Beng Climaco who personally took her time out to visit the island by taking first a navy boat, then transferred to two rubber boats to reach the said island.

The lady chief executive turned-over to Tumalutab barangay officials, 3 infrastructure projects worth P1,903,890.48 in the barangay. Grateful residents also witnessed the turn-over activity.

Mr. Vic Larato of the City Information Office said the projects that were turned-over  included a newly-built catwalk of 40.32-linear meter long, a comfort room and a 38.50 meter long footbridge.

He said the construction of said projects started in October 2014 undertaken by Benram Construction firm.

This project turn-over was conducted  during the ‘Dia del Alcalde”, an outreach program of the lady mayor which aims to bring the city government’s basic social services to the people, especially those in far-flung areas.

Prior the unveiling, the mayor distributed PhilHealh insurance cards and 10 reading glasses to identified beneficiaries of the Tumalutab community.

An estimated 500 residents benefited from the “Dia de Alcalde” services which included free civil registration of live birth and marriage, agri-fishery and veterinary services.
