TAGUM CITY, Davao del Norte, 30 June (PIA)— On top of the soft socio-economic goals, Tagum City Mayor Allan L. Rellon is poised to go for hard projects: infrastructure.
In his inaugural speech delivered after officially swearing into office at the new Christ the King Cathedral, Rellon revealed plans to bring to grassroots level various infrastructure projects after inaugurating the new City Hall.
“…. Maka-focus na kita sa uban pang mga dagkong infra projects diha sa suok nga parte sa atong syudad,” he said.
Embarking on his second term, he is set to institutionalize the Infrastructure Development Task Forces to focus on various projects particularly on roads, drainage, schools, public building and facilities, water system, on lighting and peace and order.
In a separate interview with the media, Rellon said each of the six Development Task Forces will be separately handled by an engineer to ensure the implementation of programs and projects to fall under their respective concern.
Rellon was optimistic about substantial funds to fuel his infrastructure projects saying that he had already proposed P900 million worth of projects to the executive board of the Davao Integrated Development Program (DIDP) and to the Regional Development Council.
Other than infrastructure, he however vowed to even double efforts of ensuring a much better life for Tagumenyos through his development agenda anchored on EAGLE WINGS that stands for Employment, Education and Culture; Agriculture, Fisheries and Environment Development; Genuine Peace, Safety and Security; Livelihood and Tourism Development; Economy and Affordability of Taxes; Wellness, Sports and Health; Infrastructure , Transportation and Communication Development; NGOs, GOs and Cooperative Development; God-centered and Good Governance; and Social Services.
