CITY OF MALOLOS– Governor Daniel R. Fernando together with Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) Assistant Regional Director Jay E. Timbreza led the inauguration of the 987.60 linear meter drainage system at Balagtas-Pandi Provincial Road along Brgy. Santol, Balagtas, Bulacan this morning.

The P9,460,621 worth project, which was funded through the 2022 Seal of Good Local Governance Incentive Fund, aims to address flooding problem through efficient flood control, and provide proper discharge of waste water, rain water, and run offs in the area.

According to Fernando, through the project, the province could respond not only to flooding but also to the danger caused by stagnant waters, which is the source of disease and other threat to health and safety.

TURNOVER AND ACCEPTANCE. Governor Daniel R. Fernando signs the certificate of turnover and acceptance of the drainage system at Balagtas-Pandi Provincial Road along Brgy. Santol, Balagtas, Bulacan earlier today. Witnessing the signing are (seated) Balagtas Mayor Eladio E.

Castro, Vice Mayor Ariel Valderama, and DILG Region 3 Assistant Regional Director Jay E. Timbreza.

“Sa bawat hakbang natin tungo sa kaunlaran, patuloy nating tinitiyak ang kaligtasan at kaginhawaan ng bawat isa. Ito po ang tunay na simbolo ng Seal of Good Local Governance na pitong magkakasunod na taon na nating nakakamit—ang gumawa ng mga paraan upang maramdaman ng bawat isang mamamayan ang tapat at mapagkalingang paglilingkod ng ating pamahalaan,” the governor said.

For his part, Timbreza congratulated the Province of Bulacan for winning the SGLG award and for successfully implementing the drainage project.

“Protektahan po natin at i-maintain po natin ang proyektong ito. Pagmalasakitan po natin ang proyektong ito. ‘Wag magtapon ng basura nang sa gayon ay humaba ang service years ng ating drainage system,” he said.
