LEGAZPI CITY, April 28 (PNA) — The Albay Public Market here will be rehabilitated through the Php3 million cash prize won by Legazpi City in the 2014 Seal of Good Housekeeping award for deserving local government units (LGUs) given by the Department of Interior Local Government (DILG).

The award was given to the city for excellent performance in local administrative, social, economic, environment and other forms of good governance that benefited both the community and the constituents, Mayor Noel E. Rosal said.

The Seal of Good Housekeeping is a project of DILG that gives citation or official recognition to LGUs for advancing the principles of accountability and transparency in local governance.

DILG Secretary Mar Roxas recently visited the rehabilitation project, especially its carinderias (food stalls), to see for himself its progress.

"It's my great pleasure to see that it has actually been achieved after this carinderia section was burned and destroyed. It is now being repaired and will have a food court," Roxas said.

The old occupants will be the ones who will use the area, Rosal clarified.

"It is our duty to give the public a sanitary and presentable place to buy food," he added.

Another project that the DILG secretary visited is the water system in Camalig, Albay, that would benefit 1,100 families.

Roxas also monitored the construction of daycare centers in 27 barangays in Legazpi City that will also benefit persons with disability (PWD).

The allocated fund for this project is Php5.8 million. (PNA)
