ZAMBOANGA CITY, May 4 – The city government has poured in almost P100 million for various projects in Barangay Sta. Maria, three kilometers north of this city, in a period of five years in line with its thrust to bring about development and progress in the barangays.

Mayor Celso Lobregat, who turned over on Thursday to Barangay Sta. Maria close to P4 million worth of infrastructure projects, said the city government’s projects covered all aspects — specifically education for the young, law enforcement, public safety, environment, service for the elderly and many others.

“Our support and assistance to the barangays has been very constant and continuous,” he said.

The projects turned over Thursday to Sta Maria consisted of the Community Police Action Center (COMPAC), Center for the Elderly, multi-purpose pavement and renovation of the health center that included the construction of garage and construction of fence.

Sta. Maria Barangay Chairman Justo Lacandalo expressed gratitude to the Lobregat administration for the tremendous funds allocated for the barangay.

He said that the projects had great impact on the community in line with the city government’s vision to bring about progress and development in this city.

When the city’s finances stabilized in 2007, the Lobregat administration implemented seven projects worth P19 million in Barangay Sta. Maria.

These projects included two school buildings for the Don Pablo Lorenzo Memorial High School (DPLMHS).

In 2008, there were 10 projects worth P13 million that were implemented and these included the two-storey 12-classroom building at the DPLMHS.
