Barangays tasked to repair overpass, road railings-A A +A
Saturday, August 2, 2014
THE maintenance of overpass and road railings will soon be the responsibility of barangay leaders.
"Mas dali nila ni ma monitor kay naa ra sa ilang area (It will be easy for them to monitor as they are just in the area)," City Environment and Natural Resources Office (Cenro) Engr. Elisa P. Madrazo said.
She said these should have been the duty of the barangay officials even before but no proper turn-over was held.
The City Government of Davao, through the Cenro, will conduct a dialogue with the barangay leaders on this.
"They will sign a pledge of commitment," she said.
Madrazo said the proposal was an order from Mayor Rodrigo Duterte.
"Daghan na siguro nagareklamo kang Mayor about aning mga railings ug overpass nato. It's about time naipasa na ni sa barangay paramatutukannagyud (So many may have complained to Mayor Duterte about the overpass and railings. It's time to turn these over to the barangays to be given attention),"she said. (ANC)
