50 villages in Oro to receive multicabs-A A +A
Saturday, February 23, 2013
FIFTY barangays in Cagayan de Oro will receive their respective multicabs through their village chiefs and other barangay officials in a turnover ceremony on Monday, February 25, 10:00am at the regional office of the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) in Upper Carmen.
The 50 units of multicab are part of the 80 vehicles procured through the Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF) of Senator Aquilino Martin L. Pimentel III to be given to all barangays in Cagayan de Oro. The remaining 30 vehicles will be delivered next month.
The vehicles are expected to be used to address the apparent lack of mobilization of the barangays, especially those in far-flung areas and communities.
The vehicles are seen to facilitate smooth coordination with village officials and government agencies to ensure sustainability of projects.
The multicabs can also be utilized in times of disasters and calamities. (PR)
