MISAMIS Oriental Governor Yevgeny Emano on Monday, July 17, said the capitol is planning to loan money for the transfer of the province-run detention facility.
Emano said the priority of the next three years of his last term as governor will be the transfer of the Misamis Oriental Provincial Jail (MOPJ) to Initao town.
The governor said the plan for the transfer is already in place. He said the new MOPJ will consist of four buildings.
“Tan-awon pa nato ang (We have to look at the) budget but it would be hundreds of millions,” Emano said.
“Kung mabalhin na ang MOPJ kanang daan nga luna will be open for private-public partnership so kinsa tong interesado karon palihog sa pagpahibalo so we can receive your unsolicited proposal,” he added.
Once the provincial government is able to raise more funds, the capitol is also set to purchase two buses that will be used to transport inmates of the MOPJ in attending court hearings and other purpose.
“We are planning to borrow money for the construction of the new jail and after ma transfer ang jail apilan nato og palit sa duha ka bus nga gamiton sa mga piniriso (we will also buy two buses for the prisoners),” Emano said.
The capitol also planned to buy two more coaster buses and multi-purpose vehicles which will be used by the capitol departments in their transactions and operations.
“Apilan nato ang mga department nga walay sakyanan,” Emano said.
“I need the help of all engineers and our architects to triple your time kay daghan ta proyekto (because we have a lot of projects) in the next three years,” he added.
