AT THE height of the coronavirus pandemic, there are still other services that the Provincial Government of Negros Occidental and the Local Government of Cauayan have accomplished particularly the inauguration of the town's public market.
Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson, together with Sixth District Rep. Genaro Alvarez, Jr. and Cauayan Mayor John Rey Tabujara inaugurated the new public market on September 15.
The town’s new public market is worth P100 million and is located along the national highway in Barangay Poblacion.
The new market has 51 available stalls with wet and dry market areas, commercial stalls, canteen and comfort rooms.
Governor Lacson lauded the cooperation and hard work of the town’s local officials for the realization of the project, which will lead to more economic activities and more progress.
The governor also advised the local vendors to do their share in maintaining the cleanliness of their new market.
He also asked the authorities to strictly implement local health protocols in crowded places, particularly in the new market, to prevent the spread of Covid-19.
For his part, Mayor Tabujara thanked Governor Lacson for all the support the provincial government has provided to their town’s projects which also include the new municipal bus and excavator which were similarly inaugurated.
The 25 barangays also received financial assistance from the town with counterparts from the province during that day purposely to fund for their local projects.
