MAYOR Mauricio Domogan said Wednesday he will pursue the numerous projects left unimplemented by the City Government since 2004 even as he assured continuation of programs and projects started by his predecessors.

In the initial staging of the weekly "Ugnayan Panlungsod" press briefing last Wednesday, the mayor said numerous projects, mostly infrastructure development costing around P500 million, have remained pending before concerned offices.

He tasked the City Engineering Office and City Building and Architecture Office to submit an inventory of said projects for review.

Projects that will be considered priority will be expedited immediately while those not needed will be scrapped, with the funding reverted to other priority concerns.

"We need to pursue those priority projects no matter how small they are to improve the delivery of service and to sustain our progress," he said.

Domogan said he will continue projects and programs started during the terms of former mayors Reinaldo Bautista Jr. and Braulio Yaranon.

"I have no qualms about continuing these projects especially it these indeed are good for the people," he said.

He said sustaining these projects will also guarantee continuity of these worthy programs and their benefits to the public. (Aileen Refuerzo)
