AT LEAST 19 towns will get projects early this year through the 20-percent development fund of the Province.

The Cebu Povincial Board (PB) approved at least 26 resolutions last Jan. 19 for the implementation of various projects with a total amount of P10.731 million.

The projects to be implemented will be funded by the 20-percent development fund from the Capitol’s Internal Revenue Allotment.

For the first district, PB Member Raul Alcoseba sponsored a resolution authorizing Cebu Gov. Hilario Davide III to grant P210,000 as financial assistance to Barangay Valencia, Carcar City.

The amount will be used for the installation and maintenance of street lights in the barangay.

PB Member Peter John Calderon sponsored six resolutions for the projects to be implemented in Santader, Samboan and Moalboal in the second district.

A P3.741-million assistance will be given to the town of Santander, while Moalboal will get P4 million for the construction of its waterworks system.

Samboan will get a total of P1 million to build a water reservoir in Barangays Camburoy, Monteverde and Tangbo of Samboan.
