MACABEBE -- Governor Lilia Pineda and this town's Mayor Annette Flores Balgan inaugurated on Monday the newly constructed P7-million left wing extension of the old municipal hall.
Provincial Administrator Andres Pangilinan Jr. and other department heads of the Provincial Government accompanied the governor who joined the regular Monday flag raising ceremony in front of the municipal hall here.
The second floor of the new municipal hall extension now houses the human resource management office and the offices of engineering, assessor, accounting, Department of Interior and Local Government and conference hall while the first floor will be the municipal police station.
Pineda made mention that the municipal government has also augmented funds for the full completion of the municipal left wing extension.
She said the provincial government has also initiated the renovation of the Mayor Domingo Flores District Hospital for the town's folk seeking medical and health services especially those coming from the coastal villages.
The governor said Capitol has also allotted at least P10-million for the improvement of the old covered court located at the five hectare "hidden paradise" in Barangay San Francisco, this town, that was purchased from the National Food Authority.
The governor is optimistic that time will come, Macabebe will be flood- free as the provincial government is bent to purchase a P200-million dredger which is intended to desilt the Pampanga River all-year round especially the sections of Macabebe and Masantol.
The governor also thanked the electorate here for their full support to her administration, to Vice -overnor Dennis “Delta” Pineda and to Board Member Gerome Tubig, president of the Liga ng Mga Barangay.
She said being unopposed in the gubernatorial and vice-gubernatorial race does not mean that they will be indolent in the performance of their duties. Instead, she added they will work double time to provide the needed services of less privileged Kapampangans.
In response, Mayor Balgan on behalf of the people here, extended her gratitude and appreciation to Governor Pineda whom she considered as “mother of the province”. (Joel P. Mapiles/Pampanga PIO)
