ANGELES CITY -- The local government here held the blessing and inauguration of the new legislative building at the City Hall in Pulung Maragul, Tuesday.

Mayor Edgardo Pamintuan initiated the program with a ribbon-cutting ceremony, and was joined by Vice Mayor Vicky Vega-Cabigting, DILG Director Martin Flores Moral, and local city councilors.

The program was hosted by Councilors Max Sangil and Maricel Morales.

Pamintuan extended his gratitude to the city engineers for their steadfast action on the construction of the building.

“I am thankful to our city engineers, Don Dizon and Andy Dizon as they stood true to their promise of finishing this building this January,” Pamintuan said.

“This is another milestone for the city of Angeles because this project took years before it has finally come to life. I am very delighted that the legislative building was finished within the duration of my term as this will serve as another proof that we, Angeleños, are one and united in moving our city with one mission and one vision: to be one of the best cities in Central Luzon, if not in the whole country today,” he furthered.

Reverend Father Maynard Ocampo and Pastor Robert Miranda led the opening prayers as the government officials lit candles for the blessing of the legislative building.

Also present during the program were barangay captains, legislative staff, and other officials and employees of the local government.

After the program, the 16th Sangguniang Panlungsod of Angeles, headed by Vega-Cabigting, proceeded to the session hall where they immediately began their regular session.

The building is set to be expanded soon, to provide offices for the councilors, which will be located at the side of the legislative building.

The mayor believes that this development will enhance work and inspire the creation of better ordinances while extending better service to constituents. (AC-CIO with reports from Abigail Lavarias)
