BACOLOD City Mayor-elect Evelio Leonardia led members of his transition team in inspecting various sites in the city less than a week before his administration takes over on June 30, a press release from his office said.
He was joined by both incoming Representative Greg Gasataya and Vice Mayor El Cid Familiaran.
The group checked the promenade at Negros Occidental High School, the Bacolod Public Plaza, and several other sites needing reconstruction and refurbishing.
They also inspected the Diamond Jubilee Memorial Tower at the plaza, which the Leonardia administration built in 2013 to commemorate the city’s 75th year.
“It is time to return this structure to its original intentions which is to celebrate the diamond milestone of the city,” Leonardia said. “Let us give this symbol of our creation as a city dignity and prestige.”
Other areas identified were the lighting up of New (Bacolod) Government Center, the clean-up and rehabilitation of the median islands, and strategic sidewalks along 6th Street and North Drive and on San Juan Street near the San Sebastian Cathedral.
