Organic Rice Agriculture Technology, tinalakay sa Brgy. Lancheta

Sa patuloy na pagsisikap ng Office for the Agricultural Services ng Lungsod ng Tacurong na hikayatin ang mga lokal na magsasaka na tangkilikin ang organikong pagtatanim ng palay, isang Field Day ang isinagawa sa Kalingaw Farm, Brgy. Lancheta, para talakayin ang Organic Rice Agriculture Technology, Enero 21, 2022.

Isa sa mga ipinakitang pamamaraan ng organikong pag-aalaga ng palay ay ang paggamit ng Black Liquid Smoke bilang natural na pesticide. Ito ay isang organikong likido mula sa katas ng damo at iba-ibang pananim na pinausukan para maglabas ng itim na dagta na siya namang gagamitin para ibinyag sa mga pananim.

Ayon kay Estaniel Segocio, may-ari ng Kalingaw Farm at isang Organic Farm Practitioner, ang pamamaraang ito ay natutunan niya mula sa Don Bosco Cooperative – isang kompanya na tumutulong sa kanila na palaguin ang organic farming.

Natalakay rin ang Vermicomposting Technology na isa ring organikong pamamaraan ng pagtatanim gamit ang dumi ng mga uod bilang pataba.

Pinangunahan ni Acting City Agriculturist Ivan Gerry G. Arazagon ang nasabing Field Day at pinangasiwaan din nito ang isang open forum para malayang makapagtanong o makapagpahayag ng saloobin at mungkahi ang mga magsasaka.

Bilang kahalili ni City Mayor Lino O. Montilla, dumalo rin sa pagtitipon sina City Councilors Carlos Borromeo P. Segura Jr. at Geronimo Arzagon para magbigay ng suporta.

Kasama rin bilang panauhin ang iilan sa mga Agricultural Technologist ng iba’t ibang barangay ng lungsod. ((DEC, Tac-Info)

Organic Black Rice ang pangunahing produkto ni Ginoong Segocio sa 1.6 ektaryang taniman nito sa Brgy. Lancheta.

Mayroon na ring Good Agriculture Practice (GAP) Certification ang Kalingaw Farm, patunay na sa organikong pagtatanim, dekalikad at ligtas sa kalusugan ang mga produkto ng nasabing taniman. (DEC, Info-LGU)

Kauna-unahang animal pound sa lalawigan, nagbukas sa lungsod ng Tacurong

Sa isang pagbabasbas na pinangasiwaan ni Rev. Fr. Salvador Robles, DCC, opisyal nang pinasinayaan ng Veterinary Services Office ng Lungsod ng Tacurong ang Animal Pound Facility sa Brgy. Kalandagan, Biyernes, Enero 21, 2022.
Layunin sa pagbubukas ng naturang proyekto ay sugpuin ang pagdami ng mga gumagalang aso sa mga pampublikong lugar sa lungsod at mabawasan ang kaso ng animal bites at rabies.
Ayon kay Dr. Yegor Ysmael B. Kadil, Assistant City Veterinarian, ang mga mahuhuling aso ay ikukulong sa pasilidad sa loob ng tatlong araw at hihintayin na kunin ng may-ari. Kapag wala namang lumitaw na may-ari at umangkin sa mga nahuli, maghihintay ng labing-isang araw ang City Veterinary Services Office upang maghanap ng pwedeng umampon sa mga nahuling aso.
Ayon naman kay Provincial Veterinarian Dr. Edwin Nacito ng Sultan Kudarat, ang naturang facility ay ang kauna-unahang animal pound sa lalawigan. May kakayahan itong magkulong ng dalawampo hanggang tatlumpong aso.
Inihayag din ni Dr. Nacito ang kanyang suporta sa proyektong ito. Sa katunayan, nangako siya na magbibigay ng sampung karagdagang animal cages para sa animal pound, at buwanang supply na isang sakong pagkain para sa mga aso.
Ang suporta ng Pamahalaang Lungsod ng Tacurong at mensahe ni City Mayor Lino O. Montilla ay ipinarating naman ni City Councilor Welson Ferrer na siyang humalili sa pagdalo sa pagbabasbas. (FAR, Tac-LGUInfo)

MAYOR LINO UNDERSCORES AN ‘ECONOMICALLY EMPOWERED TACURONG’ IN SOCA 2022

Hovering through the setbacks of the COVID-19 dilemma for 2 years, City Mayor Lino O. Montilla punctuated an economic outlook for Tacurong – by sustaining the city’s local economy through infrastructures and investors – in his 1st State of the City Address (SOCA) during the Formal Opening of the Regular Session of the 8th Sangguniang Panlungsod of Tacurong, January 19, 2022.

 

Bent on optimizing the city’s economic growth, Mayor Lino believes that infrastructure buildup will boost job creations, employment, and constituents’ reception of services which will all later on fuel the economy of Tacurong to thrive amid the crisis.

 

After recounting the fluctuating COVID-19 crisis in the city and his avid call for vaccination and boosters, Mayor Lino then highlighted some of the ongoing constructions and developments he assumed and continued from the previous administration of the late City Mayor Angelo O. Montilla.

 

One of which is the People’s Dialysis & Diagnostic Center which is currently in its Phase 3 of completion.

 

Another is the Development of Pioneer or Veterans Avenue in Brgy. Poblacion for the benefit of all the TODAs in the city. It will also serve as one of the food stations in the city to help and encourage local vendors.

 

Underway also in the city is the Redevelopment of Magsaysay Park Project under the Green, Green, Green Program of the Department of Budget and Management that is already at 67 percent.

 

On the other hand, the thoroughfares of Tacurong are already well-lit with the near completion of the P50-million solar streetlight Mayor Angelo has started. This is accompanied by the center island project of the Department of Public Works and Highways that also provides brighter illumination to the national highways of the city.

 

Mayor Lino also stressed that to ramp up a better road experience for the motorists by alleviating traffic in the main district highways, the 13-kilometer East Bypass Road under the ROLL IT program of the Department of Trade and Industry is already at 52 percent.

 

This is coupled with the ongoing West Bypass Road Project concretion. Soon, there will be a circumferential road connecting the west and east bypass roads that will function as diversion roads for trucks and other heavy vehicles in the city.

 

Farm-to-market roads are also included in Mayor Lino’s checklist for development as the LGU continues to dispense annual city aid to our barangays for their road repair and concreting projects.

 

As for the LGU’s infrastructures in its vicinity, Mayor Lino has greenlighted additional funding for the remaining furnishes of the new Executive and Legislative Buildings.

 

Further, Mayor Lino stressed that one marker of the revival of the local economy is the booming business sector. In 2021, 2,504 business registrants were logged with 426 of these belonging to new registrations.

 

Mayor Lino also elatedly conveyed that Tacurong has taken in its arms bigger business entities such as the NCCC Davao which has begun setting up its Hypermarket behind Dragon Gasoline Complex in Brgy. New Isabela.

 

This is just in addition to the presence of Robinsons and Gaisano malls which have already acquired properties for their structures in the city as well as the looming possibility of SM Malls also entering Tacurong.

 

As for Mayor Lino’s self-initiative, on the progressive lookout are the installation of a Digital Traffic System; the formation of a Super Health Center to bolster the existing City Health Office; the creation in Brgy. Calean of an Eco-Tourism Park, as well as a 20-bed Balay Silangan as a temporary rehabilitation shelter for drug offenders; the construction of a 6-court badminton facility inside Tacurong Pilot Elementary School; and the placement of 270 solar panels on the roof of Tacurong City Cultural and Sports Center intended for the whole city hall building’s power supply.

 

In conclusion to his SOCA, Mayor Lino articulated his earnest appreciation to SP Tacurong, his colleagues, the employees of the city government, all stakeholders, and most especially the people of Tacurong for the continued support and unity to the LGU and his leadership.

 

City Vice Mayor and Presiding Officer of the 8th SP Lalaine J. Montilla also responded to the Local Chief Executive’s statement by citing the existing Executive-Legislative Agenda or ELA which has assisted both branches to execute unified decisions towards the employment of better services and programs for Tacurongnons.

RESPONSE TO THE STATE OF THE CITY ADDRESS OF THE LCE

Hon. Lalaine J. Montilla

Vice Mayor/Presiding Officer, 8th Sangguniang Panlungsod

Foremost, we, members of the 8th Sangguniang Panlungsod, convey our gratitude to our Mayor, Hon. Lino O. Montilla for granting our request of delivering his State of the City Address within the halls of the Sanggunian in time with the formal opening of this year’s regular session. We are deeply honored by your presence.

 

Second, the members of the Sanggunian would like to extend our gratitude to our mayor for approving the allocation of funds intended for the progressive construction of the Legislative Building, the venue of our activity today. We are happy that for this year, the mayor has allocated additional funds amounting to P20 million for the completion of this building that also houses other offices of the city government.

 

The Sangguniang Panlungsod, as legislative body of the city, is mandated by the Local Government Code of 1991 to legislate laws which shall ensure the efficient and effective delivery of basic services and facilities as provided for under Section 17 of the Code. It is also incumbent upon us, members of the city council, to work hand in hand with the executive department with the aim of looking after and promoting the welfare of the public we committed to serve.

 

The official engagement of the Sanggunian with the executive started from the crafting of the Executive-Legislative Agenda or ELA back in 2019. Of course, we already know that our LGU’s ELA contains the major development thrusts and priorities of the LGU mutually developed and agreed upon by both the executive and legislative branches for the three-year term of office. It’s conceived as a powerful vehicle for effective local governance.

 

But while the ELA provided us with the unified action towards a desired goal, there are unforeseen circumstances that could possibly derail implementation of plans. The rage of COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted the operations of all governments around the world, from the international community down to the national and local levels of governance. Our city was not spared by that disruption. The early part of 2020 made our local government unit scrambling to face the dire challenges brought by the onset of COVID-19. We were all caught flat-footed. As the pandemic rages on, the people relied almost everything on how our local government would respond to the situations. That was the moment that tested the relationship of both the executive and legislative departments of our city.

 

We showed the public that we were up to the challenge. Both branches of our local government worked hand in hand during those critical times. The Sanggunian passed and enacted the necessary legislations needed by the executive to address the challenges of the pandemic. The people saw our local officials leading us at the frontlines of the battle. And we also saw how the pandemic claimed the lives of our loved ones, including our dear mayor. Although devastating to all of us, Mayor Roncal’s death served as a bond that united all of us more.

 

We are now on year two of this pandemic and more than ever, it’s the time to work harder to restart our economy and navigate the new normal. We are pleased that, based on the report rendered today by Mayor Lino Montilla, our Local Government Unit has done its best in slowly rebooting our economy beginning last year. We are pleased that apart from the interventions our LGU had done to cope with the impact of the pandemic healthwise, we never put in the sideline other development programs and projects that needed to be implemented.

 

As we face this new year, we are also pleased by the development programs our executive department plan to undertake. In behalf of the Sanggunian, and as the presiding officer of this august body, we are pledging our support to the plans and programs of our city mayor by passing and enacting the necessary legislations needed. The term of our elected local officials will officially end on June 30, and despite the looming campaign period, we, members of your Sanggunian, commit that we will continue to do our job as legislators and public servants.

 

Madamo nga salamat. Maayong aga. May God bless us all!
