The city government distributed cash assistance worth P3000 each to one hundred four (104) displaced families in Barangay Kalandagan due to the government’s Memorandum Circular 121-2019 or MC 121, which contains the infamous road clearing directive of the President.

The distribution was held on November 11 at the Tacurong City Cultural and Sports Center and was facilitated by the City Treasurer’s Office, City Planning and Development Coordinator’s Office, and the City Mayor’s Office.

The beneficiaries illegally constructed their homes within the road right of way and thus were forced to move out due to the implementation of the memorandum. To help ease their burden in finding or building their new homes, the city government, through the initiative of City Mayor Angelo ‘Roncal’ O. Montilla, voluntarily offered the cash assistance.
