Present to support the event were Punong Barangay Doroteo Delicana and other barangay officials, Engr. Anuar P. Acop of DAR Region XII, Rhea Marie Betque of Provincial Agrarian Reform Office, and Mr. Freddie Delantar, ASBNHS Principal among others.
The farm to market road costs Php11 million, Php6 million of which was grant from the Italian Government while Php4 million was LGU counterpart.
