(February 21, 2012) Happy and satisfied Tacurongnons lauded the local government during the launching of the second cycle of the City Hall sa Barangay which was conducted in Barangay Baras on Friday, February 17.
            Nanay Carmen, 72, who farms a land that is not her own, expressed her gratitude after availing once again a free medical check-up from the City Health Services.
            “Nagapasalamat gid ako kay wala nila kami ginapabay-an. Gina-asikaso gid kami sang maayo sang gobyerno ta,” she said with teary eyes.
            Additionally, she commended the efforts of every government employee who assisted her all throughout her stay in the venue.
            “Buot sila tanan kag garespeto gid. Han-ay ang pag-entertain nila sa amon. Buot gid sila, wala na ko mahambal,” she said.
            Nanay Carmen, together with her daughter and granddaughters were just few of the hundreds of residents who went to Barangay Baras Gymnasium to once again benefit from this project of the city government of Tacurong.
            With the evident joy of each resident who involved themselves in the project, Barangay Baras Chairman Ivan Cerbo as well stated his appreciation.
            “Sa tanan nga city officials nga ginapangunahan sa aton nga palangga nga mayor, pasalamat gid ang amon nga katawhan sa barangay sa bulig sang City Hall sa Barangay sa mga katawhan dire sa amon. Sa mga city officials, heads of offices, kag sa tanan-tanan nga city hall employees, madamo gid nga salamat sa inyo tanan,” Cerbo said.
            The City Hall sa Barangay delivers the services of every local government office to its constituents by intently piercing through each barangay in the city. Among the services offered in this undertaking are free medical consultation and medicine, free dental services (with tooth extraction), free haircut, vaccination and castration of dogs and farm animals, legal assistance, birth registration, pre-listing for PhilHealth membership, distribution of seeds and seedlings, and consultation with the city officials.
            City Hall sa Barangay was first implemented last February, 2011 and it proudly finished the conveyance of services to 20 baranagays until the end of the said year. This year, the target remains the same. And every Tacurongnon could expect an abiding love for public service by the city officials and employees.
            “Ang programa sa aton nga city government, ang City Hall sa Barangay, natapos na ‘tong last year… subong second cycle ini. So ini, padayon nga programa sang aton nga palangga nga city mayor, kag kami nagasuporta gid kami kay nakita namon, damo gid ang maserbisyuhan nga mga pumuluyo naton dire sa siyudad sang Tacurong,” City Councilor Atty. Cirilo Flores said.
           
            Confirmations of positive feedback with this activity are the visits to the City Hall sa Barangay sites of different local governments including that of LGU Isulan and LGU Koronadal. This is a manifestation that they would also want to conduct the same action in order to establish what the city government of Tacurong has already achieved for its effective public service to its constituents.
