LGU clears roadside obstructions once more

After numerous attempts to clear out city roads of sidewalk obstructions, the Local Government Unit (LGU) of Tacurong has made yet another road verification to ensure the removal of roadside blockages such as poultry pens and other unnecessary structures that occupied the government’s right of way.

Fronted by the City Local Government Operations Officer Victoria Dolido, the city government engineers and representatives of Bureau of Fire Protection – Tacurong and Tacurong City Police Station carried out the inspection and the communication to the concerned citizens from the barangays of Poblacion, San Pablo and New Isabela yesterday, January 26, 2021.

This action made by the LGU and the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) bore positive responses and feedbacks from the populace. However, while previous entities issued with reminder and warning beforehand have vacated the roadside premises, some businesses like poultry-selling and machine shops have returned after quite some time to occupy the sidewalks again.

They were once again advised to remove their businesses out of the highways as soon as possible.

Obtruding electrical and cable wires, especially in the area of Habitat Subdivision in Brgy. San Pablo, were also looked upon by the DILG for a possible re-adjustment because they seem to hinder highway openings.

Matters relative to this observation done by the LGU and DILG were thereafter brought to City Mayor Angelo O. Montilla’s attention and possible actions and sanctions to be issued were then discussed on a meeting.

With the revisit of existing ordinances regarding highway obstructions, Tacurongnons can soon expect another round of roadside clearing and road check-up activities from the LGU and by then, a penalty fee will be imposed on violators.

Meanwhile, residents with businesses and houses affected by the clearing will be subjected to a relocation by the LGU.

The road clearing is the LGU’s response to President Rodrigo Duterte’s call to execute the government’s right of way and clear out possible sidewalk obstructions that could endanger the lives of the citizens and hamper the smooth flow of traffic. (DEC, LGU-TacInfo)

City Mayor Angelo O.

Likewise, two of the children’s parents also shared their message of thanks to the LGU and partner-stakeholders for assisting their children’s medications and operations. One of the beneficiaries of the LGU and Tebow Cure Hospistal, Ara Jane Ablan, also offered an intermission number to the PWDs and guests.

LGU-Tacurong goes full on with wheelchair distribution for PWDs

The Local Government Unit (LGU) of Tacurong has amplified its assistance towards Persons with Disabilities (PWDs) with a two – day wheelchair and food pack distribution on December 15-16, 2020.

Spearheaded by City Mayor Angelo O. Montilla and City First Lady Cora Montilla, the LGU delivered thirty (30) wheelchairs and food packs right on the front doors of identified PWDs from nine (9) barangays — New Lagao, Buenaflor, EJC Montilla, New Isabela, Griño, San Rafael, Tina, San Emmanuel and San Pablo.

Along with the wheelchairs and food packs, some recipients were also subjected for further support due to their tragic situations.

For instance, following Mayor Montilla’s instruction, 22-year-old Jeron Jurilla of Brgy. Griño will be scheduled by the City Social Welfare and Development Office (CSWDO) to a Physical Therapy for his involuntary stiffness and spasms due to Cerebral Palsy.

On the other hand, 61-year-old Lucia Delmo, a stroke patient, has been bedridden for one (1) year on a bed placed near a pigpen inside their half-roofed house. Seeing this, Mayor Montilla tapped New Isabela’s Punong Barangay, Hon. Juaren Javier, to provide roofing and other housing materials for Lucia’s family. He also promised them a sack of rice to aid their daily needs.

Likewise, Mayor Montilla also pledged a sack of rice to 63-year-old Joeffrey Ferje of Brgy. San Pablo who is enduring a Parkinson’s disease for ten (10) years now. A brand-new electric fan will also be given to him to ease his difficulty of breathing and replace his old, frameless fan.

So far, the LGU has reached forty-two (42) out of the fifty (50) identified PWDs including the twelve (12) who previously received their wheelchairs and food packs last November 27, 2020.

These are only some of the LGU-assisted programs in the city for PWDs initiated by Mayor Montilla. Next year, a larger number of PWDs will be catered and served especially for their medication needs because the LGU anticipates the completion of the People’s Dialysis Center in Tacurong.

Tacurong City to start Busog Lusog Talino Year 4; welcomes new school partner

One hundred twenty days of healthy and free lunch for schoolchildren in Tacurong City will start on August 30, 2016 under the Busog Lusog Talino School Feeding Program or BLT.

School Year 2016-2017 is the fourth year of BLT implementation in Tacurong. To mark this milestone, the City Government decided to adopt a new school for BLT—the Lancheta-Magallon Elementary School in Barangay Lancheta.

LMES is the new addition to the BLT family previously composed of six elementary schools: Dr. Manuel Griño Memorial Central School in Brgy. Griño; Tina Elementary School in Brgy. Tina; J. Hector Lacson Elementary School in Brgy. Calean; Ma. Montilla Memorial Elementary School in Brgy. EJC Montilla; Josue Alcasid Central School in Brgy. Baras; and Lourdes Pama Elementary School in Brgy. Rajah Muda. In each school, 40 undernourished children will be fed for 120 school days.

In preparation for the new BLT year, the LGU had conducted food safety seminars for parents and food handlers in each of the seven schools from August 23-30, 2016.

In the last three years, Jollibee Group Foundation and LGU-Tacurong engaged in cost-sharing scheme to sustain BLT in the city. “This year, only the city government will fund the BLT implementation in the seven schools,” according to Mayor Lina Montilla.  “We want to continue BLT because we have seen good results. This is our own little way of helping the Department of Education in reducing dropout rates,” the mayor added.

Busog Lusog Talino School Feeding Program in the City of Tacurong is also supported by private and civic organizations. By Jez Billano-Fabreag
