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)

LGU-Tacurong receives P2M for local roads management



A Special Allotment Release Order (SARO) of Php 2,033,993 has been released by the Department of Budget and Management to the City Government of Tacurong as its Special Local Roads Fund (SLRF) for Fiscal Year 2015.

The amount was in line with the timely completion and implementation of LGU-Tacurong’s road management projects for the year 2014.

The fund was presented by the DILG during the LRMPA meeting on September 3, 2015 at the Palm Bistro in New Isabela, Tacurong City.

In connection with this, DILG representatives from the central office and Region XII held a meeting with the LGU-Tacurong stakeholders on the improvements to the Local Roads Management Performance Assessment (LRMPA) tool.

The representatives were Mr. Miguel Hayag, Jr., Engr. Junius Baclig, Engr. Herminia Ontoy, and Mr. Alberto Sero.

The stakeholders, as represented by the heads of offices, were the City Engineering, Planning, BAC, Accounting, City Administrator, and Human Resource Management.

The LRMPA is a tool developed by the DILG to monitor and evaluate the capacity and performance of local government units on local road management. Using the LRMPA performance indicators, they will be able to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the LGUs on local roads management in order to effectively implement the necessary road developments.
