Two hundred twenty young Tacurongnons who are either displaced from work or currently unemployed benefited from a temporary employment under the Tulong Panghanapbuhay para sa Ating Displaced/Disadvantaged Workers (TUPAD) of the Department of Labor and Employment.

The DOLE-funded job program amounting to P751,000.00 was materialized through the initiative of Sangguniang Kabataan Federation of Tacurong City under its president, Maria Cristina Duadua, with the help of the Local Youth Development Office of the city government.

The SK Chairpersons of the 20 barangays were the ones tasked to identify and select the qualified beneficiaries for the program.

Orientation and profiling of qualified beneficiaries were already done in four clustered areas and facilitated by the DOLE Sultan Kudarat Field Office, LGU City PESO, and the SK Federation.

Under the TUPAD, each of the beneficiaries will receive wages amounting to P3,360 in exchange of a ten-day work in their respective barangays.

Another benefit each beneficiary will get from the DOLE TUPAD is to have the opportunity of being freely enrolled to and covered by GSIS Group Personal Accidental Insurance for a period of one year.

In consideration of the current community quarantine restrictions, the nature of work will be confined to disinfection and sanitation of certain areas in their barangays or other similar work that would avoid mass gathering. (LGU Information)

Tacurong City to begin COVID-19 vaccination for health frontliners next week

Tacurong City is set to receive its first batch of COVID-19 vaccines, tentatively on Saturday, March 6, and will begin inoculation on Monday.

During the Vaccination Process and Simulation meeting on March 3, Dr. Giovanni Deles, City Health Officer, and Dr. Mercedes Manansala, Department of Health (DOH)- Sultan Kudarat representative, reported to City Mayor Angelo ‘Roncal’ Montilla that the city will be given 300 doses of Sinovac vaccine as the first batch, intended for medical frontliners as they are a priority to be vaccinated.

St. Louis Hospital, being a COVID-19 referral hospital in the city, will be given the 300 doses so they can begin the vaccination of their medical workers beginning March 8. DOH has approved the hospital’s 5th floor area as their vaccination venue and will cater to 50 recipients per day.

The next batches of vaccines will be given to the rest of the identified hospitals and the local government unit (LGU) in order to vaccinate the other priority groups in the city such as the senior citizens, indigent population, and uniformed personnel.

The vaccination process was also laid out at the meeting by the City Health Office (CHO) spearheaded by Dr. Emilyn Nepucpan and Nurse Gina Ramiscal.

As per approved plan by the LGU and DOH, the City Cultural and Sports Center will be the assigned vaccination venue of the priority, pre-determined recipients from the 20 barangays.

The assigned vaccinators will be composed of 4 teams from the CHO. Each team will cater to 50 recipients per day resulting to 200 vaccinations daily.

The venue’s floor plan will be designed to be conducive and safe for all the steps of the vaccination process.

The City Engineering Office and City Disaster Risk Reduction Management Office will be in-charged of the construction while the General Services Office and the City Budget Office shall ensure the necessary supplies of the vaccination efforts.

Meanwhile, the Tacurong City PNP headed by PLT COL JOAN MAGANTO, Joint Task Force Talakudong headed by COL JOEL MAMON, and the Tacurong City – Bureau of Fire Protection headed by SINSP RUPERT CHRISTIAN G BALICOL will provide security and will help ensure that health protocols are followed.

All doses of vaccines that will be received by the city government and will be stored at the LGU’s cold storage facility located at a secured spot at the city hall compound, complete with airconditioning and a backup generator in case of power interruption.

Meanwhile, SUKELCO, through its representative Mark Albert Daulo, has extended its full support to the city’s vaccination efforts and ensured power will be sustained unless in case of fortuitous events or scheduled interruptions, in which case, the electric cooperative has committed to exert full effort in re-establishing power as soon as possible.

MAYOR MONTILLA CITES DEVELOPMENT PLANS IN SOCA 2021

At the formal opening of the 8th Sangguniang Panlungsod (SP) Regular Session on February 3, 2021, City Mayor Angelo O. Montilla rendered his State of the City Address and tackled the city governmentโ€™s development plans for Tacurong with utmost attention to COVID-19.

Mayor Angelo unravelled at the Tacurong City Cultural and Sports Center the P20-million vaccination plan of the Local Government Unit (LGU) of Tacurong as the top priority project in the advent of this pandemic. This allotment could be augmented to vaccinate a bigger target population.

Aside from the two existing isolation facilities in Brgy. Upper Katungal, two more isolation facilities funded by the Department of Health (DOH) and the Office for Civil Defense are underway to house more returning local residents and OFWs.

Additionally, the P27.5-million Peopleโ€™s Dialysis Center in the city is on track to operate in 2022 before Mayor Angeloโ€™s term ends. Adjacent to this, P14.9-million additional budget has been allocated for its laboratory machines and equipment.

On the other hand, the installation of the P10-million solar streetlights for the city streets is complete. The P50-million- national government funded solar streetlights for the national highways are also to be put in place in the first quarter of 2021.

Moreover, the finalization of the P92-million public market redevelopment proposal and the P5-million fuel depot at the public terminal for LGU transportsโ€™ consumption are also bound to be finished.

The multi-purpose executive building for the City Mayorโ€™s Office personnel has already obligated P16 million of its P31-million construction funds. Once finished, Mayor Angelo will site his office on the ground floor to draw himself closer to the publicโ€™s concerns and suggestion. Meanwhile, the construction of the P50-million multi-purpose legislative building is 50% done.

The acquisition of heavy equipment by the LGU these past few months has also been apparent to ramp up the implementation of infrastructure projects especially the ones โ€˜By Administrationโ€™.

This project will cascade down to the 20 barangays through the creation of a Special Project Unit Team, wherein, 2 units of 6-wheeler dump trucks, 1 unit grader, 1 unit road roller or pison, 1 manlift, and 1 unit payloader will be on the roster for the barangay road maintenance programs.

Mayor Montilla also updated the people on the two significant legislations he sought upon taking over the mayoralty in 2019.

First, the ordinance โ€˜Adopting the Fair Market Value for General Revision of Real Propertiesโ€™ has already been approved by both the city council and the Sangguniang Panlalawigan and will be carried out by the City Assessorโ€™s Office this March.

The second ordinance, Revision of the City Revenue Code enacted in 2011, is eyed for approval within the first quarter of 2021.

Mayor Angelo also took pride when Tacurong City became one of the very few LGUs in the region to exceed their tax collection target when it collected P131.3 million last year.

Meanwhile, this yearโ€™s Business One Stop Shop (BOSS) amassed a sum of P16, 520,811 and logged 2,158 business establishment registrations.

The estimated annual budget for the city this 2021 is at P736 million with 81% or P601.5 million coming from the Internal Revenue Allotment (IRA). To lower the dependency rate of Tacurong from IRA, three big projects are on the line: a septage facility, a toxic waste facility, and a sanitary landfill.

Soon, at the 18.2-hectare land in Barangay Kalandagan recently acquired by the LGU, these projects will be erected to generate greater income for the city government.

As Mayor Montillaโ€™s speech ended, he conveyed his profound gratitude to the collaborative support of the various partner[1]stakeholders, offices, and especially of the people of the city to his visions for Tacurong. Finally, he called on for the continuous unity of everyone in magnifying the common good for the city.

As a reply, City Vice Mayor Lino O. Montilla, presiding officer of the SP, assured that Mayor Montillaโ€™s policies and programs will be rallied with support by the legislative branch. (DEC, LGU-TacInfo)
