Samal, Bataan — This agricultural town will implement the rehabilitation of three idled dams worth P70 million to irrigate ricefields, here.
Mayor Gene Malibiran-dela Fuente said that alongside the rehabilitation of the three dams, the city government is also securing funds for the construction of a new municipal hall for P50 million.
“We are very thankful to Cong. Coco Nograles (Party-list) for his trust and support to Samal by providing us the much-needed fund for our new town hall,” said Dela Fuente.
She said the old town hall building will be demolished to pave the way for a new and modern municipal hall that will better represent the fast development and progress that has swept this once-sleepy town.
“Samal is now shining and fast developing,” she said.
The mayor said another P50-million project is now being implemented for the provincial road from San Juan all the way to Roman Highway which is now wider and concreted.
The lady mayor expressed gratitude to PBA Party-list Rep. Jericho “Koko” Nograles, her ally in Congress, for the special attention to the development projects of Samal town,
