The newly-renovated barangay hall or People’s Hall and senior citizens’ building of Brgy. Mabini, were inaugurated during the blessing and turn-over ceremony last January 11, 2022, with Rev. Fr. Guerrero Robero officiating.
City Mayor Salvador G. Escalante Jr., together with councilors Warren Zaragoza, Cedric John Olvido, and Denia Hinolan, led the cutting of ribbon for the two buildings, and turned over the symbolic key to Barangay Captain Rosevil Villarin.
According to Brgy. Captain Villarin, the repair and improvement of barangay Hall was funded by City Mayor Salvador G. Escalante Jr., in the amount of 6 million pesos, while the construction of senior citizens’ building phase I, amounting to P800,000.00, was funded by former councilor Pal Guanzon, and the additional of 1 million pesos was financed by the city government.
Villarin also said the new dump truck and canter were donated to their barangay to help fast-track various projects. He added that the paving of farm-to-market roads in sitios Cotcot, Igcamalig, and Kanabawan with almost 3 million pesos appropriation will be implemented this year.
“These are all part of the reward given to Barangay Mabini for people’s outstanding support to our city officials through straight voting during the local election in 2019”, Villarin added. Among those who witnessed the turn-over ceremony were City Mayor Salvador G. Escalante Jr., councilors Cedric John Olvido and Denia Puey Hinolan, DILG Officer Shalimar Jane Tabuena, City Treasurer Ma.
