With the Priority Development Assistant Fund of Cong. Rufus Rodriguez of this city’s Second District and Rep. Maximo Rodriguez of Party-list Abante Mindanao, construction and rehabilitation of roads, establishment of drainage systems, river dikes and flood-control dikes will start before the end of the year.
Almost all the barangays located along the shoreline and those near rivers and creeks will benefit from the more than P80 million worth of new projects.
