The Sangguniang Panlungsod in Dumaguete has approved more than P10 million in funding requests from the office of the city mayor during its regular session on Tuesday. {{more}}

Approved for funding is the P7,450,000 budget for the purchase of various heavy equipment. These include a big backhoe, big bulldozer for the rechanneling of Banica river and a small backhoe for the declogging of canals all over Dumaguete.

Also approved is an appropriation of P1,530,000 for the proposed concreting of road shoulders and drainage improvement of S.L. Teves road in Calindagan. This is in preparation for the planned construction of a city-run college at the back of the Dumaguete City High School.

To improve the collection of garbage in Dumaguete, the city council has also approved the mayor’s request of P1.1 million for the purchase of two mini dumptrucks. These dumptrucks may also be used to haul declogged materials from the canals.

The contract services of 41 security guards in the amount of P317,650 was also approved.

However, the city council has deferred action on the mayor’s request of P300,000 for the initial funding for the fabrication of number plates for buildings and houses in Dumaguete due to unanswered queries from council members.

It was learned that an ordinance of similar nature was already passed in 1985 and in 2009 an appropriation ordinance was approved for the purchase of number plates. (PNA/JGallarde)
