Flooding and traffic are concerns that a developing LGU such as ours hopes to address urgently and effectively.
After the heavy rains brought forth by tropical depression Crising (no relation to me ?), I convened our Municipal Disaster Risk Reduction Council last week to assess flood prone areas, discuss measures taken by our public safety, traffic management, and engineering teams, and devise short term solutions working around our local budget.
Yesterday, I had a conference with representatives from the regional and district DPWH to discuss long term solutions for these areas whose national roads mostly fall under DPWH jurisdiction and for which there are existing and future projects.
We will also be implementing local measures to prevent the clogging of our waterways and traffic buildup, and we hope for the continued patience and support of the public as we continue strive for a progressive Liloan that is livable and sustainable.
