Catanduanes Rep. Cesar Sarmiento has committed to provide P1 million for the construction of streetlights in Brgy. Concepcion, Virac.

Sarmiento graced the formal opening of the Bagsakan Center in the said barangay last Sunday, where PB Anthony Arcilla asked for the solon’s support.

“Pormal nang binuksan ang Bagsakan Center sa Brgy. Concepcion nitong Linggo, Set. 23, 2018, malapit lang sa Virac Public Market, at sa kalagitnaan ng programa, humingi ng tulong si PB Anthony Arcilla kay Cong. Cesar Vergara Sarmiento upang magpatayo ng “Street Lights” para mas lalo pang mapaganda ang nasimulan nilang proyekto,” Sarmiento’s office said.

The chairman said that the project would cost P200,000 based on their rough estimates.

But the solon committed to provide more than what they asked for.

“Ayon kay PB Arcilla na maaaring umabot ng P200,000 pesos ang pagpapailaw base sa kanilang estimate,” said the solon’s office.

“Subalit sa talumpati ni Cong. CS di lang P200,000 pesos kundi P1 milyon na budget ang kanyang ipalalaan para maipatayo ang posibleng pinakamagandang street lights project ng isang barangay sa buong probinsya,” it added.

Present during the event were Atty. Jorge V. Sarmiento, Vice Mayor Arlene Arcilla representing Mayor Sam Laynes, PA Lemuel Surtida, among others.
