DAVAO ORIENTAL – Seventy newly installed street lights have been recently turned over by the Provincial Government to the village of Calapagan in Lupon town.

Funded under the Provincial Assistance to the Barangays for the year 2015, the Provincial Government spent about P200, 000.00 for the project with additional counterpart fund from the Barangay Local Government Unit.

Barangay Captain Jonel B. Delmonte thanked the Provincial Government, saying this street lighting project is already a big development for his barangay, especially in terms of peace and order. “This new lights will help us minimize criminal activities in our area,” he said.  

Placed along the national highway, he added that the street lighting project will provide ample light needed by residents and passersby, particularly motorists, thus, ensuring increased road safety.

Equipped with a backup generator, Delmonte said this street lights have sufficient supply of power that do not turn off even during blackouts. “We made sure to provide quality projects for our constituents.”

The residents thanked the Provincial Government for its constant support to the barangays, especially on remote areas, such as theirs.

Governor Corazon N. Malanyaon, who graced the turn over ceremony, said she hopes that this development, along with all other projects provided by the Provincial Government to the village of Calapagan, will last and help the residents.

Turned over during the 56th Founding Anniversary and 8th Pagsawitan Festival of Barangay Calapagan last October 5, 2015, the street lighting project was among the list of priority projects requested by the Barangay Council of Calapagan to the Provincial Government for funding.
