THE Local Utilities Water Administration (LUWA) has allocated P150 million water project for eight villages in Pagbilao, Quezon.

This was announced on Tuesday by Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) Undersec. for barangay affairs Martin Diño during a Barangay Consultative Assembly held at Brgy. Polo, here, where the latter was the guest speaker.

Diño, a former village chief in Quezon City said in his speech that the P150 M water project was allocated by LUWA Administrator Guiling Mamondiong upon the request of village chief Arnel Amandy of Brgy. Ibabang Polo where two of the province’ three giant power plants are situated.

Saying Amandy is a good friend who is always present at his office like a “fly” doing follow ups for his proposed projects and programs is a clear example of a good leader one can rely on especially during this pandemic season.

“Si Kapitan Amandy na aking kainigan ay parang langaw na palagi sa aking opisina at nagpa- follow up ng kanyang mga program at proyektong pangkaunlran at serbisyong panlipunan. Kaya naman hanga ako sa kanyang kasipagan at katapatan sa serbisyong kanyang ibinibigay sa mamamayan. Siya ang isang halimbawa ng lider na inyong maasahan lalo na sa panahong ito ng pandemya”, said Diño.

He said this prompted him to accompany Amandy to Mamondiong who eventually vowed to allocate the said amount for the water system of Barangays Ibabang Polo, Ilayang Polo, Silangang Malicboy, Kanlurang Malicboy, Ilayang.Palsabangon, Ibabang Palsabangon, Binahaan and Pinagbayanan.

Also present during the assembly was former Quezon governor Eddie Rodriguez who pushed for the construction of the first power plant in Brgy. Polo during the time of then President Fidel Ramos where the country had experience power shortage.
