Mayor Honey and VM Yul Servo conducts another Kalinga sa Maynila
LACK of barangay hall was one of the problems raised by a barangay official when Mayor Maria Sheila “Honey” Lacuna-Pangan and Vice Mayor John Marvin “Yul Servo” Nieto conducted another “Kalinga sa Maynila” at the Sarmiento Covered Court in Barangay 592 on Wednesday.
Chairman Rulyn Abueva Rosabal of Bgry. 588 Zone 58 in Sta Mesa aired his predicament in providing fast, smooth and efficient services to his constituents due to lack of barangay hall which will serve as their office, meeting place for the Sangguniang Barangay and storage of office equipment.
“Sasamantalahin ko na po ang paghingi ng tulong sa lokal na pamahalaan lalu na po sa inyo, Mayora Honey Lacuna upang magkaroon kami ng barangay hall dahil hindi po namin magawang magtayo nito sa mismong kalsada o bangketa dahil magiging sagabal ito sa daloy ng trapiko at mga pedestrians,”Chairman Rosabal said.
He added that at present, he had to utilize his own garage and a tent as their temporary office which are not an appropriate office for providing good services to the people.
Mayor Honey in her response said the lack of barangay hall is a perennial problem of lots of barangay officials in the city since Manila has the highest number of barangays in the National Capital Region (NCR) with a total of 897 barangays.
“Kung gusto po ninyo, tulungan din ninyo kaming maghanap ng bakanteng lote sa inyong lugar na puwedeng pagtayuan ng barangay hall at kami na po ni Congressman Benny Abante ang sasagot sa mga gastusin para sa pagtatayo nito,” Mayor Honey Lacuna-Pangan told Chairman Rosabal.
It can be recalled that lack of barangay hall was the problem aired recently by one of Barangay Chairman in District II in Tondo but upon seeing an empty lot, Congressman Rolan Valeriano shouldered the expenses for the construction of the 3-story barangay hall.
