The projects unveiled on Monday include a barangay hall, P4.17 million; slope protection, P5.18 million; two drainage systems, P2.53 and P1.96 million, respectively; and, multi-purpose pavement, P2.46 million.
Lobregat said a P19- million worth archive building where all records of the city government will be kept and stored is also among the projects.
It will be constructed inside the compound of the City Abattoir, Lobregat said.
Other projects to be implemented in Barangay San Roque are Community Police Action Center (COMPAC), health center, center for the elderly, a three-storey 12-classroom building for the elementary school and a slope protect at the San Roque River, he said.
He said the COMPAC and health and elderly centers will be constructed in the newly-completed Barangay Hall compound that will make it a one-stop-shop government center.
The newly-completed Barangay Hall of San Roque sit on a 323 square meters property purchased by the city government.
Lobregat said the city government has invested some P38 million of infrastructure projects in Barangay San Roque within a period of five years or since 2007 until this year including those that are set to be implemented.
Lobregat stressed that the implementation of all these projects are made possible due to prudent and judicious spending of the city government’s resources.
Lobregat, who is serving on his third and last term, said he hopes that the next mayor will be somebody who has the same love and care and who places high priority and concern to the children, youth and women.
