DUMAGUETE CITY, Nov. 18 (PIA) -- Zamboanguita Mayor Glenson Alanano is optimistic that the government's program to End Local Communist Armed Conflict (ELCAC) in his municipality will help solve the problem on insurgency and address poverty in the barangays.

In his welcome remarks during the launching of "Dagyawan sa Barangay: Talakayan ng Mamayan" in Zamboanguita, Alanano lauded the program saying that constituents in far-flung barangays have now direct access to government programs.

“This is a good program of the government kay ang gobyerno ug katawhan managhiusa aron makab-ot ang kahusay, kalinaw ug kalamboan ilabi na sa lagyo nga barangay (people and government will unite to achieve peace, order and development especially in the hinterlands)," he said.

The mayor expressed his gratitude to all government agencies and members of Negros Oriental Task Force (NOTC) ELCAC, to Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) Regional Director Leocadio Trovela as lead agency of ELCAC, and Department of Budget and Management through Regional Director Imelda Laceras who participated in the Dagyawan sa Barangay in their municipality.

At the Talakayan ng Mamayan, officials from the ten barangays namely, Calango, Lutoban, Malongcay Diot, Maluay, Mayabon, Nabago, Najandig, Nasig-id, Basak, and Poblacion raised common concerns and needs in their respective barangays to concerned government agencies such as installation of water pipes, construction of foot bridges, road cementing, road railings, street lights, lack of classrooms, need of rescue emergency vehicle, construction of drainage canal, irrigation, Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries (ARB) land titling, livelihood, and fertilizer for farmers.

During the discussion, representatives from concerned government agencies noted their concerns, assuring them that these will be brought to the provincial and regional task forces for proper action. (lpp/PIA7/Negros Oriental)
