A PORTION of the Larap road project in baranggay Calero has received a Php3 million funding from Senator Juan Ponce Enrile, it was learned this week.
An MWBuzz source said the money was sent by the office of the senator straight to the bank account of the baranggay.
The source said Enrile’s assistance is among some development funds committed to the municipality of Mambulao.
With the Php3 million, the municipal government is certain that the Larap road cementing project, which temporarily stopped just outside Parang, would soon cover the lane passing through baranggay Calero.
It costs at least Php5 million to build 1km of road, according to Mayor Dong Padilla.
However, Enrile’s assistance would be complemented by another Php1 million earmarked by the local government alongside donated road building materials that have been received so far.
Padilla said that the cementing of the Larap road will resume as soon as the dry season sets in.
