The Municipal and Barangay Local Government Unit of Siocon joined the Barangay Sub-project Management Committee (BSPMC) on the ground-breaking ceremony of the 300 linear meter Road Concreting with Slope Protection sub-project at Sitio Tabuk, Makiang, Siocon, Zamboanga del Norte on April 8, 2019.

The said sub-project is under NCDDP Cycle 4 implementation of Kapit-Bisig Laban sa Kahirapan-Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services (Kalahi-CIDSS) with a total cost of Php3, 011,346.00.

The community sees the need for road concreting since most of the people who lives in Sitio Tabuk has been isolated due to inaccessible road condition. The completion of this sub-project is expected to create opportunity for farmers to carry out products to Poblacion and provide ease in access to basic social services for the community in Tabuk.

Barangay Makiang has also been a recipient of 80 linear meter Drainage Canal for cycle 1 with a combined KC grant and Local Cash Counterpart of Php730,367.00, Ricemill Building with Equipment for cycle 2 at Php1,333,406.00, and 2 unit 2 classroom High School building for cycle 3 at Php3,180,524.

Gikan 1st cycle hangtud 4th cycle kame na prioritized maong daku kaayo mi ug pasalamat sa Kalahi-CIDSS sa DSWD ug sa suporta nga gihatag usab sa MLGU ug BLGU para ma mugna kining amuang mga projects”.

(We are happy to volunteer with Kalahi despite the difficulties on numerous trainings, with our responsibilities as volunteers sometimes we set aside our work, but we’re happy that were able to help our barangay. We were prioritized from 1st cycle to 4th cycle that is why we are very much appreciative on Kalahi-CIDSS, of DSWD and the support provided by MLGU and BLGU to realize these projects, said Villaluna).
