The 12th Sangguniang Panlungsod had the privilege of having a joint legislative session with the Barangay Council of Cabawan last June 26, 2015. Most of the concerns and issues raised by the Barangay Council of Cabawan were related to road and infrastructure problems. City Vice Mayor Jose Antonio S. Veloso, presiding officer of the 12th Sangguniang Panlungsod, had referred these issues to the Committee on Engineering and Public Works, under the leadership of Hon. Philipp S. Besas.
Hon. Besas sought the help of City Engineer, Engr. Pianicita S. Castolo, to shed light on the concerns raised by the Barangay Council of Cabawan.
Engr. Castolo one by one tackled the problems and gave input on the next possible action to help the barangay of Cabawan. Engr. Castolo said that Provincial Administrator Alfonso R. Damalerio, III, of the Provincial Government of Bohol had committed to undertake the repair and maintenance of the roads going to Bohol District Jail and Tagbilaran District Jail. Engr. Castolo promised that the City Engineering will work on the holes on the road that leads to Gawad Kalinga settlement. As for the damages on the access ramp where the culverts were washed away by the typhoon Senyang, this project will be undertaken by the Department of Public Works and Highways. The rest of the roads mentioned during the joint legislative session such as the road from Casa to Greenhouse and Bacareza St. will be subjected to usual city-wide road maintenance activities once the funds are available.
