Collado, CPA commended the efforts of both the contractor and the LGU for a job well done. “I am once again encouraging you to propose another project under DA-PRDP because you are doing a good job in the project implementation of the five subprojects. Together, we will make Malitbog a better place so no farmers, students, teachers, or even residents will suffer from a bad road.” Collado also cited some benefits emerging from the newly constructed road. “I’ve heard that one kilometer away from the end of this road, there is a nearby waterfalls that is becoming known lately in social media. We are glad that the road can be of service to help you boost not just the farming industry, but the tourism industry in Malitbog as well.” He added.Osmundo N. Dela Rosa, Mayor of Malitbog, said in his message that he couldn’t be any prouder with this achievement. “We were able to put up five FMRs for the people of Malitbog.
