Infrastructure Projects in Panglao, Bohol

In the last two years, Panglao has allocated more than P15 million and is expected to gradually put in more to complete a major facelift in the town’s economic landscape with its priority vertical infrastructure it funded in the last two years.

The town under Mayor Benedicto Alcala and Evangeline Lazaro has consistently allocated millions annually for the continued work of the town market renovation.

In 2010, Panglao put in P3 million for the construction of the public market block tiendas, a move supported by the Annual Investment Plan, according to Planning and Development Officer Jovencia Asilo.

The fund was a part of the P7.9 million priority program development funded out of the accumulated 20% Internal Revenue Allotment fund for 2010, explains Alcala, who has been a leading believer in stirring up local economy by enhancing local trade and industry.

By 2011, the town investment council again allocated P2 million for the town market construction, its works now on a substantial accomplishment rate.

The town identified some nine priority projects to be funded by the 20% development fund, the public market still ranking high with 25% of the prioritized allocation getting into it, Alcala, who sits as president in the municipal investment council added.

Already an established trade center for goods and services catering to the beach communities where tourists converge, Panglao Public Market has finally had its most overdue rehabilitation, an old sore government building in a clearly rapidly altering economic landscape in Bohol.

While it is not yet certain if the town continues to stash in more funds for the full completion of the town trade center this year, the people who used to occupy the front stalls hope that they could reclaim their places as soon.

Also in the 2010 budget, Panglao allocated P2 million for the construction of a Multi-purpose Building that would be the hub for the town health services, disaster response action center and fire department base.

Now a visible building located beside the town hall, the Multi-purpose building has allowed the local government to gain enough working space for its numerous tasks expected of them by its constituents.

Two other multi-purpose buildings were also funded form the 2011 20% development fund, the mayor adds.

Barangays Tangnan and Bil-isan have each been apportioned half a mil of funds for such in their respective barangay centers, Asilo shared.

Another big investment the town engaged into is this year’s P1M Municipal Health Center which now rises beside the Municipal Fire Station.

Now, work is a-frenzy as Maghuyop Construction puts up the massive posts and beams to support the construction of a health facility aptly called “Tambalanan” that would soon serve the health and medical service requirements of the Panglaoanons, Jairus Fuderanan, a staff at the mayor’s office said during an ocular inspection.

This year, the town also witnessed the concreting of Cloma Street, a Municipal Road, which the town leaders prioritized not just for its critical role in the enhancing local accessibility.

It should also be taken as our tribute to a notable Panglaoanon who made it to international history as a respected seafarer.

For that, the town apportioned P1 million.

Another P2 million was also spent in last year’s 20% development fund for a concreting of a Public Market Road.

Two smaller construction projects: a Public Restroom and Shower at Poblacion and a Public Terminal at the Public Market each got P.5 million from 2012 IRA Development funds.

This year too, the town ventured into a street lighting project that put up town’s main streets like any town blessed with the fruits of its economic activities.

Panglao had P7.9 M from its IRA share in 2011, a figure that increased to P8.1 million in 2012, according to Asilo.

Romans 10:9-10
"If you declare with your mouth, Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved."
