Tubignons remember Aumentado By Reyna Omictin                 Tubignons viewed the remains of the departed Cong. Erico Boyles Aumentado 2 pm of December 30 outside the Municipal Building before it was brought to his residence in Tagbilaran City. A convoy of supporters, family and colleagues of the late Congressman stopped by the Municipality allowing Tubignons to pay respects to the deceased lawmaker. People from all walks of life flocked over to the venue and expressed the grief in the loss of “a good leader”, as some describe. Members of the Local Government Unit, spearheaded by Vice Mayor Virgilio C. Fortich, extended their condolences to the bereaved family of Cong. Aumentado personally, while flags within the municipality were on half-mast. The 72 year-old, died of pneumonia 8:37 pm on Christmas Eve at St. Lukes Medical Center. According to Erico Aristotle Aumentado, son of the late Congressman in a press release, his father’s interment will be on January 5, 2012 at the Victoria Memorial Park preceded by a 1 PM mass at St. Joseph Cathedral, Tagbilaran City. “He was a man of vision,” Mayor William Jao recounts, “a hardworking leader who is focused in his goals, especially for Bohol.” Jao, who was elected subsequent to the end of the solon’s term as Governor, admired Aumentado’s achievements in terms of projects especially the circumferential roads in the island of Bohol. The strong political will of Aumentado, Jao says, is one of the good things about him that will “leave a mark” in the hearts of many. On the other hand, Councilor Rene Villaber, who was the former BEMO Office, speaks about the solon... read more

NGCP seals deal with Tubigon LGU

NGCP seals deal with Tubigon LGU By Reyna Omictin The National Grip Corporation (NGCP) heads visited Tubigon town last November 28 for the Joint MOA signing for the construction of potable water supply between the LGU.  Spearheaded by Mr. Nelson F. Cabangon, NGP Corporate Affairs Department Head, the team of 6 members arrived to the municipality to seal the deal with Tubigon’s Chief Executive Engr. William R. Jao and Vice Mayor Engr. Virgilio C. Fortich. After the successful turn-over of the 10M-worth waterworks project in the municipality, the construction of another Potable Water Supply Level II System is being implemented to improve the access to potable water in the upland barangays of Bunacan, Cawayanan, Buenos Aires and Libertad. Targeted beneficiaries of the project are estimated to reach 114 households with about 570 population. The estimated cost of the project is roughly P500, 000.00 where both parties agreed to 50% counterpart, P250, 000.00 from the LGU and the same amount from NGP. The P250, 000.00 grant from the NGCP, is “in consideration of the [LGU’s] valuable support…and willingness to help protect [NGP’s] transmission facilities from any unlawful prepetrators,” as stated in the MOA. This grant, according to Fortich, will be used to fund additional waterworks project in the municipality, especially in the beneficiary barangays. In the SB Resolution No. 184 of 2012, the LGU requested the NGP for the said amount as counterpart funds for the construction of waterworks project covering the four hinterland barangays. Vice Mayor Fortich and Mayor Jao earnestly welcomed the guests and signed the MOA with “utmost gratitude” for NGP. “NGP is very generous, and I... read more
