Using his administration’s “Bato Alisto” battlecry as his benchmark, Mayor Eulogio Rodriguez last week outlined the accomplishments of the municipal government for the year 2018 in a well-attended “Ulat” at the multi-purpose center.

In Agri-Fisheries Development, the mayor cited the distribution of hand tractor, water pump and thresher to farmers’ associations in Sta. Isabel, Oguis and Bitaogan, respectively, as well as the availability of two 4-wheeled tractors that can be borrowed by farmers from the local agriculture office.

A season-long Farmers Field School for 110 farmers was also conducted to teach them technology on rice production, swine breeding, goat production and millet (dawa) production, with the beneficiaries receiving 10 bags of certified palay seeds, 52 piglets for fattening and 8 gilts for breeding, feeds, worth P303,030.00 as well as dawa seeds and fertilizers.

“Dapat nating siguraduhing tuloy-tuloy ang dawa production sa Bote,” the mayor said. “Tayo lang ang meron niyan, sayang naman pag nawala ito.”

Among the other agriculture projects are the establishment rice hybrid model farms, distribution of certified palay seeds, rehabilitation of abaca farms, technical assistance, crop protection program, vaccination of 1,369 dogs, and distribution of aquasilvi paraphernalia and tilapia fry.

For Livelihood and Industry, the Rodriguez administration was able to provide employment to 28 students, disadvantaged workers, and interns while 20 trainees were given driving scholarships through Sen. Loren Legarda.

DOLE Pangkabuhayan Starter Kits were also given to former OFWs and 37 students from seven barangays were trained in welding and heavy equipment operation under TESDA. Sixty coconut farmers received assistance for fertilization from the Philippine Coconut Authority, with the mayor’s spouse sponsoring food processing and swine raising training for housewives in five barangays.

In the aspect of Infrastructure Development, the Rodriguez administration allocated almost P15 million for various projects, including barangay roads, tourism roads, water systems, barangay halls, waste disposal facility, drainage systems, Maribina Falls improvement, mangrove ecotourism, solar streetlights, and condominial septic tanks.

For disaster risk reduction, it has programmed projects for the improvement of drainage canals, evacuation center in Batalay and road rehabilitation.

Various road concreting, water system, hospital repair, multipurpose buildings and embankment protection projects have also been solicited by the mayor from the provincial government, the DILG, and the DPWH Catanduanes Engineering District. A fish landing center has been constructed in Pananaogan while a fish port has been funded by the Philippine Ports
