October 15, 2019. Government and private stakeholders have convened together for the final preparation of the upcoming “Serbisyong Tinuoray, Serbisyong Walay Pili” – Community Immersion in Peace and Development Zones (PDZ) to be held on the whole day of October 26,2019 at Brgy. Mahaba. Expected participants to the big convergence of locals from barangays identified as PDZ areas like the barangays of Concepcion, Bay-ang, Puting Bato, Antonio Luna and Mahaba can freely avail of all the services¬†being offered by all the departments from the City LGU, Provincial Government, locally-based national line agencies.

Other than the food packs of rice and canned goods; hygeine kits; medicines and many more, there will be extra treats for all locals who will be present on the big event such as free ice cream for everyone, Jollibee Kiddie Party for the kids and free haircut.

This activity aims to promote the trust of locals in the grassroot communities to the government by bringing right into their doorsteps all the services possible that they can avail to make their living condition convenient for them.

With this set-up fully institutionalized and sustained, there is an even greater chances of ending cases of insurgency particularly in the remote barangays because the people will have a direct encounter on how the government is doing all its best so that at least the most basic services can be easily accessed and availed right into the barangays very own doorsteps. It is everybody’s dream that we can all attain a lasting and genuine peace for all our communities.

Mayor Judy Chin Amante expressed this early her undying gratitude for the overwhelming support coming not only from the city government, provincial government, congressional office, national line agencies especially the AFP and most importantly also from the private sector and academe.
