CITY OF SAN FERNANDO — Fourth District Board Member and Committee on Public Works chairman Ricardo Yabut on Tuesday filed a resolution before the Provincial Board requesting the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) to immediately allot funds for the repair of damaged dikes and flood-prevention infrastructure in Pampanga.
Yabut’s resolution stemmed from a similar request made by Governor Lilia Pineda when she, Yabut, 4th District Board Member Nestor Tolentino and 3rd District Board Member Monina Laus met DPWH regional director Antonio Molano Jr. and assistant regional director Ador Canlas at Red Rickshaw Restaurant in Barangay Sindalan on Monday afternoon.
The governor asked the DPWH to allot funds for the maintenance and repair of anti-flood systems in the province as three “confining dikes” breached during the onslaught of Tropical Depression Falcon last week. The breaching flooded some 283 barangays in Pampanga.
The breached dikes that need immediate repair are at the Kaulaman River in Floridablanca and two other dikes in Sta. Ana.
Tolentino corroborated the Capitol’s appeal and stressed the urgency of the repair of the breached dikes, as roads, bridges and private properties will be affected.
No budget
But Governor Pineda was shocked to learn that the DPWH regional office had no funds for repair and rehabilitation of damaged dikes, which contributed to massive flooding and affected 17 towns and an estimated 88,185 families.
Molano and Canlas said their office could only provide equipment like backhoes and loaders for de-silting and cleaning up rivers and creeks as well as repair of the breached dikes. They added that the regional public works department “does not even have gasoline allowances” to run the equipment asking the governor in return for mobilization.
The officials revealed that the DPWH regional office has funds only for the repair and maintenance of national roads and bridges.
For Singson to see
Pineda disclosed she and the Pampanga Mayors League will present to DPWH Secretary Rogelio Singson a video of damages incurred by the province which resulted from the breaching of dikes.
Pineda said, “We are hoping that the good and reliable DPWH secretary will assist us for sake of the people,” citing the need to put the province under a state of calamity and gain access to the P77 million calamity fund. (Jovi T. De Leon)
