CEBU, Philippines — The officials of Barangay Inayawan is requesting the Cebu City Government for the rehabilitation and maintenance of F. Jaca Street and White Road that are mostly utilized by the trucks owned by the City of Cebu.

The transfer station for the collected garbage is located in Barangay Inayawan where garbage trucks from the Cebu City Government and the different barangays of the city are using the roads.

Lawyer Kirk Bryan Repollo, punong barangay of Inayawan, in a letter dated November 28 to Cebu City Mayor Edgardo Labella, has requested the rehabilitation and asphalting of the roads.

Repollo said that because of the different kinds of vehicles using F. Jaca Street and White Road, the deterioration of the road has been faster than normal.

He also said that it is only appropriate that the city should help in the expenses of maintaining the roads, sine its usage does not only limit to their barangay.

“Since the transfer station is catering not just Barangay Inayawan but (all barangays in) Cebu City in general, it is incumbent that the roads leading to and from the transfer station should be maintained by the Cebu City Government,” said Repollo.

Repollo said that their barangay funds are insufficient to shoulder the road rehabilitation.

“Therefore, I hereby request your good office for the road rehabilitation and asphalting of F. Jaca Street and White Road both from Inayawan, Cebu City the soonest possible time as to give convenience to the people passing in the area and also to the vehicles leading to the transfer station,” read the letter.

Barangay Inayawan has implemented a temporary solution to the destroyed roads by manually placing big rocks to somehow make it passable to the vehicles using the road.

During the City Council session last December 11, the council has referred the letter to the Cebu City’s Department of Engineering and Public Works (DEPW). (FREEMAN)
