CEBU, Philippines — Mandaue City Lone District Representative Emmarie “Lolypop” Ouano-Dizon has turned over an estimated P166 million worth of infrastructure projects to the town of Consolacion.

Ouano-Dizon led the turnover ceremony of the multi-purpose covered courts in the barangays of Tilhaong and Panoypoy.

She also turned over the Polog-Panoypoy concreted road project to the officials of the said barangay.

Polog-Panoypoy road has drainage facilities of 465 meters in length and 403 meters in diameter and slope protection at Panoypoy side which cost a total amount of P75 million.

Another infrastructure project entrusted to the said barangays is the Polog-Panoypoy road concreting 1.287 kilometers in length with drainage facilities and slope protection having a total cost of also P75 million. The drainage therein has 1,287 canal stretches on both sides with a retainer wall of 500 meters.

The multi-purpose covered courts in Tilhaong and Panoypoy that have a contract price at P8 million each feature a wide floor area, screen fences on all sides, and gates on the façade.

It will serve as an area for physical and other recreational activities which will be managed by the barangay concerned.

Ouano-Dizon, in a message, said the projects and programs started in her first term covering her previous areas of jurisdiction had to be finished as her legacy that the people would be enjoying in the field of sports where the said structures are covering them.

Road concreting projects, she said, will assure safe travel, quick transport of their agricultural produce and other commodities in barangays Polog, Panoypoy and other villages in Consolacion.

Ouano-Dizon added that she dedicates the project to all the people of the said barangays and the Municipality of Consolacion.

Aside from doing her legislative works on important matters in the House of Representatives, Ouano-Dizon who is known for her no nonsense service to the people, has also been devoting much of her time in rolling out projects, mostly in infrastructure to all barangays in Consolacion and Cordova which remain in the sixth legislative district which Ouano-Dizon represented before Mandaue City became a separate lone district.

After her re-election in May 9, 2022, Ouano-Dizon is now serving as a legislator representing the lone district of Mandaue City.

The lady solon took the opportunity to thank the barangay officials for their concern of the needs of their constituents which prompted them to send requests to her congressional office.

Joining Ouano-Dizon in the said activities were officials of the Department of Public Works and Highways and the barangay officials concerned.

Also present were Provincial Board Members Thadeo Jovito “Jonkie” Ouano and Glenn Anthony Soco, and former town councilor Julius Alegado representing Consolacion Mayor Teresa “Nene” Alegado. —GMR (FREEMAN)
