CEBU City Hall said only P100 million of projects under its Local Development Fund have yet to be implemented, contrary to state auditors’ findings of P468 million in pending projects.
This was stressed by Acting City Mayor Edgardo Labella and City Administrator Jose Marie Poblete. Their statement was confirmed by Department of Engineering and Public Works (DEPW) Chief Kenneth Enriquez.
Enriquez said the program of works and estimates (Powe) for P71 million worth of projects is being prepared by the DEPW.
Other departments at City Hall are also preparing the Powe for P33 million worth of projects.
Enriquez said projects worth P185 million are in the bidding stage, P57 million are in the implementation stage and P28 million worth of drainage projects are under negotiation with owners of affected lots.
