“We, your city officials cannot totally work for the progress and development of our city as we need the wholehearted cooperation of the citizenry in all levels of our society, most especially the sector engaged in business ventures in the city,” the mayor said.

“The past administration grossly neglected to install the necessary mechanisms to ensure the payment of the stalls in the markets and at Manokan, so there are no funds available to maintain and to make necessary repairs and improvements,” he also said.

He stressed, “the past administration incurred large debts which we are now servicing to the best of our ability. In order to have funds to improve all the the infrastructure in these areas, we will, instead of borrowing funds, sell some of the city properties in order to finance the needed improvements. In the case of the Manokan Country, SM and other agencies are interested in buying this property and develop into world standards.
