NEW MAIN PUBLIC MARKET IMAGE BY 2018

ACTING City Engineer Chris Navarro over the weekend, revealed that upon the release of the P40.2 million budgeted amount for the major rehabilitation of our main public market near the PPA wharf, probably, by the end of Sept, it’ll be bidded out right away, and by October, the market rehab project will commence.

“IF everything goes well nay any hitches, we can have its full completion by early next year,” Engr. Navarro hinted when interviewed by this corner last Thursday.

He said the plans to include their estimates have already been prepared, and what’s just needed is its budget release approval by the City Budget Office, and then to be submitted to our BAC (Bids and Awards Committee) for bidding process where it’ll be bidded out to the qualified bidders, which means those not in the list of the blacklisted ones.

He said its construction will take about 45 days—meaning more than a month-long, if all contractors (in their clusters) will come up with their completion works in their synchronized pattern.

Foremost in their plans are as follows: major repairs of the dilapidated portions of both its fish and vegetable sections; the installation of a better drainage system; the construction of additional comfort rooms (at-least two huge CRs); the construction of a better-looking market superintendent office; a decent-looking security outpost, and many other modern-style market amenities at par with what those well-lauded public markets owned by the other highly-urbanized local gov’t units, like the cities of Davao and even that of Dumaguete City that have supposedly impressed our traveling city councilors when they visited the place recently.

ENGR. NAVARRO RESHUFFLES CEO

ALSO, the new City Engineer’s Office (CEO) head announced a major revamp in his setup shortly after he took over effective June 1 following the retirement of his predecessor, the former City Engr. Luis Despalo who bowed from public service upon reaching his mandatory retirement age of 65 last May.

ENGR. Navarro disclosed that he had to overhaul some major changes among a number of his key personnel in the CEO to principally improve its essential services to its whole clientele.

“We can now facilitate and hasten the procurement of the clients’ building permits and their electrical permits, as well. In the past, there were complaints that their papers referred to our office, took them up to 3 days to follow up. But, now, I advise my personnel not to keepthem (clients) waiting. Upon the submission of their papers to their respective desks, they (personnel)can already act on them without any delay, at all. Then, on same day (of submission), all submitted papers when found all in order, are duly completed and signed,” Engr. Navarro vouched.

He said he assigned two new heads to attend individually to their building permit section and to their electrical permit section, respectively. He named them as Engr. Monette Luna now taking charge of its building permit section, and Engr. Maribeth Alvarez now posted as In-Charge of its electrical permit desk. Both can be spotted right away near its entrance door to its right when coming inside their CEO at City Hall.

TO help facilitate faster works in their two separate divisions(Construction and Material), Engr. Navarro assigned their two heads in one common place, and that’s its motor-pool area in Brgy. Pasonanca. He said in the past, contractors (or through their representatives) had to travel a pretty tough distance and went through its rigors, and even bore the agony of going through our city’s too congested traffic flow that took them longer period of time in reaching City Hall just to have all their papers signed by the chief engineer assigned in its construction division. “Now, both divisions are located in one common place and that’s in motor-pool, to do away all these unnecessary delays,” Engr. Navarro bared.He said Engr. Romeo Hiso remains the head of the construction division while Engr. Sherwin Rabago stays put in his material division post in the motor-pool site.

NO MORE FIXERS IN CITY ENGR’S OFFICE

ENGR. Navarro heaved a sigh of relief when he said “fixers” have been weeded out, and have been disallowed to hang around in its office to discourage them from their supposed nefarious “fixing” activities.

“I told them about our strict policy (now), as the sanctions (against fixing) are serious,” Engr. Navarro said.

ITs Monitoring and Inspection section, according to Engr. Navarro, is augmented by the new assignment of Ms. Harisa Hassan who used to man the building permit section.

THE architect section has been improved with the new assignment of Architect Ramil Rodriguez to take charge of its architectural works at its front desk separate from its architect section found at its inner portion. ENGR. Rodrigo Rebollos remains as its abled Asst. City Engineer.

NEW PARKING SITE FULLY OPERATIONAL

ITS new parking site beside the main City Hall building, is now in full-blast operation, according to Engr. Navarro as he credited its fine accomplishment to the office of the City Administrator headed by Ms. Apple Go.

“We decided not to cut down anymore the balete tree. Ta dale pa se sombriolli,” Engr. Navarro expressed his delight.

SO, there you are, the CEO whose head, in the person of 40-year old Engr. Christopher Quijano Navarro from Brgy. Tetuan, appears to have a big plan that’s ideally meant to suit up elegantly well for what’s aptly envisioned by our lady City Mayor Beng Climaco-Salazar, and that’s “Build Back a Better Zamboanga,”—her huge punch-line to make ZC arise from the ashes of the three(3)-weeklong Sept. 9,2013 “ZamboangaSiege” infamy.

LET’s support the ideals and aspirations of our young great leaders under the tutelage of our lady Mayor Beng—indeed, proving her mettle as an iron ladychief executive of our la bella Zamboanga.

BENG’S ANOTHER ENVISAGED PROJECT

MAYOR Beng’s another envisaged project in the offing, is our city’s massive beautification drive in close coordination with our top tourism officials. A top Zamboanga folk’s group told me the other day that they’re helping our local city officials to bring back its lost glory in being the country’s premiere “City of Flowers.”

“The flowers that we’ve been missing for so long, and by which our city had been in the past so well known in the entire world, and even became its signature photo in all its past postcards, is the flores de bogambilla. We plan to plant bougambillas around our city, to make our city bloom with flowers once again,” the group composed of the blue-blooded old Zamboangueños and Zamboangueñas, revealed.

Wow! That amazing! So, let’s support this group then, claiming they’re helping out (as NGO), in the beautification program of the city government under our gorgeous lady Mayor Beng. (30)
