Itogon Mayor Victorio Palangdan said the municipal government is set to begin the operation of the Itogon Water District that aims to provide potable water supply in the town.
The Benguet politiko said the municipal government has alloted P5 million for the operation of the water district.
The water district is one of the major projects he inherited from the administration of former mayor Mario Godio.
Palangdan has appointed Godio to be the interim general manager of the water district.
He said the water district will initially serve Barangays Tuding and Ucab and will gradually expand to other barangays.
