Mankayan Mayor Frenzel Ayong said the municipal government has allotted P5 million for the concreting of the Balili-Sayyapot Road.
The Benguet politiko said the P5 million will be sourced from the proposed 2019 supplemental budget.
Ayong explained that the amount will be used while the municipal government is waiting for more funds from the provincial and national government.
The concreting of the Balili-Sayyapot Road is one of Ayong’s campaign promises.
“We consider barangay Balili one of the strategic barangays in the municipality as it is our food basket, being a major agriculture-producing barangay, thus we decided to work out the funds needed to jumpstart the paving of the major road linking the municipality to other neighboring towns in Mountain Province for us to improve inter-connectivity,” he said.
