Itogon Mayor Victorio Palangdan said the municipality is set to undergo geological assessment.
Itogon was hit by disastrous landslides broughy by Typhoon Ompong last year.
The Mines and Geosciences Bureau (MGB) previously said a large part of Itogon was not safe for habitation.
The Benguet politiko lauded the the Cordillera Regional Development Council (RDC) for giving the go-signal for the geological assessment.
“We are thankful that they acted on it positively. We need the result as soon as possible so that we will be guided with what we need to do to help our constituents,” Palangdan said.
