Tuba Mayor Ignacio Rivera lauded Baguio City Mayor Mauricio Domogan for endorsing the municipal government’s application for the use of around 5,000 square meters of land at the Baguio Dairy Farm for a water supply system and other government facilities.
The Benguet politiko recently made a request to Agriculture Secretary Emmanuel Piñol on the segregation of the 5,000 square meters of the 92-hectare Baguio Dairy Farm for Tuba’s use.
Rivera said there is a need to expand Tuba’s government facilities to ease transactions.
“We really need to expand our government facilities along Marcos highway to provide our constituents the ease of transacting business with the different offices of the local government that is why we wanted to have portion of the Baguio dairy farm for our public needs,” he explained.
Domogan said he will also endorse the requests of other Benguet local government units if they ever they make similar requests to the Department of Agriculture.
