Implementation of priority projects in the barangays here will now be stricter after guidelines were set from a series of direct consultation with the people.
According to Loyda Bagayao of the Tabuk Municipal Planning and Development Office, selection of projects was based on the overall economic impact and its pass-on benefits from the specific local government unit to its environment and the sustainability of project in relation to the resources of the beneficiary barangay.
One high impact project from each of the 43 barangays was determined by the people themselves during the consultation for funding assistance under the equal sharing program of Tabuk LGU allotted yearly as municipal counterpart.
"However, projects that need huge funding are endorsed to higher LGUs, agencies, and foreign financial institutions," Bagayao said.
She said most of the identified projects are infrastructure explaining that barangays desire to put in place first physical improvements and establish permanent access like farm to market roads.
