LINGAYEN, Pangasinan – Two more structures specifically the Motorpool Repair Bay 2 and Materials Testing and Quality Control Building, with a combined amount of over P7.7M, were inaugurated recently by outgoing Gov. Amado T. Espino, Jr.
The inauguration was highlighted with the blessing of structures by Rev. Fr. Hernan Caronongan from the Epiphany of Our Lord Parish.
Provincial Engineer Antonietta Delos Santos said that the Repair Bay 2 project, which has a length of 948.13 square meters and project cost of P6.148M, had started last September 2015 and was completed in April this year. The Quality Control building, on the other hand, has a length of 91 square meters and cost P1.6M.
Delos Santos stressed the transformation of motorpool was given priority of the present administration. “Hindi napabayaan ang equipment including the structures of engineering office under Governor Espino’s term,” she said as she added that she feels optimistic that the same concern will be carried out by the incoming administration of the provincial chief executive’s son and Governor-elect Amado “Pogi” I.
