PB approves P47.9M road project  

The Cebu Provincial Board (PB) approved on Monday a resolution for a P47.9 million contract of a road concreting project in northern Cebu.

The beneficiary of the project is a section of the Barangay Dakit, Bogo City to Cayaan Nipa, Tabogon road, stretching to about six kilometers.

A study of the Provincial Planning and Development Office shows that the Bogo-Tabogon beltway serves as link to numerous businesses and tourist spots in the north.

Meanwhile, three resolutions to boost the Capitol’s health and education programs were also passed.

For health, two measures have given authority to Gov. Hilario P. Davide III to sign a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with hospitals in which indigent patients are granted with laboratory and medical care subsidies.

Part of the MOA provides a referral system by which patients can still avail themselves of medical services at private hospitals.

The same arrangement is applied to those who seek medical services at hospitals run by the Department of Health like the Vicente Sotto Memorial Medical Center.

Another MOA for the construction of a Technical Vocational Training Center in Tuburan town northwest of Cebu also got approval. (Kelvin Cañizares)
