MetadataShow full item record
To protect life, property, and crops of farmers from further damage, officials of La Trinidad in Benguet requested ACT-CIS Partylist and Benguet Caretaker Eric Go Yap to fund the construction and improvement of the flood control of the Balili River from Kilometer 3 to Kilometer 6. During the regular session of Municipal Council on Tuesday, December 1, approved was the proposed resolution of Councilors Arthur Shontogan, John Botiwey, Teddy Walang, and Renato Tereng asking Yap to allocate P100 million for the realization of the project. Officials said that during rainy season, the river becomes flood hazard zone, wherein major water tributary overflows affecting farmers nearby and about 1,000 families evacuate due to the possible occurrence of flash flood and soil erosion.
