NAGTIPUNAN, QUIRINO – the Local Government Unit of Nagtipunan under the leadership of Hon. Nieverose C. Meneses inaugurated its completed Locally-Funded Projects (LFPs) under FYs 2018 and 2019 Assistance to Municipalities (AM) Program on June 22, 2021.

During the turn-over program, RD Leusen commended the LGU particularly the Municipal Engineering Office including other key local officials and functionaries for their tireless efforts that paved way for the smooth and timely implementation of the projects despite the pandemic. He added that the investments poured by the National Government in their infrastructure projects were definitely worth it and that he looks forward to the allocation of sufficient funds to ensure their maintenance.
Mayor Meneses, on the other hand, said that COVID-19 has truly made the implementation of projects challenging. He also acknowledged that these infrastructure projects will improve accessibility which will ultimately hasten economic and social development in Nagtipunan, which is why the LGU made sure that they are completed the soonest possible time without compromising quality.
Meanwhile, the officials of the recipient barangays expressed their gratitude for the built projects in their areas. Recalling how difficult their situations were, they are now excited for their constituents who will be benefiting from the said projects.
LGU Nagtipunan has been a recipient of numerous programs of the Department and this year, it has already submitted its request for funding under the Financial Assistance to Local Government Units (FALGU) Program.
