Valencia City Kicks Off Construction of New Fish Landing

The City Government of Valencia kicked off the construction of its new Fish landing on February 19, 2018 at Purok 2, Patag, Bagontaas, Valencia City.

Hon. Rodrigo A. Rosal, Chairperson of the Committee on Infrastructure, said that the 1.3-hectare fish landing is the 3rd major project of the city government which can serve not only the people of Valencia but also the neighbouring city and municipalities in the province.

Rosal also stated that the project is complete with facilities and will replace the old fish landing at Farmers Market in Poblacion, Valencia City.

Engr. Noel L. Barabar of Lions Convergence and Development joint ventured with Edison Development Construction, said that the project will realize the dream of the fish traders to have their own business trading center in the city.

Baraba committed to provide their highest quality service and pledged to finish the project on time with a projected completion of 240 days.

City Mayor Azucena P. Huervas was confident for the success of the project which was yearned for more than 3 years. She even said that through the project, decent and clean facilities will be provided to the fish brokers which will also promote a clean source of food for the public.

Huervas extended her gratitude to all who lend their support to make the project possible especially the Sangguniang Panglungsod headed by Vice Mayor Glenn G. Galario who aided the legislation of the project.

The 75 million pesos government loan project is among the flagship projects of Valencia City under the administration of Mayor Huervas.
