Mayor Jennie Uy leads Adopt-An-Estero program


Here’s to a cleaner Soligao Creek!

Villanueva, Misamis Oriental Mayor Jennie Rosalie Uy recently led the launch of the environment awareness program, “Adopt-an-Estero”. Representatives from the Local Government of Villanueva together with the FDC Misamis Power Corporation, Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) and the Environmental Management Bureau (EMB) attended the signing of the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) last March 14, 2018 to propagate the sanitation advocacy.

The collaborative “Adopt-an-Estero Program” aims to institutionalize the city’s good sanitation and solid waste management protocols amongst estero communities. It is a group effort among communities, private stakeholders, local government units and the DENR. The program also specifically aims to rehabilitate the ‘Soligao Creek’ traversing five barangays.
