Tacurong City Mayor Lino O. Montilla has underscored the need to further boost infrastructure projects and investments in order to sustain the local economy, which has been affected by Covid-19 pandemic.

In his 1st State of the City Address during the formal opening of the regular session of the 8th Sangguniang Panlungsod Wednesday, January 19, the mayor said that more jobs could be created and better services could be rendered through infrastructure development and attracting more investors in the city.

He noted that in 2021, Tacurong recorded 2,504 businesses with 426 new registrants.

Montilla said the local government is eyeing the installation of a digital traffic system; formation of a Super Health Center to bolster the existing City Health Office; and creation of an eco-tourism park and construction of a 20-bed Balay Silangan as temporary rehabilitation shelter for drug offenders in Barangay Calean.

The city government also plans to construct a 6-court badminton facility inside Tacurong Pilot Elementary School; and placement of 270 solar panels on the roof of Tacurong City Cultural and Sports Center intended for the whole city hall building power supply, he added.
