Province gives additional
P7-M for board walk project


Negros Oriental Gov. Roel Degano yesterday said he wants to prove his critics wrong that his assurance to continue the projects of the late governor Emilio Macias II was mere lip service.

The governor announced an additional appropriation of P7 million for the completion of the board walk in Tanjay City.

The governor said he was amazed upon seeing the improvement of the board walk project during an ocular inspection on Sunday, together with Luka barangay captain Denver Bokingkito, who is also the Association of Barangay Captains president in Tanjay City.

Degamo said the boardwalk promises to be the next tourist attraction in Negros Oriental, and for visitors outside and within the province.   It is constructed under the shades of a thickly populated mangroves area, where visitors can hear different tunes of singing birds.

It has two view decks, one each for both the south and north wings, overlooking the Tañon Strait where dolphin watching is famous.

When completed, it will also serve as a jump-off point for dolphin watching enthusiasts, Bokingkito added.

Already, P12 million had been poured in for the project, with the P2 million coming from the city government of Tanjay.*JG
