Tanjay City at 17


TANJAY CITY – Tanjay city could yet be the province’s up and coming progressive city, next only to Bayawan and Dumaguete.

For this, the Tanjay Local Government Unit and its leaders headed by Mayor Rey Concepcion deserves recognition for the giant strides Tanjay City has taken during the incumbency of this administration.

There has been a big difference when one notices the new trends and initiatives taken by the local government in instituting progress in their community. For instance, one can readily notice the long stretch of white fence along the Tanjay highway to Bais.

This is the future site of the multi-million government center of Tanjay city.

The first to be undertaken is the Tanjay City general hospital which is the the step in the right direction. We caution that once done, this general hospital in Tanjay City should not only be well-equipped, but fully staffed with enough doctors and nurses so as to cater to the health needs of the people there in their neighbouring areas. In short there is no place for white elephants.

Secondly , Tanjay City has earmarked P106-Million in capital investments for this year 2018. That’s a whopping P106,904,886 to be exact. These are broken down into P31.4Million in environmental management projects; P66.9 in economic development projects; and p8.6Million in repairs and renovations.

There is that boulevard seawall costing P17M; a sanitary landfill lot purchased for P6M; the new waste water treatment facility at P3M which will start construction; and P2M each for flood control, flood protection dikes in barangays 1 and 4.

These and many more are keeping the Tanjay LGU’s hands full this year. Mayor Rey Concepcion deserves to be recognized for his visionary adventure in giving his growing city the biggest economic boost ever.
