P90-M DAR funding for Negros farm-to-market roads

manila bulletin blue logoBacolod City, Negros Occ. – Four local government units (LGUs) in the province – Hinobaan, Pontevedra, Valladolid and Candoni – received a total of P90 million from the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) for the construction of farm-to-market roads (FMR). DAR Western Visayas Regional Director Stephen Leonidas said the  FMRs in Hinobaan and Pontevedra are already fully finished while those in Valladolid  and Candoni are about 50 percent complete. Each FMR has a length of two to five kilometers.
Leonidas also said that the identification of  roads that were or are being constructed was based on the Agrarian Reform Community development plan done with thorough consultation with the members of the community.

Sixty percent of the FMR roads project in Western Visayas is shouldered by the DAR while the remaining 40 percent is shouldered as LGUs’ counterpart, according to DAR Undersecretary Herman Ongkiko.

“This is to establish a sense of ownership because every road or every agri-enterprise is based on consultation process,” Ongkiko pointed out.
