LAPU-LAPU CITY, Cebu — With the landslide win of his entire Team Deretso slate, Mayor Junard “Ahong” Chan on Thursday expressed determination to address the city’s problems in his first 100 days in office.

Chan said this means the completion of the city’s drainage system, solving the traffic, the completion of the city hospital, repair of typhoon damaged facilities, socialized housing for the urban poor, and revitalization of the tourism industry.

“Dili diha-diha dayon atong masulbad pero atong sugdan dayon ang maong problema (We cannot solve the drainage problem overnight but we have to start immediately in addressing the problem), especially drainage without outfall,” the re-elected mayor said.

He noted that sewage outfalls should have a sewage treatment plant (STP), and he expressed optimism that it will be possible with the help of his wife, Congresswoman-elect Cindi Chan.

Next on the mayor’s to-do list is solving traffic by installing a skyway or flyover.

Chan also promised that he will continue upgrading the new Lapu-Lapu City Hospital in Sitio Carajay in Barangay Gun-ob.

The mayor is also eyeing the repair of typhoon-damaged government facilities, schools, and gymnasium.

Fifth on Chan’s to-do list is to speed up the completion of the socialized housing in barangay Canjulao.

The socialized housing is a public-private partnership of the City and Premium Mega-structure Incorporated (PMI) located on the 25-hectare reclaimed area. (ai/mtvn)
