Governor Bong Lacson and Cadiz City Mayor Salvador Escalante, Jr. signed a Deed of Donation for a unit of dredger owned by the Provincial Government of Negros Occidental to be donated to Cadiz City. The signing was held at the Governor’s Office, today, and witnessed by Provincial Administrator, Atty. Rayfrando Diaz.
As stated in the conditions, the donated dredger will be exclusively used for flood control purposes to mitigate flood occurrences in the city.
The donated property will also perform maintenance dredging operations in the commercial port and in the adjoining Hitalon River, to clear all the silt deposits that have accumulated due to the constant wave action of the Visayan Sea.*
