E.B. Magalona Gets Lavatory Facility Project

Governor Bong Lacson and E.B. Magalona Mayor Marvin Malacon led the turnover of sanitary toilet facilities in the town on January 30, 2023, which will benefit a total of 310 households.

It is a collaborative project of the Provincial Government of Negros Occidental and the local government of E.B. Magalona.

The activity was held at Hacienda Alicante, Barangay Pasil, attended by Vice Mayor Eric Matulac and Sangguniang Bayan Members, Provincial Administrator Atty. Rayfrando Diaz, who is also the Provincial Integrated Safe Water Council Action Officer, Pasil Punong Barangay Sharen Belen, Provincial Health Officer Dr. Ernell Tumimbang, and Dr. Rowell Gerzon of PHO.

The joint project, under the Provincial Integrated Safe Water Program, is the first in the Third District, which aims to achieve “zero open defecation” as well as prevent water-borne diseases such as cholera, among others.

The beneficiaries are from Brgys. Alicante, Tanza, Alacaygan, Cudangdang, Nanca and Pasil.

Gov. Lacson said that the project is proof of the Provincial Government’s commitment to the global call for a sustainable and water-secured humanity, by providing every Negrense household access to basic facilities.

He thanked Mayor Malacon and municipal officials for their counterpart support of the provincial government project.
