ROXAS CITY—A city engineer here recently claimed there has been a delay of the rehabilitation of the City Hall, the Teodoro Arcenas Trade Center (TATC), and the Dinggoy Roxas Civic Center (DRCC).

Engr. Ardieli Ambrosio said if it were not for a “clerical error made by the City Treasurer’s Office on the official receipt,” the post-Yolanda rehabilitation projects funded by the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) would have been implemented earlier.

The official said that on April 11, 2014, the City Treasurer’s Office issued the receipt of the DILG Recovery Assistance on Yolanda (RAY) fund. But it was rejected when the total amount of funds were written on the receipts instead of indicating 80 percent of it. This prolonged the project from April 15 to July 21.

The first tranche of the RAY fund for the repair of the town market, civic center, and provincial, city or municipal hall was released in April; while the second tranche will be given if there is a substantial completion of the projects, Ambrosio added.

What follows are the breakdown for the first tranche—Roxas City Hall, P400,000; TATC, P2,660,159.20; and DRCC, P1,444,167.20.

The allotments per second tranche—yet to be released at this writing are, as follows: Roxas City Hall, P100,000; TATC, P665,039.80; and DRCC, P361,041.80.

Schedules of work are as follows: Roxas City Hall, Aug. 23 to Nov. 21; TATC, Oct. 1 to Dec. 30; and DRCC, Aug. 23 to Dec. 5.

As of November 8, the projects all had “positive slippages” which means the projects are ahead of schedule, said Ambrosio.

Damaged facilities in specific areas were as follows: roof, ridge roll, gutter, comfort room fixtures, and PVC pipe downspout for the City Hall; roofing, gutter, trusses, rollup gate and comfort rooms in DRCC; and roof, trusses and flashing in TATC.

On Nov. 11, a day before Interior Sec. Mar Roxas visited the city, Vice-Mayor Ronnie Dadivas visited TATC to check the repair work. Most of the roofing was completed but tarpaulins used to cover stalls when it rains were seen inside the different parts of the public market.

When Dadivas went to DRCC, people were seen cleaning the civic center and landscaping the part facing a local supermarket.

It was learned from one of the workers that they were instructed to do so in preparation for Roxas’ visit. One of the vendors said that they would also be allowed to return on November 14.

Ambrosio denied it saying that it was for the beautification of the area. “We knew there is only one place Mar will go: TATC,” he said in Hiligaynon.

The Roxas City Press Bureau posted on Facebook recently that the sidewalk vendors have an identification card, semi-permanent stalls and stall number with the help of the City License Division.

Ambrosio added that the City Hall’s comfort rooms were damaged because some people do not know how to use the faucets and toilets properly.

The City Hall, he said, was also used as a “charging station” when Roxas City as well as the entire province of Capiz lost power days after Yolanda.
