LAPU-LAPU CITY, Cebu – Solving the city’s flooding problem is one of the priorities of Lapu-Lapu City Mayor Junard “Ahong” Chan after he announced a fresh term.

Chan said flooding is one of the immediate concerns of the Oponganons in some areas, especially during the rainy season and typhoons.

He said he will coordinate closely with his wife, Cindi, who was also proclaimed the winner of the congressional race in the lonely district of Lapu-Lapu City.

“Sugdan dayon ang maong problema, especially kadtong mga drainage nga walay outflow. Mao gyud na atong gikoan nga the importante man gud sa outfall nga duna siyay STP, sewage treatment plant,” Chan said.

A drain prevents overflow of water from the drainage.

Chan added that he will also look into the various drainage projects being implemented by outgoing Representative Paz Radaza to ensure they also have a drain.

In addition to the drainage project, Chan will also push ahead with the implementation of the Skyway project, which has been postponed by the current City Council members.

Currently, most councilors are allies of Radaza, Chan’s opponent in the recently concluded election.

However, with all of his candidates for councilor and vice mayor victorious, Chan said he expected smooth implementation of his projects that would improve the lives of the Oponganons.

Chan will also focus on developing the city’s tourism industry and implementing the public housing project, among other things.
