Isabela City Mayor Sitti Djalia Turabin-Hataman together with Basilan Lone District Representative Mujiv Hataman led the turnover of the newly constructed multipurpose hall to LGU-Isabela City, February 14 at Strong Boulevard, Barangay Port Area.
In her message, Mayor Turabin-Hataman asked for everyone’s cooperation, and she also stated that one of the spaces will be converted into an office for the Local Economic Development Investment and Promotions Office, as well as the Public Employment Service Office, which promotes the HAPIsabida program, where Isabeleños can seek assistance not only with budget matters, but also with technical business knowledge.
“Unti-unti pagagandahin natin, ng hindi nawawalan ng hanapbuhay ang mga tao, kung meron mang naunang maka-witness ng potential ng tourism at economic development ng Isabela City, ay itong Boulevard. Ito ang una nating inilawan, nakita natin ang response ng mga tao.”
The project is part of Isabela City’s development program, initiated by the Office of the Deputy Minority Floor Leader and Basilan Lone District Representative Mujiv Hataman and implemented by DPWH-Basilan at a cost of P14,840,000. (Words by S.J. Asakil/Photos by M. Santos, CIO)
