Tagum City — Local government employees here will have a chance to finally have their own homes as the local government of Tagum has initiated the resettlement project Tagumpay Balai Residences which now extends to government employees here.
In a statement, Tagum City Mayor Allan L. Rellon said that at least 312 employees of the local government unit (LGU) already had their first general assembly earlier this month where they also formed the Tagumpay Balai Residences Homeowners Association.
The Tagumpay Balai Residences will be situated in the LGU-owned 5.2 hectare lot in Purok Abaca, Barangay Mankilam and the socialized
low-cost housing project will be financed by the National Housing Authority (NHA) which will also fund its land development.
The NHA and the Tagum City Housing and Land Management Office presented the blueprint of the modern duplex-style housing design to the beneficiaries who would each receive 100 sq.m. total land area of house and lot.
Rellon said that the project is expected to be completed two years from now and is seen to provide affordable and livable homes to city employees.
Under a similar program, Rellon also signed the Complex Subdivision Plans of the two LGU-owned and initiated resettlement sites last May 6 which is a vital requirement in processing the notice of award to deserving homeowners of Apokon Grand Subdivision that has 628 settlers and Manuel Suaybaguio Sr. Phase III or Sto. Rosario Apokon Village that has 101 settlers.
