Officials ink housing project pact for city hall employees

CITY hall employees who still do not have houses would soon have homes that they could call their own.

On Friday, city hall, the Housing and Land-Use Regulatory Board (HULRB), Pagibig Home Development Mutual Fund (Pagibig) and various developers signed a memorandum of agreement for the development of a 106,020- square meter property in Barangay Lumbia.

Engr. Ermin Pimentel, head of the City Housing and Urban Development Department (Chudd), said regular city hall employees who still do not own houses would be prioritized in the housing project. They are to pay of the houses and lots to Pagibig.

Pimentel said several city hall employees have already received an orientation on the processes, policies and requirements.

He said city hall’s “casuals” and “job order” workers would not be left out because there is another housing scheme for them.

Mayor Oscar Moreno, who signed the agreement on behalf od city hall, said the program is “not just a milestone but history [in the making].”

Moreno lauded the HLURB, Pagibig and the private sector partners like Sibulan Masters and Shang properties, and Mega World.

“This is a very difficult thing to do but we need to really respond to it. Anugon ang mga kahigayonan nga atong ipalabay. From nothing, we have created the City Housing and Urban Development Department which will take care the program,” he said.

Moreno said the project is aimed at enabling city hall to addressing the housing problems of its own employees.
