La Castellana is securing a loan of P300 million from the Land Bank of the Philippines to fund its various infrastructure projects, including the establishment of a sanitary landfill, as part of its environmental protection program, disclosed Mayor Rhumyla Nicor Mangilimutan on Sunday night.

This amount is on top of P30 million given by Gov. Eugenio Jose Lacson to La Castellana for the implementation for its solid waste management program, Mangilimutan said.

She added that they are just waiting a certification from the Bureau of Local Government Finance to proceed in applying for loans, after being granted an authority by the Sangguniang Bayan.

La Castellana needs P120 million to establish a 11-hectare sanitary landfill project in Brgy. Manghanoy, La Castellana, at a location purchased by the municipal government, with the site and purchase of equipment already approved by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, Mangilimutan disclosed in a press conference Sunday night.

Mangilimutan said she will also seek the support of President elect Ferdinand Marcos Jr. and Vice President elect Sara Duterte Carpio, whom she campaigned for during the May 9 elections.

Serving her last term as mayor of La Castellana, Mangilimutan said she will also expand the delivery of basic health services, including the construction of a hospital, develop further the existing and potential tourism sites in order to boost the local economy, build farm to market roads in the hinterlands, establish a community college and strengthen the water system, among others.

The mayor said she was informed that they can secure a loan as much as P400 million. If they decide to do so, they can use the P15 million for the construction of the hospital, Mangilimutan added.

A former police officer, Mangilimutan is also investing in peace and order to entice more businessmen to invest in La Castellana.

The municipality also entered into public private partnerships with investors who offered their property as sites for tourist promotion and development and for industrial use, she added.

We have also local investment and incentive code to assist investors who may come in, Mangilimutan, whose Team Arangka hosted a thanksgiving party for their supporters in Brgy, Manghanoy, La Castellana, on Sunday night, said.*
