VMC powers up Manapla distillery community

BY GILBERT P. BAYORAN

The maintenance of peace order in Brgy. Purisima, Manapla, Negros Occidental, got a boost after a kilometer of road in some of its areas are now lighted up courtesy of the Victorias Milling Company.

VMC president Minnie Chua, assisted by Manapla Vice Mayor Edgar Pagayonan, led on Wednesday night the switching-on ceremony in Hacienda Candelaria of the barangay, which was witnessed by residents led by their barangay chairman, Boy Sombero, among other VMC and security officials.

Chua said that they established 40 street lights covering a kilometer stretch of road, which will benefit residents of the hacienda Zones 4, 5, and 6 of the barangay.

The project is expected to ensure peace and security in the area and the safety of residents as they can now extend their daytime activities because of the street-lighting project, she added.

Chua also said that phase 2 of the project will power up additional stretches of the highway going to the interior sitios, aside from beautification and other community programs.

She also revealed the plans of VMC to construct two bridges in the barangay to replace the dilapidated bridges which will connect those areas to the barangay proper.

VMC operates its distillery plant in Brgy. Purisima, Manapla.

Chua thanked barangay officials, residents, and stakeholders for their collaborative effort in ensuring the completion of the project, adding that the VMC will shoulder the cost of electricity usage.

Residents, who attended the switch-on ceremony at the Candelaria Baptist Church, thanked VMC for the many projects and programs the firm gave to the community and surrounding areas.*
