Capiz town to build new LGU hall

0 487

Demolition work has started on the old two-story town hall of Tapaz in Capiz province, so a new building may be erected in its place.

Mayor Roberto Palomar said the new town hall will be a four-story building costing some P103 million, to be built by a Manila-based contractor.

He said the new building is due for completion by mid-2019.

The demolition stemmed from the recommendation of the Commission on Audit after its engineers inspected the 50-year-old building.

Tapaz, a first-class town, has a population of 51,313 in 58 barangays.

In the meantime, local government offices were transferred to other buildings to ensure that daily transactions of the public will continue.
