The Bacolod City Council has given Mayor Evelio Leonardia a green light to enter into contracts for the two flagship projects in the city to be implemented this year, Panay News reported.

The three companies are Supreme ABF Construction and Supply Company, Inc., Wilkinson Construction, and ESJ and Sons Construction and Construction Supply, Inc.

Supreme ABF is the chosen contractor for the P45-million Gonzaga Street extension project.

Wilkinson Construction is the contractor for the P61-million road rehabilitation project in Barangays Mansilingan and Felisa.

The two projects are under the P200-million road and bridge rehabilitation program, whose budget was sourced from the city government’s P1.7-billion loan from the Development Bank of the Philippines.

The loan will also fund the development of the Bacolod City College, whose P350-million contract was awarded to ESJ and Sons.
