In observance of the weeklong celebration dedicated to Farmers and Fisherfolks Week, the Office of the Municipal Agriculturist orchestrated Livestock Day as a core component of the event series.
Taking place on May 23, 2024, this occasion centered on various aspects related to livestock. Key activities included the vaccination of dogs and cats, a seminar on the Control and Prevention of African Swine Fever, and a seminar focused on ruminants.
These activities were complemented by the daily agro and trade fair, which proudly showcased the locally produced goods of the town’s farmers and fisherfolks.

Under the chairmanship of SB Mazert Torrecampo, the Committee on Public Works, Land Use, and Zoning successfully conducted the third round of public hearing on the proposed Right of Way Ordinance at the JRBB Hall on May 22, 2024.
During the hearing, attendees were apprised of the context, objectives, and anticipated outcomes should the ordinance be approved and implemented.
According to SB Secretary Engr. Antonio Quilantang, all the suggestions and comments were meticulously documented and will be considered in the final draft of the aforesaid ordinance.
For the part of Mayor Richard Garin, he remarked that the ordinance “aims to protect properties of both the government and individuals.”
“May mga government projects nga napatindug sa lote nga indi ana ka gobyerno just as we do not want to build projects on land that doesn’t belong to the government kag tuyo naton nga macompensate ti eksakto ang mga landowners whose properties ang possible ma utilize for government projects,” he emphasized.
The proposed Right of Way Ordinance serves as the local counterpart to Republic Act No. 10752, or the Right of Way Act of the Philippines.
