Irrigation problem in Samal town resolved, says mayor
Samal Mayor Aida Macalinao said on Monday the irrigation problem among farmers in the Bataan town has already been addressed.
According to a Punto Central Luzon report, the mayor said she considers agriculture as her top priority in her desire to place the town as an agro-tourism spot and a food basket in Bataan.
“Para maabot ito, prayoridad kong tulungan at alagaan ang ating mga magsasaka. Maglalaan ang lokal na pamahalaan ng budget upang matugunan ang mga problema ng magsasaka,” Macalinao was quoted as saying.
The mayor added that she has met with SunSmart that will supply the municipality with solar panels as energy source for the irrigation of farms.
“Isa sa mga misyon ng lokal na pamahalaan ay matugunan ang problema sa patubig sa pamamagitan ng solar farming,” Macalinao said.
