P91 M local calamity fund not enough for Ompong damages
by PIO release

Mayor Mauricio Domogan said the city’s available calamity fund amounting to P91 million this year is not sufficient to restore public infrastructure in the different parts of the city damaged during Typhoon Ompong.

The mayor said as the city suffered more than P404 million worth of damage to public infrastructure, the Local Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (LDRRMC) needed to convene to prioritize the use of the calamity fund while awaiting whatever the national government will apportion for the city from the funds of concerned government agencies and the Office of the President.

"We will have to work on the prioritization of the projects that will be funded from the available calamity funds.

We will not spend the whole amount so that we will have available funds to use for future calamities this year," Domogan said, explaining that 70 percent should be earmarked for prevention and mitigation projects while the remaining 30 percent will be for quick response initiatives.

The city government welcomed Pres. Duterte’s declaration of a state of calamity in four regions, including the Cordillera as the assistance will help in terms of recovery and rehabilitation projects.

LDRRMC members are now assessing the reported damages to private and public properties in the city to come up with a report on actual damages.

Domogan expressed hope that there will be no other similar weather disturbance in the remaining months of the year.
