DILG pours rehab fund to South Cotabato public markets

Four towns in the Province of South Cotabato received funds to rehabilitate their public markets, Department of Interior and Local Government South Cotabato Program Manager Hayd-Ali Suwaib confirmed.

“The fund is from the Local Government Support Fund which finances local development and infrastructure projects,” Suwaib said.

In a turn-over ceremony, Tuesday, in Polomolok, DILG handed over the P5M-worth rehabilitated fruit section of Polomolok Public Market.

At least 50 stall owners benefitted the rehabilitation of the fruit section. These market vendors pay P1200 every month as a rental fee.

Last January, DILG also turned over a P7M-worth public market building in Sto. Nino.

The project was implemented by DILG and the Department of Public Works and Highways.
