Tabuk City, Kalinga – With the collective efforts of the stakeholders including its barangay officials, Barangay Magsaysay in Tabuk City, Kalinga has seen rapid progress, receiving various awards and recognitions in the locality up to the regional level.

Under the administration of Captain Enrique Sagayo who assumed office in 2018, the barangay which covers an area of around 504 hectares with a population of about 4,921 has been implementing projects, resulting in its notable development.

In his interview with the Blue Board Multimedia, Sagayo conveyed that among the recent infrastructure development in the barangay are the P15 million Ubbog to Chico River Farm-to-Market Road, P10 million road improvement from Baduyen Street to Sitio San Vicente and Sitio San Felipe boundary to Baduyen Street, P4.5 million concreting of Ibañez Street, P2.9 million construction of Senior Citizen Building, and several road openings, fencing, and rip-rapping. Improvements were also done for the Day Care Center, Barangay Hall, and Multipurpose buildings.

“Dakkel met ti nagbaliwan nan gamin kompleto tayo iti gamit iti tanod tayo, adda met vehicle tayo nga usaren tayo nga agronda iti rabii,” added the captain.
