Batac City —Mayor Albert D. Chua said the equal sharing for all the barangays here will continue. However, it would not be the P1 million share for each barangay. He explained that the equal sharing in his administration would depend on each of the barangay’s respective projects. He stressed that barangays have different priority projects, hence the decision to change the scheme. With an initial ₱ 38 million budget for next year, Mr. Chua said he will address all priority projects to be presented by the barangays. He added that he will also give other city government services for free. ( Dominic Dela Cruz )
