City Of San Fer­nando— Third Dis­trict Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Aure­lio “Dong” Gon­za­les, Jr. has moved for a pro­posed bill that aims to re­con­sti­tute Pam­panga’s en­gi­neer­ing dis­tricts into four.

Dong said that pro­posed Bill 2847 aims to equal­ize the work load, clearly de­lin­eate the ar­eas of cov­er­age, pro­mote ef­fi­ciency and closer co­or­di­na­tion, en­hance mon­i­tor­ing and pro­vide a faster re­sponse time for the dist r i ct s.

The bill seeks to re­con­sti­tute the ex­ist­ing dis­trict en­gi­neer­ing of­fices of Pam­panga into four sep­a­rate and reg­u­lar dis­trict en­gi­neer­ing of­fices con­sis­tent and con­form­ing with the cur­rent leg­isla­tive dis­tricts of the prov­ince.

“The pro­posal will en­sure ef­fi­ciency and ef­fec­tiv­ity in the work of the dis­trict en­gi­neer­ing of­fices as their ju­ris­dic­tion and man­date are now more clearly de­fined,” Gon­za­les said.

The Pam­panga en­gi­neer­ing dis­trict of­fices, un­der the su­per­vi­sion of the Depart­ment of Pub­lic Works and High­ways, shall be re­con­sti­tuted into four sep­a­rate reg­u­lar dis­trict en­gi­neer­ing of­fices to con­form and cor­re­spond to the num­ber of leg­isla­tive dis­tricts in the Prov­ince of Pam­panga, and shall be re­spec­tively named as fol­lows: the Pam­panga First Dis­trict En­gi­neer­ing Of­fice; the Pam­panga Sec­ond Dis­trict En­gi­neer­ing Of­fice; the Pam­panga Third Dis­trict En­gi­neer­ing Of­fice; and the Pam­panga Fourth Dis­trict En­gi­neer­ing Of­fice.

The pro­posal said that the four Pam­panga en­gi­neer­ing dis­trict of­fices shall com­prise the cities and towns cor­re­spond­ing to the po­lit­i­cal sub­di­vi­sion of the prov­ince’s four leg­isla­tive dis­tricts.

In which case the Sec­re­tary of the Depart­ment of Pub­lic Works and High­ways shall in­clude in the Depart­ment’s pro­grams, the op­er­a­tions of these four dis­trict en­gi­neer­ing of­fices and the fund­ing shall be in­cluded in the an­nual Gen­eral Ap­pro­pri­a­tions Act un­der the said pro­posal.
