Dong wantsengineering districts reconstituted
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.
