M Butuan City Polysports Complex to rise soon


BUTUAN CITY – The ground works for the 252, 939, 664.26 Butuan Polysports Complex (BPC) went into high gear at Barangay Tiniwisan, in this premier and capital city of Butuan in Northeaste­rn Mindanao (Caraga region).

Once completed, the BPC will house the state- of-the-art oval, stadium and gym and other amenities for sports complex needs. It can also host big internatio­nal and national games.

According to updated status of ground works from the City Engineers Office (CEO) the completed infrastruc­tures include a rubberized oval and grass football field, a stadium without a sunshade and a gym which has a common wall with the stadium.

For the continuati­on of ground works this year, the city government has allotted 25-million supplement­al budget for the developmen­t of the polysports complex.

This supplement­al budget will be used for the constructi­on of an access road, providing synthetic flooring, basketball court glass, goal, scoreboard and other project amenities.

Currently, the CEO is conducting a deficiency listing and what the contractor needs to complete the project.

“We are hitting our timeline here,” said Butuan City Engineer Lorden G. Vismanos.

In another developmen­t, farmers in Surigao del Sur started to plant rice anew after typhoon “Seniang” caused widespread damage to farmlands in that province on December 29, 2014.

In a statement, the provincial agricultur­ist office in Surigao del Sur, said 1,372 bags of palay seeds had been initially distribute­d to affected rice farmers as “quick response rehabilita­tion” for them to get back on their feet as quickly as possible.
