de Luna, LUPAHO-OIC Jeri­cho Balde­mor, At­tor­ney-in Fact Re­nee Rose Marie N. Ser­rano, Carmelo Vir­gillo N. Lim, and Home­own­ers As­so­ci­a­tion Pres­i­dent Ger­a­lyn Cura.

The ben­e­fi­cia­ries of the MoA from Purok 5B in Barangay Pam­pang are seen to ben­e­fit from the land ac­qui­si­tion pro­gram of the city. The prop­erty is owned by the Lim, San­tos, Ser­rano, and Ne­po­mu­ceno fam­i­lies.

The MoA states the sale of the prop­erty to the amount of P1,000 per square me­ter if paid in cash ba­sis within a pe­riod of one year; or an amount of P1,500 per square me­ter if payable within a pe­riod of three years.

Ac­cord­ing to Rivera, LUPAHO is man­dated to per­pet­u­ally ren­der ef­fi­cient and ef­fec­tive pub­lic ser­vice to in­di­gent An­geleños by pro­vid­ing them de­cent homes which can truly be called their own. The city coun­cilor also urged the ben­e­fi­cia­ries to prac­tice the honor of set­tling obli­ga­tions as stip­u­lated in the MoA.

Also dur­ing the cer­e­mony, a to­tal of 38 in­di­vid­u­als from Purok 2 in the same vil­lage re­ceived their land ti­tles.

Mean­while, Ne­po­mu­ceno ac­knowl­edged and cer­ti­fied the un­selfish gen­eros­ity of the Lim, San­tos, Ser­rano fam­i­lies and their as­cen­dants by col­lab­o­rat­ing with the city of­fi­cials in mak­ing the MOA sign­ing and land ti­tle dis­tri­bu­tion con­ceiv­able.

Ne­po­mu­ceno led the oath tak­ing of the newly elected home­own­ers as­so­ci­a­tion of­fi­cers shortly after the turnover cer­e­mony.

For his part, Pam­intuan ex­pressed his ap­pre­ci­a­tion to the un­par­al­leled gen­eros­ity of the land own­ers for help­ing the city ac­com­plish its Con­tract with the An­ge­lenos (CWA) es­pe­cially on pro­grams con­cern­ing the ur­ban poor sec­tor.

The mayor added that the ac­tive in­volve­ment of the bene­fac­tor fam­i­lies man­i­fest their unity with the ad­min­is­tra­tion’s ef­forts to achieve “zero in­for­mal set­tlers” in the city.

In the same way, Pam­intuan in­spired the ben­e­fi­cia­ries to be re­spon­si­ble in keep­ing what is stip­u­lated in the MoA by re­li­giously pay­ing their dues. He as­sured every­one that the city’s pro­gram on low cost hous­ing will be sus­tained by the lo­cal govern­ment in the com­ing years.

Also present dur­ing the sign­ing of the MoA were Coun­cilor Edgardo Pam­intuan Jr., City Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Of­fi­cer Jay Pe­layo IV, Barangay Cap­tain Chris Cortez of Mining, Barangay Cap­tain Alma Mer­cado of Tabun, Coun­cilor Jeri­cho Aguas and wife JC Parker-Aguas, Coun­cilor Alexan­der In­diongco and wife CLAC Pres­i­dent Thelma In­diongco, and Raco Del Rosario.— AC-CIO
