SAN FERNANDO– The new director of the Department of Public Works and Highway in Region 1 said the national government has appropriated P593,974,000 for Pangasinan, for construction and repair of highways, bridges, school houses, dikes, and others.

Director Mariano Alquiza said the said amount can be sourced from his department itself, Department of Agriculture, and the Department of Education.

The DPWH funds have been divided into the following districts of Pangasinan: 1 — P51 million; 2 — P177 million; 3 — P143 million; and Pangasinan Sub-District Engineering II, P99 million.

The funds of Department of Agriculture have been appropriated into the following Pangasinan districts: 1 — P20 million; 2 — P25 million; 3 — P45 million; and Pangasinan Sub-District Engineering II, P20 million.

The funds of Department of Education have been divided as follows: District 1-, P254,000; District 2- P6,983,000; and Pangasinan Sub-District Engineering II, P6,737,000.

Alquiza said that his department was still waiting for the funds from DepEd intended for Pangasinan third district.

He added that the overall budget for this year in his jurisdiction is P 1.7 billion.

He said however that if he includes the appropriation last year for some projects that have been finished only this year he dubbed “carry-over,” his office banners a P 2.8 billion budget for 2009.

He explained that significant part of the funds have been programmed for the pump-priming of the regional economy through additional school buildings, bridges, and roads.
