VILLASIS- In support to the agricultural sector and to enhance productivity of the different barangays of this town, 20 units Kubota mini-tractors (small farm tractors) with trailers were turned over to village heads by Mayor Libradita G. Abrenica last October 17 at the Agricultural Center, Barrca village here.

Abrenica said the small farm tractors are intended for public services only. However, these could be rented out to farmers on a short-term basis provided that all expenses will be shouldered by the private user.

“If used improperly and not in consonance with what we agreed upon, I will pull out the units from you, but of course with proper notice,” Abrenica told the village heads.

She said the units could also be pulled out from the barangays if the municipal government needs them for development operations.

Prior to the turn over, village heads signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) which stipulates the duties of the municipality as well as the barangay councils of the 21 barangays.

Through its designated farm operation manager, the municipal government shall monitor/inspect the units if they are properly used, provide general check up and change oil every three months. Cost of motor oil and filters will be shouldered by the barangays.

The barangays, on the other hand, shall have full responsibility in safekeeping the small farm tractors and shoulder the expenses for drivers, diesoline and their regular maintenance.

“This small farm tractor will be of great help to us in the barangay. We could use it for the hauling of farm products from our barangay to the market center,” said Daniel Ogana, village head of La Paz.

Alex Sison, village head of Zone I (Poblacion) said that the tractor and the trailer would be used in hauling wastes and garbage within his barangay.

“Collection of garbage will now be easier for us,” Sison further said.

The small farm tractors were funded out of the tobacco excise tax share of the town under former 5th District Rep. Mark O. Cojuangco.

Each unit including the trailer costs more or less P300,000.
