Mayor Heidee Ganigan- Chua said the anti-rabies vaccination is done annually in this town to protect the townspeople from rabies virus carried by dogs and cats.

VILLASIS- The municipal government headed by Mayor Nonato S. Abrenica launched recently a livelihood assistance program known as ” Angat Pangakabuhayan Project 2017″ for micro and small scale business owners.
Abrenica said the project was aimed to help the business owners expand their economic activities, which will increase their income.
” The economic growth of the town relies more on the presence of micro and small scale businesses. These are the ones that propel economic growth of the town. By inducing additional capital to them, their businesses will expand,” Abrenica said who is a known businessman before he entered politics.
Under the scheme, micro and small scale business owners should first secure business permits issued by the municipal government to show proofs that they own businesses in the town.
According to Lilibeth Abrenica, the town’s Municipal Social Welfare and Development Officer, whose office supervises the said livelihood program, there are 250 beneficiaries of the said project doing business activities at the public market and the wholesale area (bagsakan).
“Each beneficiary will receive P5,000.00 as initial loan with zero interest. The beneficiary will remit P50.00 daily until the P5,000.00 will be fully paid,” she said.
She further said that sufficient cash flow will be provided to the “Angat Pangkabuhayan Project”
