 MANGALDAN – The mayor here graced recently the groundbreaking ceremony on the renovation of the public market she dubbed as the market central of the three towns and a city that surrounded it.

“The objective of this project is to design the market like the modern architectural designs of the world. We should embrace change and we all knew Mangaldan market is the center market catering to the nearby towns which are San Fabian, Manaoag, Mapandan and even Dagupan City,” the mayor said.

 She cited because of this strategic location,  the town has a “market day” every day – a comparative advantage to other local government unit (LGU) that has one market day only in a week.

 “So in order to encourage our customers to come and buy in our market we need to renovate and rehabilate the public market that has not seen any changes for many many years,” Parayno told officials and media men who converged infront of the public market.

Parayno mentioned Councilor Aldrin Soriano as an example who, since 25 years ago was still a kid and is now a member of the Sangguniang Bayan  as having seen no changes on the façade of the market.

Soriano, chairman of the Market Committee at the SB, facilitated the resolution in the legislative body for the funding of its construction.

The other projects Parayno have been implementing are the Tripple A slaughter house which is 99 percent complete, and the Phase II of the 76 stalls market areas that was funded with a loan of P40 million from the Land Bank of the Philippines.

“It has been renovated, rehabilated with a cost of ten million pesos in order to get a triple A rating,” she said of the abattoir which  businessmen in Dagupan City and other towns in Pangasinan patronize.

Parayno wanted the thriving town to be the Meat Processing Capital of Pangasinan.

“Kilala ang Mangaldan at ito ang dinarayo kaya panahon na para ipakita sa ating turista lahat ng turista  na ang ating bayan ay hinde napapagiwanan ng panahon,” she said.

On the Phase -2 Market, according to Fernando Saguisag “Adje” Cabrera, administrative officer of the local government here, this town has already recouped more than one-fourth of the amortization of the P40 million loan from the Land Bank of the Philippines through the goodwill and rentals from stall owners.

He said from 200 applicants for the 76 stalls of the proposed phase II f the public market, the local government has selected 76 leases who each paid P150,000 for goodwill money for each stall.

“The goodwill (money) estimated to be P10 million,” he cited.

Cabrera said with the business savvy of Mayor Parayno, the LGU would not burden the public coffer to pay for the amortization because the project is income generating.
