Lingayen – Governor Amado T. Espino, Jr. inaugurated on August 7 the Motorpool Repair Bay 1 building of the Provincial Engineering Office (PEO) located at the Motorpool compound within the Capitol Complex, here.
Governor Espino was assisted by Provincial Engineer Antonietta De Los Santos, former PEO Chief Victor Punay and some department heads of the provincial government during the inauguration and blessing of the fully-rehabilitated facility.
De Los Santos said the P9.9M-worth Repair Bay building houses the electrical unit section, battery shop, spare parts issuance and withdrawal section, survey section and the main administrative services office of the motorpool.
A drainage canal surrounding the building -- that was then prone to flooding – was also built, she added.
In related news, the P1.6M-worth building for the Materials Testing and Quality Control Division of PEO, located at the back of the motorpool repair bay 1, is almost complete.
Ground-breaking for the construction of the newly-inaugurated building was held last April 28.
With these two buildings, operations of the PEO are expected to further level up as personnel assigned in the area will have a more orderly, conducive and spacious working environment to execute their tasks, the provincial engineer stressed.
