The rehabilitation of the Sangguniang Panlungsod (SP) or City Council building is now around 45% completed, according to City Engineer Luis Despalo.
In an interview, Despalo said the rehabilitation and repair of the SP building which started January are hopefully finished by next year.
“The rehabilitation will take one year and it might be finished more or less by January next year,” Despalo added.
The city engineer had earlier disclosed the contractor was instructed to double time the rehabilitation of the building.
The city will spend more or less P22 Million for the rehabilitation project which is being handled by Genesian Construction.
The walls of the building will be fixed and solid sheer walls will be placed to strengthen the structure and the roofing’s will also be fixed together with the post.
The changes on the new building according to Despalo will be the positioning of the rooms of the councilors.
However, the session hall will remain on its original place and the building will have three floors.
Currently, the City Library is temporarliy housing the Vice Mayors Office, City Secretary, and the staff of the Sangguniang Panlungsod Records, Administrative and Steno.
Councilors conduct their regular session at library building’s 2nd floor. Some of them are also housed at the City’s Training Center for the meantime.
