Quezon City gives informal settlers P1.2-million to move to Rizal

The 37-member Quezon City council has given Mayor Herbert Bautista the green light to extend P1.2 million in financial aid to informal settlers affected by road improvement projects.

City Resolution 7386, introduced by District 1 Councilor Alexis Herrera, has authorized the mayor to provide P5,000 in aid to each of 200 informal settler families to be affected by the road development in barangays Sto. Domingo and Manresa.

The aid was given to enable the displaced families to move to a National Housing Authority resettlement site in Morong, Rizal.

The city’s Housing Community Development and Resettlement Department has identified 244 verified informal settler families occupying the rights-of-way.

In another development, City Resolution 7390 has authorized Bautista to purchase 40 computer sets for the use of government and non-government institutions in the city’s District V.

Among the recipients were several homeowners’ associations, police stations, and tricycle operators and drivers’ associations.
