MACABEBE — Municipal officials here said last Friday that they are planning to improve their fish products.
“We want to add value on the fish products that we sell. Instead of selling fresh tilapia alone, we want to improve it by making it fish fillet and converting its skin to chicharon,” Municipal Administrator Jomel Cruz said.
He added that they proposed this short-term project to Department of Agriculture Secretary Proceso Alcala during his recent visit to the town.
Cruz said that they plan to build a P13-million farm to market road from Barangay San Jose to Barangay Castuli.
“We want did the final pipeline last 2014, so that we can now implement it this year,” he noted.
“The secretary also wants to verify the projects so that we can have an integrated plan within three months so we can program this proposed project,” Cruz said.
