HON. PAOLO ELEAZAR C. DELMENDO
I am pleased to present the 2017 State of Barangay Governance Report which contains the performance of Barangay District II in the Six (6) aspects of Governance, namely, Administrative System and Procedure, Legislative Services, Extent of Community Participation, Social Services, Economic Development and Environmental Management.
This report shall serve as the basis in the formulation of programs, projects and activities geared a more effective and efficient delivery of services to the constituents. It will also be a reference in crafting the Barangay Agenda as embodied in Barangay Development Plan.
The report aims to strengthen the partnership of the Barangay with National Government Agencies (NGA’s), higher Local Government Units (LGU’s) Non Governmental Organizations (NGO’s) and other stakeholders as it presents a vivid picture of the development condition of the barangay. Above all, it aims to increase the awareness of the residents on the State of the Barangay, so that they become more involved and participative in barangay affairs.
Lastly, my sincere/heartfelt gratitude to the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) in coming with a Barangay Governance Performance Management System (BGPMS) which paved way to the formulation of this report.
Work hand in hand to realize our dream of achieving great results.
To establish a productive barangay with our willingness to work, good leadership and effective governance.
In terms of historical beginnings District II is a young Barangay compared with other Barangays in the City Of Cauayan with historical account that begun during the Spanish period. It was only during the second term of Ex-Mayor Tranquilino Dalupang (1956-1964) that the town proper of Cauayan was divided into “poblacion”, thus creating three separate districts. Each was identified as “poblacion uno”, “poblacion dos”, “poblacion tres”, from which Barangay District II was born.
In the earliest part of the 70’s, it was the late Ex-Mayor Jose A. Africano Sr., who served as Barangay Captain. His tenure was short because of his responsibility at the Provincial Capitol in Ilagan. He was then one of the advisers of Governor Faustino N. Dy Sr.
Mr. Efigenio Toledo, a College instructor of Political and Social Sciences at the Isabela Colleges became the Barangay Captain in February 19, 1972. An Induction Program and Inaugural Dance were held on this date at the Isabela Colleges Quadrangle, to honor the outgoing Barangay Captain Mr. Africano and incoming official Mr. Toledo.
The few years of service of Mr. Africano left a legacy to Barangay District II. It was during his term that the lot presently occupied by the Barangay Hall, Library, RHU-I and the buildings around, was donated by Dr. Basilio B. Reyes. The original plan was to construct a Children Playground in the name of Dr. Reyes two daughter: Marilou and Rosemarie. Mr. Toledo started his project. In fact, initial playground facilities were already being enjoyed by the barangay during the years 1973 to 1974. There were slides, see-saw, swing, to the delight of the nearby residents. In march 30, 1974, Mr. Efigenio Toledo, the energetic and dedicated Barangay Captain passed away with his boots on. His ultimately demise affected the completion of the Childrens Playground.
On April 14, 1974, Mr. Teodulfo Parrallag took his oath of office as Barangay Captain being the first councilman. He served his constituents with dedication from 1974 to 1979.
Mrs. Consuelo R. Forornda who was then a resident of Roxas St., District II, and a College Instrutor of Isabela Colleges was appointed as Barangay Captain in July 4, 1979. Her contribution to the barangay District II is indeed significant. A part of her legacy is the historical records, that will served as reference about the previous Barangay officials of District II and other related activities.
In 1982, Mr. Jose A. Africano’s desire to serve once again his Kabarangay, became the Barangay Captain for the second time. As a former Mayor of Cauayan, his being a public servant still ran fervently in his blood. That is why even in his twilight years he still served his Barangay in his own humble capacity. He passed away on June 4, 1984. From 1984 to 1987, Mr. Francisco Vallejo was tasked to be the Barangay Captain of District II. Just like his predecessors, Mr. Vallejo was truly committed to his work. It was during his term in 1987, that the new Constitution was enacted. Thus in 1988 there was a transition process in terms of electing the Barangay captain.
A year after, Mr. Rosendo D. Africano took the same position as the Barangay Captain of District II from 1989 to 1992 after Mr. Artemio Dimaculangan resigned as Barangay Captain. In April 1992 the construction of the Barangay hall begun. It was the first Barangay Hall to be constructed during the administration of former Governor Benjamin G. Dy, who was then Governor of Isabela, and during the term of Congressman Faustino “Bogie” Dy III who was the town Mayor of Cauayan at the same time.
Mr. Pablo T. Rivera Jr. was elected Barangay Captain of District II in 1992 and served his constituents until 2002. It was during his incumbency that District II was awarded Model barangay for the first time. It was also during his incumbency that the Barangay hall of District II was re-modeled and completed as you see it today. The construction of District II Health Center and Marirose Day Care Center were also constructed and
completed during the administration of Barangay Captain Pablo T. Rivera, Jr. Open Line Drainage Canals were also constructed in every purok of the Barangay.Mr. Pablo T. Rivera Jr. had a stroke due to high blood pressure in April 2002 that made him paralyzed and physically unfit to do his responsibilities as a Barangay Captain so, Mr. Hillario Cortes, the first kagawad elect, took over the responsibility of Barangay captain for three months.The Barangay Elections held in July 15, 2002 gave way to Mr. Rosendo D. Africano to serve District II once again as Barangay Captain.
The Barangay elections on October 30, 2007 paved the way for Mrs. Josephine M. Rivera, a retired teacher and a wife of former Barangay Captain Pablo T. Rivera Jr. to serve Barangay District II as Punong Barangay. Punong Barangay Josephine M. Rivera serve her constituents with the fullest honesty and integrity, the valid reasons why she was re-elected twice as Punong Barangay. Her finish re-election was on October 29, 2010 and her second re-election was on October 30, 2013, She serve her barangay for three consecutive terms with hard work and dedication. It was during her incumbency the barangay outpost was put-up, construction of the Barangay Library was completed, the Barangay Health Center was renovated, beautification projects were implemented, murals on RA 9003 were painted on the vacant spaces in the barangay, CCTV camera’s were installed along the streets of the barangay to help ensure peace and order in the barangay. Solar Panel Lights were also installed along the streets of the barangay which is a big help to minimize electrical consumption, new fiber glass basketball board with timer was installed at the Barangay Community Center, painting of beautiful mural at the Barangay Community Center is an added attraction to constituents, concreting of the fence with interlinks of the Barangay Community Center was completed, concreting of the pavement surrounding the Barangay Hall was also completed installation of spotlights in the Barangay paint of the flooring of the Barangay Community Center, construction of open line drainage canals in the in the barangay, concreting of Barangay roads were completed, improvement of the Barangay Hall, purchase of Barangay Patrol vehicle and other facilities for better working convenience of the Sangguniang Barangay and Staff, All these projects and accomplishments were accomplished with the Sangguniang Members of the Barangay who worked together hand in hand to realize great results.
