Mayor James “Bong” Gordon, Jr. extended his commendations to agencies that participated in the 2009 OPLAN KALULUWA, a yearly undertaking held from the last days of October to the first two days of November to assist motorists, pedestrians, and thousands of visitors in the city’s cemeteries.
In behalf of Mayor Gordon, Vice-Mayor Cynthia Cajudo recognized and commended the efforts of the Disaster Management Office (DMO), Office of Traffic Management and Public Safety (OTMPS), Public Utilities Department (PUD), Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP), James L. Gordon Memorial Hospital (JLGMH), Olongapo City Police Office (OCPO), Environmental Sanitation and Management Office (ESMO), City Health Office, Engineering Office, Public Affairs Office and of the Philippine National Red Cross-Olongapo Chapter.
Vice-Mayor Cajudo also expressed the city government’s gratitude to the barangay leaders and volunteers from Kalaklan, Sta. Rita, Old Cabalan together with the civic communication groups who rendered their assistance to the 2009 Oplan Kaluluwa.
It can be recalled that, a month earlier, Mayor Gordon tasked said government agencies to lead the clean-up of the city’s cemeteries and to ensure orderly pedestrian and vehicular traffic conditions along the roads and streets near the graveyard areas.
