Candijay Ground Breaks for Tourism Highway
The safe and smooth travel to and from barangay Cogtongwill soon be a long-time dream come true when the ground breaking rites for the concreting of roads from barangay Cogtong to SitioSagumay of barangay Tawid was finally conducted last April 22, 2014.
Said project was drawn from the convergence program of the Department of Tourism and the Department of Public Works and Highways by way of implementing a Provincial Road Tourism Highway. It was one among the key developmental programs which Mayor Christopher B. Tutor insistently lobbied to higher officials of the country to be granted in his hometown.
With God’s blessing and through the intercessions of the Provincial Officials led by Governor Edgardo M. Chatto and Congressman Arthur C. Yap, the municipality will soon become opportune to a highly accessible road leading not only to beaches, resorts and some of its potential tourism sites but also to its tertiary level academic institution, the Bohol Island State University, in barangay Cogtong which caters not only local students but also from neighboring towns and provinces.
The ceremony was graced by the presence of Governor Edgar M. Chatto, Vice Governor Concepcion O. Lim with the Provincial Board Members, Congressman Arthur C. Yap, representatives from the Department of Tourism and Department of Public Works and Highways, Mayor Christopher B. Tutor and Vice Mayor Jessie M. Sales with the Sangguniang Bayan members and some executive members as well as the barangay officials led by barangay captains Arnielo S. Olandria of Cogtong and ArcelisCimagala of Tawid #30.
