35 farmers from Barangays Imelda and Barangay Kimaya received financial assistance after their crops were damaged by a flash flood in November 2021.
With the help of the barangay, these farmers were assessed and certified by the Punong barangay and later validated by the Municipal Agriculture Office as legitimate recipients of LGU assistance. Said assistance is hoped to help these farmers bounce back and be able to continue their farming activities.
In a simple turn-over ceremony held at the Municipal Hall lobby on February 3, 2022, Mayor Jennie Rosalie Uy-Mendez personally handed down the financial assistance of Five Thousand Pesos per affected farmers. It was also attended by the members of the Sanguniang Bayan lead by Kag Jovinel Javiniao, the committee chair on Agriculture and Barangay Kag. Danilo Buntag of Imelda and Kag. Jecelyn Mendoza of Kimaya.
