This was announced by Mayor Evelio Leonardia during the celebration of the 159th birthday of Dr. Jose P. Rizal on Friday, at the Rizal Park located in front of Rizal Elementary School on Araneta Street.

Leonardia, along with Councilors Archie Baribar and Bartolome Orola, Department of Education (DepEd) Bacolod officer-in-charge-schools division superintendent Gladys Amylaine Sales, Rizal Elementary School principal Dennis Estaniel, and other principals and school heads, also led the unveiling of the architectural perspective for the rehabilitation of the said project.

Leonardia said that the budget for the said project was allocated by the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) using the Local Government Support Fund – Assistance to Cities (LGSF – AC).

He said that one of the main features of the city’s economic recovery program was government spending because of the consequential job creation.

He also said that working on this rehabilitation project would translate to income for workers, and sales for local hardwares and stores.

“To whoever much is given, much is expected,” the local chief executive said.

He said that the improvement of Rizal Park will contribute to the “immortalization” of the national hero.

He was hoping that people will continue to preserve the monument, and also make sure that it will become an attraction in Bacolod.
