During a project tour on Friday (Feb. 11), Mayor Arman Dimaguila said that the lot for the project measures eight hectares, including the area allotted for the new Biñan City Jail.

According to Dimaguila, the new city jail will have a livelihood center and its location along the lakeshore will be beneficial.

“Kapag may malapit nang lumaya, meron tayong livelihood center dito, pwede munang mag-alaga ng isda, so walang problema sa pagkain. Gulay, maraming kangkungan dito (For those nearing the end of their sentence, there will be a livelihood center, they can raise fish, so there will be no problem with food. Vegetables, there are water spinach farms here),” Dimaguila said.
