         The acquisition of heavy equipment has contributed lot of             developments in the municipality, especially, to the remote             barangays that cannot be reached by any land                         transportation. 

The aim to develop farming activities in the municipality is evident as construction/ rehabilitation/ regravelling of farm to market roads continue to crawl and expand in the entire municipality, with the used of the newly acquired heavy equipment. 

On the other hand, the aim also to increase the financial stability of the municipality, systematic schemes on tax collection were being made possible to inspire delinquent taxpayers to respond their obligations to the government by paying taxes regularly and on time scheduled. The conduct of information drive in different barangays has open-wide the mind of taxpayers to support the program.
