The Murcia government in Negros Occidental Tuesday distributed land titles for free to 43 families, many of whom have been occupying municipal government-owned properties in Brgy. Cansilayan for over 50 years, a Murcia press release said.
Joan Nathaniel Gerangaya, head of the Community Environment and Natural Resources Office, who helped fast track the issuance of land titles, with municipal assessor Randy Gamboa, under the “Handog Titulo ni Andrew” program, attended the event along with Cansilayan Brgy. Captain Allan Baliguas and councilors Adrian Olimpo and Ramie Gravino, chairman of the Sangguniang Committee on Housing.
Murcia Mayor Andrew Montelibano, who also solemnized the wedding of 25 couples on Valentine’s Day earlier in the day, led the distribution that also included lot titles for service roads and alleys in puroks Daisy and Santan, as well as the 9,038-square meter area on which the Cansilayan Elementary School is standing on, the press release said.
