All Bohol towns will soon have their own favorite infrastructure projects courtesy of Cabinet Secretary Leoncio Evasco.

Evasco said the mayors can hand in their proposals to Rep. Erico Aristotle “Aris” Aumentado (Bohol, 2nd District). In turn, Aumentado will forward the proposals to Evasco, and the latter, to the national government agency concerned.

He says the project can be a road, multi-purpose building, irrigation or small water impounding project and the like.
