Tramline for Barangay Cabintan

Syntax error in album specification. Album does not exist: 245

Rep. Lucy Torres-Gomez is here with Brgy. Kapitan Alfredo Pachacala at the highest point of Brgy. Cabintan, a place upland in Ormoc City where year round the residents enjoy cool weather (very similar to Tagaytay weather). This is where beautiful flowers like milflores thrive in abundance, and where high value crops are grown and harvested. During her first term in 2010, one of the congresswoman’s early projects was to provide a tramline for them.

From a point about 552 meters down, the harvested crops are loaded into a steel box, and the cable wire is shaken to alert the person manning the outpost that a bounty is on its way. It travels the length of the cable and then the steel box lands where we are standing. The vegetables are not bruised in transit and the farmers are able to command a fair price.

The association manning it charges 50 cents to 1 peso per kilo or 100 pesos per trip. The load capacity of the steel box is 450 kilos. Before this tramline was built, the farmers would have to physically carry their produce on baskets suspended from their back. That is thankfully now just a thing of the past.

Cong. Lucy would like to thank DA Sec. Procy Alcala again for making this possible, for his untiring effort in making this project a reality.

The 6200: Mission Possible project just keeps going and giving!

Sixty more motorized fiberglass bancas each with its own outboard motor were distributed to as many registered fishermen in the city of Ormoc. These fishermen are among 6200 registered fisherfolk that lost their bancas to Typhoon Yolanda in November 2013.

Rep. Lucy Torres-Gomez’s 6200: Mission Possible cooperates and coordinates with various private sector entities in the 4th District of Leyte and other parts of the country for the local manufacture of the fiberglass bancas and purchase of the outboard motors.

In simple but happy ceremonies on November 8, 2015 the fishermen received their boats and outboard motors from Congresswoman Lucy Torres-Gomez, who was flanked by the following members of the Ormoc City LGU:

Hon. Vince Rama, City Councilor
Hon. Tommy Serafica, City Councilor
Hon. Bennet Pongos, City Councilor
Hon. Mayong Rodriquez, City Councilor
