This southernmost city of Nueva Ecija is aiming to become the province’s first “Smart City” with its plan to put up a command center that is fully-equipped with 250 sets of closed circuit television (CCTV) camera, said City Mayor Emerson “Emeng” Pascual.
Pascual, the former Barangay Pambuan chairman-turned city mayor who won his second term unopposed which is a record first in the city’s political history, said the CCTV project is being funded by the city government at P49-million and is expected to help aid authorities in the traffic management and monitoring and in the maintenance of the city’s peace and order situation, including crime prevention and solution.
“Lalagyan din natin ng CCTV ang mga entrance at exit points ng lungsod at maging sa mga boundary, said the city mayor, who described his brand of public service rendered to the people as similar to that given by a “kapamilya” and not coming from a “traditional” politician.
Other worthy projects being lined up by the city mayor for this year are the “Botika ng Gapan City” where local residents can avail of free medicine; the blessing of a free Gapan City dialysis center; and the construction of the Gapan City Hospital which will provide free medical care and service to his constituents.
