The high profile of success the Loboc local government unit has gained in tourism will shift gear to education when it will open the Loboc Learning College for Excellence (LLCE) next year.
This was the statement issued by Mayor Leon Calipusan whose brand of performance as a town executive has become the envy of many because of the several success stories implemented during his eight-year stint as mayor of the town.
The construction of an eight-classroom building at the designated Ambassador Carlos Chan campus, the benefactor of the project will commence momentarily.
Once operational, the LLCE will have tourism and education as the initial courses to be offered once it will open in June next year
This new undertaking of opening a college under the Calipusan administration is unprecedented in the annals of LGUs in the province.
The Loboc town mayor said that the development thrust of Loboc is a never ending vision after having been inspired by “landmark” projects like the Loboc River Tourism Complex which includes the well appointed docking port of the floating restos and the recently opened Loboc Eco Adventure Park.
The adventure park which has its zipline and a cable car cost the Loboc LGU P14 million. At the site will be the soon to be completed restaurant and a view deck which targets to open by May in time for the Tigum Bol-anon sa Tibook Kalibutan (TBTYK). The park is now generating initial gross income of P6t00,000 monthly manned by 35 LGU paid employees.
The docking port which was the first gigantic project of Mayor Calipusan;s administration is now generating a monthly gross income of P3.5 million.
The town takes pride to be the highest paying LGU for casual employees who get a daily wage of P230, even higher than what the Tagbilaran LGU is paying at more than P100 only.
