The National Food Authority’s (NFA) warehouse in the municipality of Brooke’s Point, southern Palawan, is undergoing partial repair for the safety of rice storage, an official said.

NFA assistant provincial manager Nerilyn Conde said the warehouse’s roofing is being repaired since it has never gone rehabilitation from the time of its construction.

However, she said the repair of the warehouse will not affect its daily operations.

“Under inspection kasi ang roofing namin kasi ever since ay ‘di napalitan. Nagkaroon kami ng partial reroofing ng aming skylight. Hopefully, na ma-i-propose ‘yon sa higher management ‘yong total replacement ng roof (Our roofing there is undergoing inspection because the materials were never changed. We only had a partial reroofing of our skylight. Hopefully, we can propose the total replace of the roof to the higher management),” Conde said.

Conde said the NFA is providing funds for initial repairs for the meantime. However, their agency will state the need for total replacement in their 2020 budget allotment.

In a social media post of the agency on January 29, the NFA said Engr. Domingo Tamesis was in Puerto Princesa to conduct an inspection on the site of the proposed NFA Palawan Provincial Building, including the warehouse in the town of Brooke’s Point “in order to facilitate repair and maintenance accordingly”.

Meanwhile, the contractor of the proposed NFA provincial office building, E.M. Abin Trading and Construction, has started its site layout staking on January 22 in Brgy. Sta. Monica.
