REPRESENTATIVE Roman C. Benavente on Tuesday convinced the Commonwealth Utilities Corp. to provide power to the Koblerville basketball court so children can play there in the evening.

Benavente said CUC also suggested the use of a prepaid card and the installation of a switch box with a lock.

This way, Benavente said, CUC can monitor the power consumption.

Benavente, who also initiated the rebuilding of the fence around the basketball court, likewise expressed his gratitude to Tan Holdings president Jerry Tan.

The lawmaker said it was Tan who helped him and the Koblerville community rehabilitate the sports facility destroyed by Super Typhoon Yutu. “He is very much involved in cleaning up this area and making sure that this sports facility is well taken care of,” Benavente said of Tan.

Benavente also acknowledged the support of the Department of Public Works in completing the rehabilitation of the Koblerville basketball court, which includes the installation of a new fence.

Francisco M. Sablan Middle School sixth grader and basketball player Jesus Moses said: “Thank you, Representative Benavente for fixing our basketball court.”

Benavente said the basketball court is one of his community projects in Precinct 1. The others are the bus shelters in Koblerville, beach pavilions in San Antonio, Obyan and Ladder beaches, a picnic pavilion and a children’s playground in Koblerville.
