The Program Coordination Office of Lake Mainit Development Alliance turn-over 1 unit patrol boat to LGU-Kitcharao, Agusan del Norte on February 15, 2011 held at Barangay San Roque Hall, Kitcharao, Agusan del Norte. A Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) signed between the LMDA-PCO and Municipality of Kitcharao and MOA signed between LGU-Kitcharao and Barangay San Roque, Kitcharao, Agusan del Norte highlighted the turn-over ceremony. Hon. Jenry E. Montante, Municipal Mayor and Engr. Kaiser B. Recabo, Jr., LMDA Director led the ceremonial turn-over. Said activity was also graced By Hon. Victorio I. Gonde, SB Committee Chair on Environment, Hon. Noel P. Alburo, Barangay Captain of San Roque, Kitcharao, Agusan del Norte. The program was facilitated by Mr. Omar C. Barillo, volunteer at LMDA.

Another one unit patrol boat was turn-over by LMDA to LGU-Jabonga, Agusan del Norte last November 2, 2010. Mayor Glicerio M. Monton Jr. personally accepts the patrol boat during the turn-over ceremony and signing of MOA with the presence of Vice Mayor Danny M. Moran and Municipal Agriculture personnel.

The patrol boat will be used in the implementation of the Sustainable Fishery Management Program (SFM) and the existing Unified Fishery Ordinance (UFO) of Lake Mainit. The said patrol boat is a grant project from Philippine-Australia Community Assistance Program (PACAP) through the effort of the LMDA-PCO. Although the PACAP contract was already ended last year however, this is the continued commitment of PACAP and LMDA in support to lakeshore municipalities for the tough enforcement of the Unified Fishery Ordinance in the protection of Lake Mainit.
