The recognition came with a P150,000 cash award given by the Department of Health (DOH) in a ceremony held on December 21, 2010 in Butuan City. Marihatag Mayor Leo Navarro, together with the municipal health officer, Sanitary Inspector Officer and Brgy Captain Rebecca Polinar received the said amount from DOH-Caraga regional director Leonita Gorgolon.
Strict implementation of ordinances by the barangay councils was a major factor that pushed people in the community to exert effort to support the good governance in the area.

The annual evaluation and assessment of 19 LGUs was conducted thru the “Gawad Probinsiya sa Kapaligiran” (GPK) Program aimed at saving the environment. (PIA-Surigao del Sur)
