Angeles City to receive P25M from DILG for good governance

by Joelyn G. Baluyut

ANGELES CITY, Pampanga, Jan. 6 (PIA) –- Because of its exemplary performance in governance, full disclosure policy, transparency, and accountability, the city government here will receive P25 million from the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) as part of its program on Local Government Support Fund (LGSF).

In a letter sent to City Mayor Edgardo Pamintuan, DILG Secretary Jesse Robredo said, “the fund shall be utilized as capital expenditures and shall be used to augment the approved 2012 Annual Investment Plan of the city.”

Pamintuan disclosed that, “the said fund will supplement the expected reduction of our Internal Revenue Allotments (IRA) share this year. And the infrastructure projects that will be funded using the LGSF were already identified and submitted to the DILG for approval.”

“As soon as the DILG has determined the soundness of the project, it will be endorsed to the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) for fund processing,” he said.

Robredo added that the amount given shall only be used for implementation of any or combination of the following projects: rural electrification; local roads connecting national roads; arterial farm-to-market roads and bridges; local economic enterprises; flood control and drainage; and to support the following priority projects of the National Government: Millennium Development Goals (MDG), Philippine Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Act of 2010, and Solid Waste Management Act of 2000.

The city has also excelled in the areas of planning, budgeting, revenue mobilization, financial management and budget execution, procurement, and resource mobilization, thus having been a recipient of the “Seal of Good Housekeeping,” an award given by the DILG to local government units (LGUs).
