BALON DAGUPAN NEWS

TO further bring the government closer to the people, Mayor Belen T. Fernandez has re-launched its Barangay Consultative Assembly program last January 8 in Barangay Mangin.

According to Fernandez, the consultative assembly enables the city government not only to have a first-hand knowledge about the needs and problems in the grassroots level, but provides an efficient way in addressing the needs.

Fernandez added that through the assembly, the city government can develop future programs and projects, and plan for the 2016 annual budget.

The department heads explained the services provided by the local government.

Carbonell discussed the continuous medical missions being conducted in barangays, as well as the planned construction of the city’s first diagnostic center while Rosario discussed the infrastructure needs of the barangay. Liwanag talked about the free registration of unregistered births while Alcantara reminded delinquent property owners to pay their taxes.

Meanwhile, Aquino reminded the residents about feeding and livelihood programs for indigents.

Also present during the consultation was Mangin Punong Barangay Benedict Cayabyab, who expressed his gratitude to the LGU for bringing the city closer to the barangay.

Mabuti ang programang ito para sa mas magandang koordinasyon ng aming barangay at sa lokal na gobyerno,” said Cayabyab. (CIO photo by Jojo Tamayo)
