THE Dagupan Sangguniang Panlungsod (SP) is deliberating on a proposed ordinance certified as urgent by Mayor Brian Lim providing for a comprehensive reorganization of the executive departments in the Dagupan City government.

Proposed Ordinance No, 0790 filed by Councilor Librada Reyna with Councilor Celia Lim as co-sponsor, now on its second reading in the SP, calls for a three-phase reorganization that will start this year.

In sponsoring the measure, Councilor Reyna said the reorganization will implement the findings and recommendations of the University of the Philippines-National College of Administration and Governance done in 1993 and 2001. Only the establishment of the One-Stop Shop Business Center was implemented.

In a briefing conducted by Atty. Mike Datario, chief executive assistant of Mayor Lim, the first to be created is the Executive Management Group (EMG), a team “that must be dedicated to provide the needs of the mayor” as he discharges his official functions.

He said the reorganization will also separate the office of the city administrator from the office of the city mayor and be treated as a separate department in a bid to strengthen it since  the personnel of that office were from other departments.

The reorganization plan, according to Reyna, requires:

  1. Elevation of offices into separate departments and the integration or transfer of units from their departments to another departments.
  2. Creation of new positions to meet the changing needs of the local government and ensure that only the qualified and competent personnel will discharge critical functions and duties and
  3. Transfer of identified plantilla positions to their mother units in order to realign their functions.

The objective is to implement Phase 2 and 3 of the reorganization plan next year when LGUs will be allocated more shares from the Internal Revenue Allotment. (Leonardo Micua)
