Dagupan 2022 annual city budget can still be passed by new SP

By May 9, 2022Inside News

THE 2022 annual city budget of Dagupan can still be passed and approved by the present Sangguniang Panlungsod after the May 9 election or by the new set of SP members that will assume office on July 1, 2022.

This was affirmed by City Secretary Ryan Ravanzo when the SP still did not schedule a special session when it could not hold a regular session last Tuesday because it was declared a special non-working public holiday.

Meanwhile, the city government continues to operate using the reenacted budget approved in 2021.

The past sessions of the SP since the start of the campaign period could not be convened because of lack of quorum.

The city council earlier said the delay in the passage of the 2022 budget was caused initially by failure of the city mayor’s office to submit the required documents last year as mandated by the Department of Budget and Management and the Department of the Interior and Local Government to support the submitted Annual Investment Plan.  (Leonardo Micua)
