(January 15, 2012) As the Local Government Unit of Tacurong welcomed another year of public service to its constituents, it opened the Business One Stop Shop from January 2-20 at the City Hall Building, City of Tacurong.
            Services offered by the Business One Stop Shop include the acquisition or renewal of business permits. To make the processing of required documents faster and hassle-free, LGU and other concerned offices are convened in just one venue.
            These offices are the City Engineering Office, City Planning and Development Coordinating Office, Environment and Natural Resources Office, Department of Trade and Industry, PhilHealth, Bureau of Fire Protection, Social Security System, Bureau of Internal Revenue, Philippine National Police, and License Inspection Services Office.
            Hezel Ochada, 56, owner of a sari-sari store in Public Terminal, expressed her gratitude with this organized service of the local government. “Mas okay na subong kay ara na tanan nga kinahanglan ko. Kag step by step, gina-guide ka gid kung anu-ano ang mga himoon mo,” Ochada said.
            This undertaking of the Local Government of Tacurong in this early part of 2012 is an assurance that its services to its constituents will always be on their reach and can be easily accessed all throughout the year. [Jessa Loreta C. Billano]
