DOLE 12 gives P800K livelihood grant to informal workers in Tacurong

Forty-eight workers in Tacurong’s informal economy are set to receive their livelihood starter kits after the Department of Labor and Employment released on September 7 the check amounting to P800,997.40 intended for them.

DOLE 12 Regional Director Raymundo Agravante and DOLE Sultan Kudarat Field Office Head Mary Jane Hoksuan personally turned over the livelihood check to the barangay council of San Pablo at the Office of Mayor Angelo Montilla.

Prior to the turnover of check, Director Agravante and San Pablo Punong Barangay Jacob signed the Memorandum of Agreement relative to the implementation of the project.

The project will have to go through the procurement process and once the winning bidders completely deliver all the starter kits for the beneficiaries, payment will be made.

Barangay San Pablo serves as Accredited Co-Partner (ACP) in this undertaking whose beneficiaries are also residents of said barangay.

As ACP, the barangay council is tasked to monitor the individual projects once they start operating.

This livelihood endeavor is under the DOLE Integrated Livelihood Project (DILP) that aims to provide tools and jigs to workers in the informal sector.

Informal workers are those who are self-employed and not receiving salaries or wages from any government agency or private company.

The beneficiaries under this project are food processors & vendors, carpenters, dressmakers, welders, and vulcanizing workmen.

Since the project is a grant, the beneficiaries need not be burdened by paying any loan amortization.

Instead, they just have to take care of the tools given to them and make sure that their projects serve as income generators to augment the needs of their respective families. (ASF, LGU Information)

Tacurong deputizes new traffic enforcers

In an effort to regain public trust in the traffic laws enforcement of the city, the Local Government Unit of Tacurong revamped the Traffic Management Unit of the city’s police station.

Starting with a thorough screening process in July, the applicants were selected based on their previous commendable performance as traffic enforcers. The successful applicants were rehired in August, and then they were sent by the City Human Resource Management Office to attend training and seminars by the Land Transportation Office (LTO) Region XII. A final test was administered to determine who will become part of the final roster.

On 3 September 2020, twenty three (23) new traffic enforcers were named and were deputized in a program held at the Tacurong City Cultural and Sports Center.

City Mayor Angelo O. Montilla personally witnessed the deputation and encouraged the newly minted enforcers to serve with integrity in order to turn the public’s disdain to that of trust and respect to the city’s traffic unit.

Always a committed partner of the city, Macario D. Gonzaga, Regional Director of LTO Region XII also attended the event bringing with him 16 traffic enforcers from the regional office to brief and orient the new traffic enforcers on the field.

Also in attendance were City Councilor Remo Y. Flores, Vice-Chairperson of the Sangguniang Panlungsod’s Committee on Transportation; PLTCOL REY D EGOS, Chief of Police of Tacurong City PNP; Elma B. Indanao, City Human Resource Management Officer; Engr. Noel Calmorin, Supervising Transportation Regulations Officer; Atty. Shahani M. Racman, Chief of Operation Division, LTO Region XII; and, Mary Ann D. Trabado, LTO Tacurong District Registrar.

Right after the program, the newly deputized traffic enforcers were deployed to the streets to immediately effect the existing traffic laws and ordinances of the city. (YMR, LGUTac-Info)

Montilla joins employees in recollection

Tacurong City — In a move that is uncommon even among LGUs, City Mayor Angelo O. Montilla ordered an LGU-wide recollection seminar aimed at strengthening camaraderie and behavioral transformation among employees.

In lieu of the usual out-of-town team building activities that tend to distract from the purpose, the mayor believes that a focused one-day session will achieve better results.

Entitled “Personal Transformation: Shaping Behavior Towards Success at Work”, the recollection focused on adjusting one’s character to embody the core values, mission, and vision of the city government.

For his part, Montilla refused special treatment and showed that he is just another public servant of the LGU: he patiently sat through the entire seminar and received the same certificate of completion as with everyone else by the end.

With over 800 employees, the LGU offices were divided into clusters and will undergo the said seminar in five schedules. The first 2 batches have finished last March 5 and 6, respectively.

Rene Gerardo A. Lizada is resource speaker of the entire seminar.(YMR, LGUTac-Info)
