Accompanied by the different heads of offices, the assessment team visited the different areas and offices of LGU-Tacurong that are involved in the criteria being validated. They inspected three full disclosure policy compliance boards located in conspicuous areas in the city, namely, the public terminal, SP building, and the lobby area of the Tacurong city hall. They visited the sanitation landfill and materials recycling facility of the city in brgy. Upper Katungal and the early warning system of Kapingkong river located in brgy. Rajah Muda. At the city hall, the team assessed the express lanes for PWDs, senior citizens, and pregnant women; and, the hand-rails and grab bars at the entrance, exit, and restrooms of the city hall building.

Once qualified, the entry of LGU-Tacurong will be submitted to the national level where winners will be selected, indorsed, and approved by the secretary of the DILG. Final selection will be in August 2016 and announcement of winners will be in September 2016.

Also known as Pagkilala sa Katapatan at Kahusayan ng Pamahalaang Lokal, the SGLG award and incentive program aims to encourage and challenge all the provinces, cities, and municipalities in the country to achieve excellence in their performance and service delivery across core areas of financial administration, disaster preparedness, and social protection; and, any one of the essential areas, namely, business friendliness and competitiveness, peace and order, and environmental management.

“This award is for all of us; so, give your effort and talent, not only to your respective offices, but also to others because this recognition will be for the city and for the region,” encouraged City Mayor Lina O. Montilla during the exit briefing of the 2-day assessment. (Yen Robles, LGU-Tacurong Information)

Present to show their support in all the events were Mayor Lina O. Montilla, Vice Mayor Joseph George Lechonsito, and Councilor Psyche M. Sucaldito.

“Inabot na tayo ng umaga pero andito pa rin ang officials (ng LGU-Tacurong). Nakaka-inspire ang suporta ng LGU-Tacurong sa union,” said PSEAS President Restituto Facurib Jr.

Through this show of talents, PSEAS aims to promote solidarity among its 27 member-associations throughout the region.
