Filling the void created by the untimely passing of Mayor Angelo ‘Roncal’ Montilla, incumbent Vice Mayor Lino Montilla yesterday took his oath of office as the new mayor of Tacurong City. Late Mayor Angelo Montilla passed away on Sunday, June 6, after he succumbed to COVID-19. Vice Mayor Montilla’s assumption to mayoralty post is in consonance with Section 44 of Local Government Code stating that “if a permanent vacancy occurs in the office of the governor or mayor, the vice governor or vice mayor concerned shall become the governor or mayor.” Montilla took his oath of office before Punong Barangay Maria Rhodora Pauya and witnessed by City Local Government Operations Officer Victoria Dolido. Meanwhile, citing the same provision of Section 44, Sangguning Panlungsod Member Lalaine Montilla, being the councilor with the highest number of votes in the 2019 elections, subsequently took her oath of office as the new vice mayor.
Pormal nang nai-turn over o naibigay sa lokal na pamahalaan ngayong araw ang completed project na “opening of farm to market road” sa bahagi ng Barangay Rajah Muda.
Ang proyektong nagkakahalaga ng mahigit P2.21 million ay pinondohan ng lokal na pamahalaan at naglalayong maglagay ng panibagong farm to market road na pakikinabangan ng maraming mamamayan sa naturang barangay. Pinangunahan ni Mayor Roncal Montilla ang turn over ng proyekto mula sa supplier.
Kasama din sa aktibidad ang mga kasapi ng Sangguniang Panlungsod sa pangunguna ni Vice Mayor Lino Montilla.
Bilang kinatawan ng kanyang ka-baranggay, ipinaabot naman ni Punong Barangay Ma. Rhodora Pauya ang kanyang pasasalamat sa walang humpay na serbisyong dala sa kanila ng lokal na pamahalaan.
The 8th Sangguniang Panlungsod of Tacurong City held its first joint session with the Barangay Council of Poblacion on August 14, 2019.
Vice Mayor Lino Montilla presided over the joint session together with Punong Barangay Jose Lim V.
