Cities awarded best legislative councils
Posted by Online on Jan 19th, 2013

– Two cities from Pampanga have been awarded the Regional Local Legislative Awards (LLA) by the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) and the Philippine Councilors League (PCL) for exemplary performance in passing and adopting effective resolutions for their constituents, DILG announced Friday.

Angeles City received the awards for Highly Urbanized City category while San Fernando is the honoree for the component city category.
Meanwhile, Cuyapo in Nueva Ecija received the awards for 1st to 3rd class municipality, and Samal in Bataan for 4th to 6th class municipality.
“The Award recognizes the exemplary performance of Sanggunians of cities and municipalities in legislating measures that help build the foundation of meaningful local administration and development,” Local Government information officer Miriam Gaviola explained.
Gaviola said that for this current term, performances of local councils from July 1, 2010 to June 30, 2012 were reviewed.
Gaviola explained that the said regional honorees will automatically become Central Luzon’s national bets in the said national search for best legislative councils.
Winners were chosen by a committee composed of the DILG Regional Director as chair and PCL Regional Council head as vice chairman with the Regional Chiefs of Department of Agriculture, Department of Social Welfare and Development, Department of Budget and Management, and Department of Environment and Natural Resources and representative from the Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry as members.
