BAGUIO CITY – Mayor Mauricio G. Domogan ordered some twenty punong barangays to liquidate more than P15 million livelihood funds that were downloaded to their barangays to prevent the non-release of future assistance to beneficiaries of the government’s livelihood assistance program in the future.
The local chief executive informed the concerned punong barangays to submit to the labor department their complete liquidation reports to avoid being marked in bad standing and to allow more residents to benefit from the livelihood assistance being extended by the agency to concerned barangays.
