BAGUIO CITY – Members of the city council have passed 459 resolutions and 133 ordinances last year or almost double their production in 2016 of 319 resolutions and 69 ordinances approved.
This was revealed by Vice-Mayor Edison Bilog in Monday’s flag-raising rites at City hall before local officials and employees led by Mayor Mauricio Domogan and Rep. Mark Go.
Bilog said the august body has been working double-time, even as late as until 9 in the evening, to formulate and craft measures that would help solve or ease the city’s problems and benefit their constituents.
He added that the local legislature took to heart the Mayor’s weekly challenge for government officials and workers to continuously double and improve their efforts in serving the public, and doing just that.
“We (city council) hope to pass even more pertinent resolutions and ordinances in 2018 that will benefit the people of Baguio,” Bilog declared.
Domogan earlier thanked and congratulated local civil servants for a successful 2017, the Mayor exhorted a doubling of efforts this year in bringing quality and courteous service to the public and put them above personal considerations.
He pointed out that every member of government, no matter what position, performs an important role in the effectiveness, efficiency and success of any administration.
The chief executive stressed that serving the public cheerfully and with respect, to the best of their abilities and without expecting anything in return is the essence of being a civil servant. /Gaby Keith
