Additional cash gift for City Hall employees OKd
Better late than never.
This was the reaction of City Hall employees after the Sangguniang Panlungsod has approved the additional P5,000 cash gift. The said amount comes on top of the earlier P5,000 cash bonus given to them during the Yuletide Season.
The council approved the proposed P3,570,000 budget, which was sourced from the personnel services savings last year. The ordinance was sponsored by Councilor Vicentito M. Lazo, chair of the council’s finance committee, and was approved during the council’s outreach session in Barangay Lagui-Sail on January 4.
The approval was formally announced by Laoag City Mayor Michael V. Fariñas during City Hall’s flag-raising ceremony on January 9 as he mentioned that the additional cash gift would be distributed immediately.
The additional cash gift was recommended by Fariñas after he learned of the savings by the city government.
