Join deliberations on budget,
solon urges local civil society

Deputy House Speaker Lorenzo Tañada III urged local government units in Negros Oriental to institutionalize people’s participation in the preparation of budget process, a Philippine Information Agency press release said.

As  congressional representative, Tañada expressed support to the initiatives of Dauin, La Libertad and Sibulan in Negros Oriental  for allowing non-government organizations and people’s organization  to participate in the preparation of local budget deliberations.

This, he said, will  help to ensure transparency measure and good governance of the municipality’s budgetary process.

 Wale said she is happy to have the additional school building and that, when classes open next week, they will use it most likely, for Grade VI students.

Lake Balanan
to use green energy

An initial 25 units of solar lamps will be installed and will replace the existing ordinary lamp at the path walk.
