DILG awards 9 LGUs in Negros Occ.

Nine (9) cities and municipalities of Negros Occidental were awarded by the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) the Seal of Good Governance Award at the ceremony yesterday afternoon in Pasay City.

Awardee LGUs are the Cities of San Carlos, Silay, Sagay and Bago City; and the municipalities of Don Salvador Benedicto, Valladolid, Pontevedra, Candoni and Hinobaan.

This is not the first time the LGUs in Negros Occidental received the said award because since 2012 Negros municipalities always received such recognition. But this is the most number of awardees recognized by DILG in terms of good governance.

With the local chief executives who received the awards was Dr. Marlin Sanogal, Provincial Planning and Development Officer (PPDO) of Negros Occidental.*
