Pasil Mayor Malannag Jr. attributes 5 national awards to community involvement

Updated: Jan 6, 2023

Pasil, Kalinga – Involvement of the people in Pasil with the local government programs is seen as a great contributory factor in their success nationally for the year 2022.

Last year, the town garnered five national awards - Seal of Good Local Governance (SGLG) Award, Anti-Drug Abuse Council (ADAC) Performance Award, 9th place in the Innovation pillar of Cities and Municipalities Competitive Index (CMCI) ranking, 17th in the Government Efficiency, and 20th Most Improved Local Government Unit among all those under 5th to 6th class municipalities nationwide.

Achieving these awards, says Mayor Alfredo “Chao-ig” Malannag Jr., would not be possible without the mutual effort of the local government and the community.

“These awards are proof that by working together, great things can be achieved,” underscored the mayor on his social media page.

Malannag further said that setting aside personal interest and favoring the common good likewise counts.

Regional achievements of Pasil

Aside from earning spots in national awards, Pasil also bagged awards at the regional level particularly in agriculture and in treasury.

Cameron Bakidan from the town was adjudged as the 2nd Most Outstanding Woman in Cordillera while Victor Aglipay was named the 2022 Best Performing ATI-Trained LGU Trainer (Regular Program).

Meanwhile, EJ Farm in Balinciagao Norte got P150,000 as starting capital after it was accredited as Learning Site for Agriculture (LSA) for fruits, vegetables, and rice by the regional Agricultural Training Institute.

Moreover, Pasil garnered six achievements and two commendation certificates from the Bureau of Local Government Finance – Cordillera. One of these is the recognition for being the first LGU in the region to complete the submission of the treasury and budget office reports for the 2021 – 2nd Quarter.

The town bested all other 5th-class municipalities in CAR on the 2021 Collection Efficiency of Locally Sourced Revenues both under treasury and assessment services. When it comes to the municipalities combined, Pasil ranked 3rd in both services.

The town secured the same rank on the 2021 Year-On-Year Growth in Locally Sourced Revenues of all the municipalities in the region.

Commendation certificates were handed over to Grail I. Agabas, the Focal Person of Electronic Statement of Receipts and Expenditures (eSRE); and April Joy G. Asboc, the Acting Municipal Treasurer.

Mayor Malannag encouraged his constituents to “be inspired to sustain their performance and even soar higher this 2023.”
