SLGR is a web-based, self-assessment process developed by the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) using the Local Performance Management System (LGPMS) tool in identifying capabilities and limitations of the LGU in the delivery of essential services.
Town Mayor Maria Luisa Romualdo cited this during her State of Municipality Address (SOMA) on Friday, July 5 at the Camiguin Convention Center.
She noted on efforts invested in the crafting of the tourism master plan, updating of the land use plan and environmental laws, as well as, the streamlining of frontline services for improved governance.
In the area of revenue generation, the municipality showed an increase of 4.3 percent, due the increase in number of investors from 1,221 in 2011 to 1,286 in 2012 and another 6 percent increase in real property tax generation.
For health services, the LGU reported an investment in the amount of P1.5 million for the maternal, child and health care program, which also translates to zero maternal deaths in 2012.
The Mambajao LGU likewise came up with a feedback system, now made available to every transacting client, to solicit their views and satisfaction level on services availed.
“Programs, projects, and activities in the name of ‘good governance’ were delivered because we have championed participatory governance,” she said.
Romualdo added that her administration’s thrust for a ‘Clean and Beautiful Mambajao’ will remain as the LGU’s loud battle cry, as a way of protecting the town from floods or calamities triggered by poor garbage or environmental management.
To date, the LGU has already owned three dump trucks and one garbage compactors to manage garbage collections and targets further to institutionalize the scheduled collection of biodegradable and non-biodegradable wastes. (JCV/PIA)
