At least six barangays in Caloocan City have passed the Seal of Good Local Governance for Barangays, the city government said Wednesday.
The villages that now have the SGLGB seal are Barangays 67, 170, 176, 177, 178, and 182.
These are the barangays which have been inspected by the Caloocan City Validation Team, which includes the Department of the Interior and Local Government, Liga ng mga Barangay, Barangay Secretariat, and Rotary Club-Kalookan North.
To gain the SGLGB, a barangay must pass the three core areas: Peace and Order, Financial Administration and the Disaster Preparedness.
Delighted by this development, City Mayor Oscar Malapitan personally honored each of these barangays and their officials. He praised their teams for the kind of services they have rendered that deserve emulation by other barangay in the city.
“Surely, our services to the people of Caloocan will continue for the progress of the city. We hope the honor received by the six barangays will serve as an inspiration to other public servants in Caloocan,” the mayor said.
Previously, the Caloocan City government through the Environment and Management Department spearheaded the cleanup drive in the five barangays of the city the other day.
About 360 residents volunteered in the program dubbed “3rd Quarter Clean-Up Drive” in Barangays 14, 16, 18, 20, and 22.
The DILG and the Department of Environment and Natural Resources also joined the program.
The Clean-up Drive was spearheaded by the city government on orders of Mayor Malapitan, who was delighted by the people’s participation in cleaning the city’s environment.
The mayor hoped more will join the clean-up drive in the coming days.
