It was Mayor Imelda Aguilar who announced the news.

To put things in perspective, posted below is the excerpt from the Manila Bulletin report.

Las Pinas City Mayor Imelda Aguilar announced that the city received the 2021 Seal of Good Financial Housekeeping (SGFH) from the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG).

Aguilar said the DILG recognized the city government’s efforts on sustained good practices in fiscal accountability and transparency in local governance.

Based on the recommendation of the DILG-Bureau of Local Government Supervision (DILG-BLGS), Las Pinas City was among the three cities given the DILG’s 2021 Seal of Good Financial Housekeeping . The other two cities are Makati and Muntinlupa.

The mayor said the recognition was certified and approved by the DILG-National Capital Region (NCR) on Nov. 5, 2021.
