In the City of Las Piñas, officials of the Municipality of Lingig (Surigao del Sur) led by their mayor Elmer Evangelio were hosted by the City Government. The result of the visit convinced Lingig to emulate Las Piñas City on governance, according to a Manila Standard news report.
To put things in perspective, posted below is an excerpt from the Manila Standard report. Some parts in boldface…
Local officials of Lingig town in Surigao del Sur have hinted they would emulate Las Piñas City as a role model for best practices in good governance.
Lingig Mayor Elmer Evangelio and other local officials of the town recently visited Las Piñas and were amazed with the hospitality afforded them by Mayor Imelda Aguilar and Vice Mayor April Aguilar.
During the benchmarking held at the Excelsior Hotel last Friday, Evangelio and his team were also impressed with the presentation made by the Las Pinas City government in demonstrating its successfully implemented practices making Las Piñas a progressive and safe place to live in.
During the event, the local government presented the city’s 4K Programs (Kalusugan, Kalinisan, Kaayusan and Kaalaman) being implemented under the Aguilar administration to deliver better services to the people.
Under the Kalusugan program, the city government enforces a green card program being distributed to residents for their medication and hospitalization; vaccination for children, and free cataract surgery.
With this program, the city was recognized by the Department of Health for its outstanding performance in surpassing the 96 percent target wherein the number of vaccinated children reached 106 percent.
The Kalinisan program, on the other hand, has the clean and green project and the proper disposal solid waste in order to maintain cleanliness in the city.
The local government also received the Safe City Award on August 9 based on the outstanding performance of the local police that made Las Pinas a city with the least crime volume.
Mayor Aguilar disclosed that the city’s police force also recorded the highest number of arrested suspects for committed crimes.
She said law enforcers made the city a “safer” place to live in Metro Manila because of the police visibility and the conduct of checkpoints in coordination with community leaders.
