More dialogues on merger of barangay pressed
by Maria Aprila W. Cruz

Consultation on the proposed merging of barangays in the city should start now, according to Councilor Michael Lawana.

In the proposed merger, the present 128 barangays will be trimmed to 44.

Lawana said the rationalization plan aims to harmonize the present setup with the mandate of the Local Government Code; enhance manageability and economy; fast track delivery of services to the barangays; and professionalize administration and governance of the barangays as well as present a permanent solution to the boundary disputes involving the barangays.”

Lawana said even if the proposed merger will not be implemented during the term of current barangay officials, there should be an intensified consultation regarding the issue. 

“We should begin disseminating information of barangays that will be merged so that the mindset of barangay officials and their constituents will also start to adjust,” Lawana said in a radio interview.

Lawana said  he understands the sentiments of Mayor Mauricio Domogan and other city officials supporting the merger as there are barangays that cannot stand on their own and do not meet the requirements of the LGC,  so the city has to start the consultation to gather inputs.

Aside from the merger, Lawana added the current officials of the Association of Barangay Councils are the conduct of capacity development programs. He will also look on how to enhance the financial and administrative stature of barangays.
