Councilors restore P4 million assistance for Panagbenga
by PIO release

The city council restored the P4 million assistance of the city government to the Baguio Flower Festival Foundation, Inc. (BFFFI) for the conduct of Panagbenga.

The approved financial assistance is lodged with the budget of the City Mayor’s Office and will be used for the prizes of the winners of the various activities lined up for the 2018 Flower Festival.

Councilor Elmer O. Datuin, chair of the city council committee on tourism, special events, parks and playgrounds and newly installed chair of the Panagbenga executive committee, said that the fund should remain as part of the city’s annual budget to augment funds generated from the various income-generating activities and sponsors to pay for the prizes, subsidies and other expenses to be incurred during the conduct of the festival.

He added the execom agreed in principle to increase the cash prizes for the winners of the grand street dancing and grand float parades, and the subsidies provided to participants to the major crowd-drawing events to entice more schools to participate.

He said that the P4M counterpart of the city will remain while the execom will exert efforts to generate more funds from income-generating activities to cover the programmed expenses to sustain the staging of the events.

He said the P4M financial assistance disbursed by the city government to the winners of the events  is pursuant to existing accounting and auditing rules and regulations.

He said the exe-com is setting its sights on the income to be derived from the bidding of the Baguio Blooms Exposition at the Burnham Lake Drive, the Session Road in Bloom, and from potential sponsors that committed their support to the annual festivities.

Datuin assured his colleagues that the committee will be transparent in the declaration of income derived from income-generating activities of the festival.

He asked the public to trust the execom  because they will be working for the greater interest of the people.

For more than a decade now, the BFFFI was in charge of handling the major crowd drawing events of the festival with the city government providing assistance.
