BONTOC, Mountain Province – Five barangays of this municipality were recognized by the municipal government for early submission of their 2021 budget. 

Barangays Dalican, Tocucan, Bontoc Ili, Gonogon, and Alab Proper received certificates of recognition as Best Performing Barangays during the Municipal Peace and Order Council (MPOC) meeting last Oct. 21 in Barangay Talubin. 

The punong barangays of the recognized villages are Reynald Waking, Sr., Wilbert Padngaran, Paula Pangesfan, Rudy Gittabao, and Hye Bellang. 

This is the second time the LGU through the Municipal Budget Office recognized the first five barangays that submitted their annual budgets for the ensuing fiscal year to the sangguniang bayan not later than Oct. 16 of the current fiscal year.

Barangays Dalican and Tocucan received the certificates of recognition for the second time.  

Municipal Budget Officer Aida Lingbanan said for this year, most barangays have submitted their 2021 budgets before the set deadline for review and approval of the sangguniang bayan. 

Lingban said early preparation and submission of the 2021 barangay budget and SK budget for review and declaring it operative by the sangguniang bayan has a great impact in the implementation of barangay programs, projects, and activities.  

She added early submission of budgets means earlier implementation and delivery of services to the constituents. – Alpine L. Killa
