LAMUT, Ifugao – Representatives from some government agencies in the province participated in the 2023 first semester barangay assembly of three barangays in the municipality of Tinoc.

Personnel of the Department of the Interior and Local Government, Philippine Information Agency, 54th Infantry Battalion, Philippine National Police, Bureau of Fire Protection, and provincial and the municipal local government units presented their programs and services to hundreds of villagers of Luhong, Gumhang and Binablayan.

These barangays   are recipients of the Support to Barangay Development Program projects under the National Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict.

 DILG Sec. Benhur Abalos, Jr., in a message conveyed by a representative, lauded the barangay LGUs for their continuous support to all the programs of the national government as he encouraged the community to join in the fight against illegal drugs.  

Under the Local Government Code, barangays are required to hold a barangay assembly every semester to keep their constituents abreast in the undertakings of the barangay government, especially on its spending. Through the assembly, residents are also given a venue to air their concerns and problems in their community.

The theme of the 2023 first semester barangay assembly is “B-BIDA KA! Barangay BIDA, Kasama Ka sa Pagpapatupad ng Kapayapaan, Pangangalaga ng Kalikasan at Pagpapaigting ng Pagkakaisa tungo sa isang Ligtas, Mapayapa, Maunlad at Masaganang Pamayanan.” – Marcelo B. Lihgawon
