Mayor Benjamin Magalong wrote the city council on March 13, requesting for the hiring of one radiologic technologist for the CHSO on a casual employment status from March to December.

The CHSO needs the services of a radiologic technologist because of the daily volume of people needing to undergo x-ray examination as part of the requirement for their employment and for other purposes.
Radiologic technologists are one of the highly skilled personnel in demand in private and public institutions locally and overseas courtesy of their expertise in handling state-of-the-art x-ray equipment in laboratories. – PIO release
