Awarding-Seal of Good Local Governance (SGLG) 2017
The Municipality of Victoria bags another SGLG award for the third time and joining Four hundred forty-eight (448) local government units (LGUs) all over the country have passed the test of good governance as they earned the much coveted Seal of Good Local Governance (SGLG) of the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) for this year.
Passers are conferred with a SGLG marker to be placed in their provincial, city, or municipal halls and a Performance Challenge Fund (PCF), an incentive in millions of pesos to be used for local development projects.
To qualify for the SGLG, LGUs must comply with the ‘4+1’ assessment criteria. LGUs ought to pass four core areas namely financial administration, disaster preparedness, social protection, and the new additional area peace and order.
They must also pass at least one essential area, either, business friendliness and competitiveness; tourism, culture and the arts; or environmental protection.
Thank you Mayor Marvin Silao, VM Jeni Guiam & SB Members, LGU Employees and to the People of Victoria.
