Why Surigao town looks up to Las Piñas

The local governments of Lingig, Surigao del Sur and Las Piñas City will jointly identify opportunities for improvement in the delivery of services to their respective constituents.

Lingig Mayor Elmer Evangelio and his fellow town officials have extended their gratitude to their Las Piñas counterparts for hosting them, thereby giving them insights on how the progressive city is being governed.

Mayor Imelda Aguilar and her daughter Vice-Mayor April Aguilar presided over the governance benchmarking at The Excelsior Hotel recently.

The Aguilars expounded on the four Ks, namely Kalusugan, Kalinisan, Kaayusan and Kaalaman (health, cleanliness, orderliness and knowledge).

For Kalusugan, the city government implemented the so-called “green card” program that takes care of residents’ hospitalization and other health matters like inoculation against diseases.

Las Piñas has been recognized by the Department of Health for surpassing the 96 percent target to vaccinate children with its 106 percent accomplishment.

Under the Kalinisan program, Las Piñas is implementing the clean and green program and the proper disposal of wastes.

Las Piñas gathered the Safe City Award on 9 August based on the outstanding performance of the local police that made the city with the least crime volume, the Aguilars noted on orderliness.

Mayor Aguilar revealed that the city police have also recorded the highest number of arrested crime suspects.

She said the police visibility is the “biggest” factor how the local police force has made the city a “safer” place to live in.
