Angeles City Mayor Pamintuan hails Brgy. Pandan chief for DILG award
Mayor Edgardo Pamintuan of Angeles City, Pampanga hailed early this week the chief of Barangay Pandan after receiving a citation from the Department of Interior and Local Government.
Barangay Pandan, one of Angeles City’s 33 barangays, was conferred with the 2018 Lupong Tagapamayapa Incentives Award (LTIA) by the DILG-Region III, under the Highly Urbanized Cities Category, for its efficiency in conciliation and arbitration operations, and effectiveness in securing amicable settlement of interpersonal disputes in the barangay.
Pamintuan lauded Barangay Captain Jeremias Alejandrino for “assuring an organized and proactive barangay justice system,” the city government said in a statement.
“We acknowledge the efforts exerted by our barangay officials in ensuring a safe and harmonious community for their constituents. These efforts have paid off for Barangay Pandan as this (award) manifests their hard work as front-liners of government services,” Pamintuan said.
The plaque of recognition and P50,000-cash incentive was turned over by DILG Regional Director Dr. Julie Daquioag to Alejandrino.
The event was witnessed by Angeles City Vice Mayor Bryan Matthew Nepomuceno and other city and barangay officials.
DILG City Director Martin Pores Moral explained that Republic Act 7160 or the Katarungang Pambarangay Law provided for the creation of the Lupong Tagapamayapa.
The law states that the barangays, being the basic political unit, have the mandate and the power to mediate and arbitrate disagreements before disputes are elevated to the courts.
The DILG conceptualized the LTIA system, based on the said law.(END)
