THE City of Sagay and the Municipality of Binalbagan were hailed as Best Performing City and Municipality in Negros Occidental, respectively, by the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) Provincial Office headed by Director Ma. Joy Maredith Madayag.

The governor congratulated the awardees and encouraged local officials in the province to work together for the good of their constituents.
