Friday, September 21, 2012
ORMOC CITY -- The good relationship between the executive and the legislative departments is a big factor for the success and development of the city and other local government units (LGUs).
Mayor Eric Codilla, in a press briefing, said: “We are proud to say that the mayor, vice mayor, and the city councilors have harmonious relationship. By having so, we can plan what projects to be implemented for the benefit of the Ormocanons.”
Codilla said all the members of the council together with the ex-officio are given specific committees to attend on.
“If there are proposals submitted to the executive department, we let the committee in-charge study on the matter. Because if I would do it on myself, it will take me about 10 hours to study for it,” Codilla added.
By doing so, officials of the City Government would be able to attend to several problems in just one day.
Codilla also said that a recommendation is being made to the City Council members if the proposal needs legislative action, adding the councilor in-charge would then defend said proposal to his colleagues.
The mayor also cited that though there are members of the council who are on the opposition side, they make their stands on all the agenda taken constructively, especially if they saw that it would be for the good of the people of Ormoc.
Likewise, Codilla said that Ormoc City during his term has not taken any loan from a government bank or financial institution in funding for the different projects his administration has implemented.
In his recent visit to Ormoc, Codilla said all the projects including their New City Hall, water project, and many others are locally funded. (Leyte Samar Daily Express)
