THE Iloilo City Gallery at ground floor of City Hall will be transferred to the historic Ker and Co. heritage building just behind it.
Mayor Jerry Treñas said the transfer will give way to urgent needs of the elderly who transact and avail themselves of services with the City Government.
“We will prioritize frontline services, particularly senior citizens so they will not find it difficult to go up to second floor where the Office of Senior Citizens Affairs (Osca) is located,” Treñas said.
Osca processes discount identification cards and booklets the beneficiaries can use to avail themselves of discounted privileges in groceries, food and medicines, among others.
The City Gallery, which houses plaques of awards, memorabilia and photo walls of Ilonggo festivals and cultural excellence, will be fitted at Ker building to complement the City Tourism and Development Office. (PR)
