Last August 8, Lazatin met with businessman Dennis Uy, owner of Converge ICT Solutions Inc., and Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) personnel and discussed the project.

Uy agreed to support the program to help the students and teachers in the city.

The businessman said this is one way of giving back to the community where he started.

Lazatin meanwhile bared plans to install 14 machines that could recognize employees’ faces for timekeeping system.

He also cited the connectivity of all off-site offices to the city hall for the face recognition system and telephone lines.

“Third is Collection Efficiency, by installing a server for the Treasurer’s Office – Land Tax Division,” he said.
