PB okays P94.7-M aid to 6 municipalities

THE Pampanga Provincial Board (PB) led by Vice-Governor Lilia “Nanay” Pineda approved Monday, September 16, a P94.7-million supplemental budget to fund priority and flagship projects of six municipalities.

Third District Board Member Rosve Henson said the PB gave Candaba P31 million; Lubao, P26.29 million; San Simon, P15.67 million; Sta. Rita, P14.4 million; San Luis, P5.94 million; and Masantol was given P1.40 million.

During the regular session, the PB also tackled a resolution giving authority to Governor Dennis Pineda to negotiate with the officers and employees regarding the collective negotiation agreement (CAN).

According to Henson, the resolution stipulates the benefits of the employees, tenure, and the duties and obligations of both parties – provincial government and employees.

They also discussed their request to the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) to construct additional footbridges or overpass on busy sections of national highways in the province. (PR)
