ILOILO City’s beautification program has received reinforcement this November with the augmentation of 345 workers for a month-and-a-half duty period to help maintain cleanliness of the metropolis.
Mayor Jerry Treñas said the initiative has been made possible with remaining congressional funds he allotted during his term under the Department of Labor and Employment (Dole) and implemented recently.
“It is also good that this undertaking will be of big help to our beneficiaries in time for Christmas. They are working at P365 minimum wage for 45 days with total budget of P5.6 million,” he added.
The recipients are assigned to support beautification and greening efforts, cleanup of streets and markets under General Services Office, and plazas and esplanades under City Environment and Natural Resources Office (Cenro). (PR)
