KABANKALAN City Mayor Benjie Miranda ordered for the on-time release of the salaries of job order (JO) and regular employees of the city.

Miranda made the order after he observed that the release of the employees' salaries, including the Jos, have always been delayed for weeks.

With this, Miranda signed an Office Order urging all the offices under the City Government to hasten the processing of the documents by using routing slips to monitor the and track down the papers on process.

Miranda, in a statement, stressed that he wants the employees to enjoy their salaries by receiving them on time.

He said the City Government should adhere to the Anti-Red Tape Act or Republic Act 11032, declaring the policy of the state to promote integrity, accountability, proper management of public affairs and public property as well as to establish effective practices aimed at the prevention of graft and corruption in government.

Miranda also emphasized to its city employees to observe the Code of Conduct and Ethical Standards for public officials/servants.

Meanwhile, Miranda led the turnover of 11 Carabaos to the members of Indigenous People in the city over the weekend.

The program is under the 4K Program of the Department of Agriculture or the "Kabuhayan at Kaunlaran ng Kababayang Katutubo."

Miranda, a proud member of Indigenous People, said he is happy that the Indigenous Community received such program from the government because it is a big help for the livelihood of its members. (TDE)
