The Bureau of Local Government Supervision (BLGS) of the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) announced that the Dipolog city government led by Mayor Evelyn T. Uy has successfully  complied with the “Seal of Good Housekeeping” (SGH) after it met the standards set by the  DILG for good governance.

The DILG said the city would receive more than P2 million from the Special Local Road Fund (SLRF) as its prize for being an SGH awardee. Said amount would be used to improve, maintain repair and/or rehabilitate the city’s road network.

DILG found that the city leadership has been strictly implementing the Full Disclosure Program (FDP), has adopted appropriate strategies in executing its projects, programs and services, and  got no adverse findings from the Commission on Audit (COA) in its utilization of funds. Local legislations, development plans, fund sourcing, transparency, financial accountability and other best practices of the city government were also being considered by SGH evaluators. — PIA
