The City Development Council chaired by Mayor Beng Climaco approved on Thursday the city government’s 2014-2016 Local Development Investment Program (LDIP) and the 2014 Annual Investment Program (AIP).

Engr. Rodrigo Sicat, city planning and development coordinator, said the LDIP is the basic document that translates the Local Development Plan (LDP) into programs, projects and activities.

“It contains a multi-layer listing of programs, projects and activities with cost estimates and sources of funds to be used to implement the LDP,” he said of the LDIP

For 2014, the LDIP includes funds for general public services amounting to more of less P640 million, social services costing PP806.7 million, economic services in the amount of P868.9 million and other services worth P903.2 million for a total of P3.2 billion.

In 2015 and 2016, the LDIP will have a total appropriations of P2.9 billion and P2.7 billion, respectively.

The 2014 AIP, on the other hand, is a tool by which the city government administers and translates the LDIP.

It carries a total appropriation of P3.2 billion for general public services, social services, economic services and other services.

Both the LDIP and AIP will have yet to be forwarded to the Sangguniang Panlungsod for the august body’s information and appropriate action.— Vic Larato
