Barangay officials who would want to transact business at the provincial government center in Koronadal City are now assured that they will not be left unattended.
Gov. Arthur Y. Pingoy Jr. recently ordered the creation of Barangay Affairs Unit under the Office of the Governor to receive and assist barangay officials who will come to the government center.
Joel Limpot, executive assistant to the governor, in a press conference yesterday said “Gov. Pingoy established the Barangay Affairs Unit to bring the provincial government closer to the barangays.”
Gov. Pingoy decided to create the unit after observing that barangay officials who come to the provincial government center to follow up their villages’ concerns are left on their own without any assistance, he said.
Village officials following up projects, programs and other requests with the provincial government can now go directly to the Barangay Affairs Unit because the office is given authority to assist them in their concerns.
“Coordination by the unit is not limited to the Office of the Governor because it is also authorized to link with other offices such as the Federation of Barangay Councils and other offices in the provincial government center,” he said.
“The governor would also like to make sure that government programs intended for the barangays will actually reach the intended communities . This will also ensure that residents in the barangays will know the development efforts of the provincial government,” he added.
“Also, problems and concerns in the barangays will be given immediate attention.”
Through the unit, the provincial government will also be regularly informed of the affairs and concerns in the barangays. (PIA 12)
