BAGUIO CITY – Only 43 out of the 128 barangays in the city submitted their profile as required under Resolution No. 240 series of 2017, according to a legislative monitoring report of the City Council Research Division.
Because of this, the division under local legislative staff officer V Protacio Tangalin Jr. suggested the reiteration of the measure and to require the rest of the barangays to prepare and submit their updated profiles to the City Planning and Development Office.
In the report submitted to Vice Mayor Edison Bilog recently, Local Legislative Staff Assistant III Nechel Occasion concluded that the resolution “was not fully complied with.”
The resolution authored by Bilog stressed the importance of having an updated profile of the 128 barangays which contains the barangays’ history, famous landmarks, tourist sports and other significant data about them.
Such profiles when readily available would be of great help to tourists, researchers and students.
“With complete information and updated profile, the city would be able to showcase its tourism assets, historical landmarks and other important features of each of the barangays of the city,” the resolution noted.
