Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo and Councilor Alan Cordova expressed optimism that with the cash incentives and support of the city government, more young athletes would be inspired to engage and excel in sports to give honor and pride to Dumaguete City.
Each athlete was given cash incentive corresponding to each medal won: Gold – P 1, 500; Silver – P 1, 200 and Bronze – P 1, 000.
Mayor Remollo told City Schools Division Supt. Evangel Luminarias and the athletes, some were accompanied with their parents and guardians that additional incentives will be given to those who won medals during the recently concluded Palarong Pambansa in Vigan, Ilocos Sur.
Remollo said that he will propose to the City Council a bigger amount per medal won that will include the coaches of the outstanding athletes.
