Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo shares the city’s accomplishments and priority projects to the 165 recipients of the Special Program for the Employment of Students (SPES) who gathered at his residence for their completion rites, recently.

Public Employment Service Office Manager Ma. Socorro Mira said that SPES is an annual summer program of the Department of Labor and Employment and the Local Government Unit of Dumaguete provides work for college students to earn compensation that could be used to pay for their enrollment.

Mayor Remollo said that next year the budget for the program will be increased to accommodate more recipients. Also present during the closing rites is Assistant City Administrator and Human Resource Management Officer Dr. Dinno T. Depositario.
