The City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council, chaired by Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo, deliberated and proposed the appropriation of P 20 million for the meals and other basic needs of the Locally Stranded Individuals, returning Overseas Filipino Workers and frontliners.

Since the imposition of Enhanced Community Quarantine and now the General Community Quarantine, the City Government has been spending for the daily packed meals of all frontliners, health care workers, personnel in the checkpoints, barangay tanods including Locally Stranded Individuals and OFWs who are admitted at the government isolation facilities.

Aside from meals, the City Government is also providing toiletries, sleeping quarters and other basic necessities of arriving LSIs and OFWs required to undergo quarantine.

The budget is estimated to fund the meals and other operating expenses from June until the month of September 2020 in preparation for the expected influx of LSIs and OFWs who are coming home.
