The City Government will purchase 30, 000 bags of rice (at 10 kilos per bag) for distribution to the affected households as assistance during the COVID-19 pandemic.
In a special session called by Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo, the City Council approved today the appropriation of P 13.3 million taken from the city’s unappropriated surplus to fund the rice purchase.
This will be the 5th wave of rice subsidy given by the City Government to the 30, 000 households within its jurisdiction.
The Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan officials will help in the orderly distribution of rice to the recipient households once the government procurement process will be completed.
