Happy Mothers Day!

Happy Mothers Day!

Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: But a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised. Proverbs 31:30 KJV
HAPPY MOTHERS’ DAY!
A greeting from Governor Dr. Melchor Daguines Diclas

A two-storey school building will soon be erected at Puguis National High School in Longlong, Puguis, La Trinidad, Benguet.
Governor Dr. Melchor Daguines Diclas said the Provincial Government of Benguet allocated P6 million for the construction of the said school building to help decongest the number students learning in a classroom and to provide them a better facility conducive to learning.
 
Constancia Jane Abodiles, Puguis NHS school head, said one of their major concerns is overcrowded classrooms. She said they only have eight classrooms being used by 283 students who are currently enrolled at the school.
 
 
The new school building will have four classrooms which can accommodate at least 160 students.
Abodiles thanked the provincial government for considering the project as it will also help them with their application for the opening of Senior High School. She said they are planning to open Technical Vocational Livelihood (TVL) track to provide their students access to vocational courses.
The project broke ground on May 6, 2022 with 254 calendar days to complete. The ground breaking ceremony was graced by Board Member Nestor Fongwan Jr., employees of the Provincial LGU, PTA officers, and personnel of Puguis NHS.

BENGUET RANKS 7TH AMONG TOP REVENUE GENERATORS NATIONWIDE

BENGUET RANKS 7TH AMONG TOP REVENUE GENERATORS NATIONWIDE

The Bureau of Local Government Finance (BLGF) has awarded for the first time the Province of Benguet led by Governor Dr. Melchor Daguines Diclas for landing seventh in the top 10 local government units (LGUs) in terms of year-on-year growth rate for the FY 2019-2020 nationwide.

Based on BLGF’s data, the province noted a 12.00 percent increase with P407.15 million compared to the P363.50 million Local Sourced Revenue (LSR) in 2019.

Mary Lou Gamboa, LTOO IV at BLGF-CAR, said out of the provinces in the Cordillera region, only the Provincial Local Government of Benguet made it to the top 10. She also confirmed that this is the first time the Provincial Government of Benguet achieved an award for being a top LGU in terms of growth of locally sourced revenue such as real property and business taxes, fees and charges.


“Aside from the IRA (internal revenue allotment), malaki rin kasi ang kino-collect nila, like they can also depend on their collections,” Gamboa added.

Gamboa also acknowledged the Benguet Provincial Treasury Office headed by Ms. Imelda Macanes for their collective effort in achieving this milestone.

Gamboa, representing BLGF-CAR headed by Regional Director Florizelda A. Enriquez, handed the certificate of achievement to the Provincial LGU of Benguet at the Provincial Governor’s Office on May 5, 2022.

Governor Diclas expressed his gratitude to the Benguet constituents and to the Provincial Treasury Office as well as to all the offices concerned with the collection of fees and charges for their efforts in boosting the province’s revenue generation. | SAP Jr.
