CAMIGUIN (PIA)–Catarman, Guinsiliban, Mahinog, Mambajao, and Sagay towns presented their draft devolution transition plans (DTPs) focusing on sectors, functions, and services needing support/assistance from the provincial government, October 29 at the Camiguin Convention Center.
During the Interfacing Activities of the Municipal Devolution Transition Committee and Provincial Devolution Transition Committee, Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) Camiguin Provincial Director Rhona Pedraza-Abadilla said, “The bayanihan spirit applies here since all levels of local government – barangays, municipalities, and the province need to work hand-in-hand in preparation for the full devolution of functions and services.”
Following the presentation of the draft DTPs, the provincial government responds to the call for support of the municipalities.
A commitment signing was then performed as a symbol of agreement between the municipal and provincial officials to implement the interventions necessary to achieve a smooth and meaningful transition towards full devolution of certain functions and services.
The activity is conducted in preparation for the full devolution of basic services and facilities in accordance with Executive Order No. 138 s. 2021.
All municipalities are expected to submit and upload their approved DTPs to the DILG-DTP Online Repository Platform on or before November 12. (DILG-Camiguin/PIA-10/Camiguin)
