The Angeles City Government gets the Seal of Good Local Governance (SGLG) conferred by the Department of the Interior and Local Government for the first time under the leadership of Mayor Carmelo ‘Pogi’ Lazatin Jr.
The Seal of Good Local Governance (SGLG) is an award, incentive, honor and recognition-based program for all LGUs and is a continuing commitment for LGUs to continually progress and improve their performance.
According to Mayor Lazatin, the SGLG is the most challenging iteration of the performance measurements from DILG.
“Ang SGLG po ang tinuturing na pinaka-importante sa lahat mga awards na binibigay ng DILG, kaya ang makuha ang award na ito ay patunay lamang po na ang lokal na gobyerno po natin ay para sa mga Angeleños,” Lazatin said.
The last time that Angeles City achieved this feat was in 2016.
The criteria for the SGLG are Good Fiscal or Financial Administration or Financial Sustainability; Disaster Preparedness; Social Protection and Sensitivity Program; Health Compliance and Responsiveness; Programs for Sustainable Education; Business Friendliness and Competitiveness; Safety, Peace and Order; Environmental Management; Tourism, Heritage Development, Culture and Arts; and Youth Development.
