MAJOR ACCOMPLISHMENTS AS A CITY VICE MAYOR

1. THE CODE OF ORDINANCE OF GENERAL SANTOS CITY

The Sangguniang Panlungsod recently enacted the Code of Ordinances of the City of General Santos, which is now on its way to be published accordingly. It was the first in Region 12 and done without any budget allocation “zero budget”. Under her leadership, the stand for good governance and equitable service to the people always serves as her main advocacy. Background of the Codification of Ordinances Project: For the past 64 years (1948-2012), numerous ordinances have been enacted by the honorable members of the past and present Sangguniang Panlungsod of General Santos City to govern the more than 500,000 Generals. However, as time goes by, most of these ordinances have become obsoleteunmodified and unsystematic.  Others are duplicative and conflicting with one another. And most of these ordinances remain inaccessible to the public even with the current computer technologies. Hopefully, when the aforementioned draft passes the 3rd and Final Reading in the plenary session, then, the City of General Santos will come to behold, for the very first time ever, a duly enacted General Santos City Code of Ordinances. With its enactment into local law, this significant milestone of legislation will become the 16th and 17th Sangguniang Panlungsod’s main legacy to the city’s history and development.
