Angeles City council okays PHP1.7-B budget for 2017

ANGELES CITY, Pampanga, Jan. 3 (PNA) -- The 17th Sangguniang Panlungsod has approved this city’s budget for fiscal year 2017 amounting to PHP1,762,392,369.

“The Executive Budget is the fiscal translation of the city government’s initiative and programs for the year 2017. With this, the city will be able to meet the challenges of bringing our city to greater heights and further growth,” said Vice Mayor Bryan Matthew Nepomuceno on Tuesday.

The 2017 budget is 6 percent or PHP194 million higher than the previous year’s budget of PHP1.57 billion.

Based on the appropriation report from the City Budget Office, the budget for this year includes the increased salary rate of permanent and regular employees as mandated by Executive Order no. 201, signed by former President Benigno Aquino on February 19, 2016.

But the main bulk of the approved budget is concentrated on the delivery of basic public and social services.

The allocation also underscores the many recommended priority projects for the physical, environmental and community advancements of the city.

According to the members of the Local Finance Committee (LFC), 48 percent or PHP802 million of the total budget will be derived from the Internal Revenue Allotment (IRA), while the bulk of the budget will be coming from locally generated sources.

"We are elated to report that Angeles City is still independent from IRA. This means that our increased budget was attained through the city’s intensified revenue generation scheme, not only in the collection of business permits, fees and licenses but also from the improved assessment and collection of real property taxes,” said Mayor Edgardo Pamintuan.

Among the front line city government offices, the Ospital ning Angeles (ONA) garnered the biggest appropriation for the year with a whooping PHP142 million.

The appropriation will greatly sustain the new and existing health programs of the city as well as the improvement and the high-demand operation of the hospital and its services.

This will also facilitate the modernization of ONA as it applies for a Tertiary Level hospital accreditation from the Department of Health (DOH).

The City Engineer’s Office (CEO) came second with a total appropriation of PHP103 million, City Health Office (CHO) with PHP92 million, and the City College of Angeles (CCA) with PHP64 million.

Under the city government’s special programs, an amount of PHP140 million is allotted for the intensification of the local government’s Solid Waste Management Program.

A total appropriation of PHP160.5 million will be allotted under the 20 percent Development Fund which will aid the development of the city’s Cultural Center; Enhancement of the Global Information System (GIS); Physical Development; Improvement of the Pampang Market; and Watershed Development Projects among others.

"With this appropriation report, we can say that health and social services, infrastructure development, environmental sustainability and education are our priorities this year,” said Mayor Pamintuan.

“These allocations will help us accomplish all the programs and projects that our administration had promised under the Contract with the Angeleños,” he added. (PNA)
