Incoming Mankayan Mayor Frenzel Ayong is eyeing an increase in the municipal government’s assistance to the barangays and the police.
The Mountain Province politiko said the municipal government currently gives P20,000 to the barangays.
The Mankayan Municipal Police Station, meanwhile, receives P200,000 annually.
“We have to empower our barangays and the local police force who are partners in defining the growth and development of our beloved municipality,” Ayong said.
“We have to closely work with them so that can bring the government’s services closer to our constituents pursuant to our campaign motto,” he added.
