SAN JOSE, Camarines Sur (BicolToday.com/06-June-12) – The Local Government of San Jose received another “Plaque of Recognition” from the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) for passing the third round of assessment for the prestigious Seal of Good Housekeeping Award.

This is the second award of recognition given by DILG for San Jose, Camarines Sur. Few months ago, the LGU-San Jose was awarded the DILG prestigious “Seal of Good Housekeeping”.

DILG Secretary Robredo handed the plaque to Jonathan N. Ofalsa of San Jose, who represented Mayor Antonio B. Chavez, during the “Tapatan on Disaster Preparedness” program held at the DILG regional office in Legaspi City on Friday, June 1. The program was attended by LGU officials and executive staff.

San Jose Mayor Chavez, that time, was in Metro Manila on official business and was officially informed by DILG Regional office.

LGU-San Jose was one of three municipalities in Camarines Sur already awarded by the DILG “Seal of Good Housekeeping” for excellence in governance. The award goes to LGUs which have “best practices in planning, fiscal management, transparency and accountability, and valuing performance management.”

Mayor Chavez, in his first term in office, added this second DILG award as another feather in his cap. His administration was awarded recently by the Department of Local Government Finance as First among fourth-class municipalities in revenue-collection in the Bicol Region. [BicolToday.com]
