Accomplishment Report 2011 FeaturedTuesday, 22 May 2012
Our Beloved People of Irosin:
The Performance Year 2011 has ended and we as public officials are duty bound to submit an accomplishment report in compliance to Section 97 of the Local Government Code of 1991 and in adherence to the principles of transparency and accountability in governance.
This accomplishment report highlights the results of various interventions of the local government unit in the five areas of development namely social development, economic development, environment and natural resources, infrastructure development and institutional development, as well as financial management and performance on local legislations.
The interventions we instituted are anchored on our shared vision, mission and goals for a Bag-ONG Irosin. On the onset of 2011, we have laid out three guideposts that gave direction in the delivery of basic public services and prioritization of result areas: the opening of opportunities through agriculture development and better health of the people, nurturing of the future through increased investment in education, and good governance. We made sure that our priority programs and projects would address the pressing needs of the people specially the under-privileged. These intentions were positively declared during the Comprehensive Multi-Sectoral Development Planning Workshop participated by key development stakeholders of the municipality.
