Dads act on benefits of former city employees

THE 19th City Council on its regular session Monday presided over by Vice Mayor Raineir Joaquin V. Uy enacted ordinances allocating P1 million from the city’s Salamat Paalam-Retirement Gift/Incentive budget to former employees of the city government who have retired from the service.

Under the Program on Awards and Incentives for Service Excellence (Praise Program), employees are entitled to receive P1,000 for every year of service.

Another ordinance was enacted appropriating an amount for the payment of terminal leave benefits of another employee who retired from the service last December 22, 2021.

The legislations were reviewed and endorsed by the committees on finance, budget and appropriations and on laws and rules respectively chaired by Councilors Edna M. Dahino and Ian Mark Q. Nacaya.
