Board Member Roseller Pineda has proposed an ordinance granting a P2,000 monthly honorarium to all municipal federation presidents representing Persons With Disability (PWD).
Pineda said the monthly honorarium will be given quarterly to federation presidents provided they have submitted their quarterly reports.
“May mga ginagawa rin ‘yan sila [sa community], kaya kahit papaano sa maliit na halaga, alam natin na makakatulong ‘yan sa kanila kasi may pangangailangan din naman’ yan sila,” Pineda told Palawan News.
Pineda said the proposed ordinance is in accordance with a resolution passed by the MIMAROPA Regional Development Council (RDC).
Under the draft ordinance, the rules and regulations for its implementation will be formulated by the Municipal Social Welfare and Development Office (MSWDO) and Municipal Persons With Disability Affairs Office (MPDAO).
He also said the honorarium may still be increased.
“May chance naman na taasan ‘yan basta maganda ang pagkakaorganize ng grupo nila. Syempre, kinoconsider din natin ang nga ganyan pero sa ngayon ito muna,” Pineda said.
