A measure was initiated Tuesday at the provincial board to grant a P700 monthly cash incentive to all barangay secretaries in the province.
Board Member Eduardo Modesto Rodriguez, who is spearheading the proposal, urged the chamber to approve a resolution that will allow the province’s 433 barangays to adopt the measure.
He noted that barangay secretaries only receive somewhere between P1,000 to P2,000 in the form of honoraria every month.
He pointed out that barangay secretaries have many obligations and perform numerous tasks just to ensure a service-oriented government workforce and that many of them are facing financial difficulties.
If the measure is approved, Rodriguez said they will need to put up some P3.6 million to fund the incentive.
The proposal has been referred to the committee on appropriation for deliberation and study.
