AS part of Quezon City Mayor Joy Belmonte’s commitment to bring the city government’s programs, projects and services closer to the people, action offices will be established in each of the city’s six legislative districts.
She recently signed Ordinance No. SP-3000, S-2021 or the Quezon City District Action Office Ordinance, creating six district action offices and 42 coterminous positions for their operation.
“Ito’y bahagi ng ating pangako at hangaring ilapit sa tao ang mga programa, serbisyo at mga proyekto ng lokal na pamahalaan,” she said.
“These district action offices will serve as the city hall’s extension where people can bring all of their concerns and grievances for proper and immediate action,” she added.
Apart from bringing the city government services closer to the public, the measure also mandates district action offices to provide immediate response to the needs and grievances of the residents.
They are also tasked to provide active, efficient and equitable government machinery at the lowest level, extend maximum service to the greater number of people and to engage the active participation of the private sector.
The district action offices are manned by coterminous action officers, who shall be appointed by the city mayor. DALISAY NOLASCO
