THE chief executive of the nation’s capital, Mayor Isko Moreno signed an ordinance allocating over P92.8 million for the grant of Service Recognition Incentive (SRI) of P10,000 to each of the city’s 9,282 regular personnel, pursuant to Administrative Order No. 37 issued last Dec. 18 by Pres. Rodrigo Duterte.
According to Moreno, it is the local government’s little way of recognizing the efforts, support and dedication of the city personnel to the jobs assigned to them, thus ensuring the success of the programs that he and Vice Mayor Honey Lacuna as well as the other city officials have set forth.
The mayor acknowledged that no project of the city will be implemented properly without the hard work being put out by the employees themselves.
Moreno also lauded and thanked the Manila City Council, headed by Vice Mayor Honey Lacuna and majority floor leader Atty. Joel Chua, for the swift passage of the said ordinance that will redound to the benefit of the city’s rank-and-file employees. Said SRI will be released in January.
In granting the said incentive, Moreno cited the rationale behind the President’s order, thus: “government employees deserve to be rewarded for their collective and unceasing participation in and invaluable contribution to the Administration’s continuing efforts toward the establishment of streamlined government processes and more responsive delivery of public services, especially in the midst of the public health emergency caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.” ANDI GARCIA
