MAYOR SIA0 FILE HB 7775 BILL CREATING NEW SIX BARANGAYS IN ILIGAN CITY

Former congressman Frederick W Siao Lone district of Iligan City who is now the mayor of this city awaits the lapsed approval of HB No. 7775 he filed  during the regular Session of the 18th Congress  an Act creating six barangays Acmac, Ditucalan, San Roque, Luinab, Upper Hinaplanon and Ubaldo Laya, all in the Iligan City. 

Siao told the Manila Times that under Section 3 of the Act, the plebescite conducted and supervised by the COMELEC pursuant to  Iligan City Ordinance No. 1821 dated November 18, 1988 for the  creation of Barangay Ditucalan 1934 dated February 5, 1991 for the  creation of Barangay Luinab, 1945 dated March 20, 1991 for the creation Barangay Hinaplanon, 1931, 1932 and 1946 all dated July 22, 1991 for the creation of Barangay San Roque and Barangay Ubaldo Laya  respectively, which ratified creation of said  Barangays as proclaimed by the plebecite  Board of Canvassers  shall serve as substantial compliance with the plebecite   requirenent under section  10 of Republic Act NO.  7160, otherwise  known as the Local Government Code of 1991, as amended, 

The lawmaker emphasize in his bill that with regards to the incumbent Barangays officials of Acmac , Ditucalan, San Roque,  Luinab, Upper Hinaplanon, and Ubaldo Laya shall continue to hold  office until such time that their successors have been duly  elected  and qualified.

As to public infrastructure and facilities, all existing public  infra and facilities for public use within the territorial  boundaries of the newly-created Barangays shall continue to be owned and administered by them.

Barangays Acmac, Ditucalan, San Roque, Luinab, Upper Hinaplanon, and Ubaldo Laya Acmac shall be entitled to Internal Revenue  Allotment (IRA) shares pursuant to Section 285 of Republic Act No.  7160 otherwise known as Local Government Code of 1991, as amended,  Siao added.

This is why I am in favor of the Barangay and SK Elections  being  held on May 8,2023 as has been suggested by newly – elected Quezon  City Rep Ralph Tulfo . I agree with his rationale and the few months of postponment from December  5, 2022 to May 8, 2023 is just enough time for the COMELEC to make needed  preparations, Siao said.

Iligan City is growing in population and the necessity of creating new barangay stems from population growth.
