The Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) recently awarded the municipality of Los Baños a seal of good housekeeping, embodying efficient and effective governance by local government officials. The seal was presented by newly-appointed DILG Local Government Operations Officer, Olivo Esquivel, to Mayor Hon. Anthony Genuino on January 30.
As of now, Los Baños is considered a first class municipality. The local government aims to bring the town further up to be one of the top municipalities in the country. “Kaya nga bilang staff ng DILG, talagang nagsusumikap kami (That’s why, as a member of the staff, we really try our best),” said Julieta DV. Jimenez, a DILG employee.
