After 2 months of having no Joint sessions with any barangay, the Sangguniang Panlungsod of the City of Tagbilaran led by the City Vice Mayor Jose Antonio “Toto” S. Veloso, is bracing up for their 4th Joint Session for the year 2015, this time, with the Barangay of Cabawan.
It can be recalled that the Sangguniang Panlungsod conducted its last Joint session with Barangay Bool last March 2015. Joint sessions were postponed momentarily for the months of April and May because of the various activities undertaken by the Sangguniang Panlungsod. The whole SP had their Lakbay-Aral last April and last May, the whole City Government was busy for the Saulog Celebration.
As early as now, Punong Barangay Luis Coto of Barangay Cabawan is preparing for the upcoming Joint session. Punong Barangay Coto had been consulting VM Veloso and the SP office to ensure that the Joint session will be productive and successful.
Vice Mayor Toto Veloso is looking forward for the SP’s next joint session this coming June 26 with the Sangguniang Barangay of Cabawan. VM Toto acknowledges that Joint Sessions with the barangay is the most effective way that the Sangguniang Panlungsod can bring the government closer to the Tagbilaranons. He added that it is usually during joint sessions that the Sangguniang Barangay can openly voice out the problems that their respective barangays are facing and with both councils discussing the possible next steps, it would help expedite the resolution of problems.
