Four cities in Negros Occidental province are recipients of the 2019 Seal of Good Local Governance (SGLG) Award given by Department of the Interior and Local Government.

They are Bacolod City, San Carlos City, Silay City, and Victorias City.

The other SGLG recipient city in Western Visayas is Passi in Iloilo province.

“Congratulations to all Region 6 awardees. We recognize your efforts in practicing good governance and providing better public service,” the DILG-6 posted on Facebook.

Only 57 out of 145 cities across the country have been presented with the SGLG Award this year.

The criteria have seven governance core areas – financial administration; disaster preparedness; social protection; peace and order; business-friendliness and competitiveness; environmental protection; and tourism, culture, and the arts.
