On February 28, Mayor Albee Benitez endorsed the request of the Human Resource Management Services to revise certain positions of the plantilla personnel as to position titles/salary grade.

Benitez’s request is for the city council to pass a resolution to correct the same, but the august body deemed it proper to pass an ordinance instead because the said positions were all adopted and passed through such legislative manner. (
