Dumaguete City Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo said the city’s proposed budget for 2020 is P920 million, a P130 million increase from this year’s appropriation.

The budget aims to significantly increase public spending in infrastructure, enhance the delivery of basic social services, and ensure the purchase of modern equipment, added Remollo.

The proposed budget is a P130 million increase from the P790 million appropriation this year.

Remollo credited the significant increase in next year’s budget to honest taxpayers and industrious tax collectors.

The need for the city employees and officials to work double time so that the taxes paid will be translated to more services and benefits for the citizens, according to him.

Under his administration, the city’s annual budget has grown significantly from P639 million in 2017 to P689 million in 2018.
