If the new City Council approves the 2022 Annual Budget, all Lapu-Lapu City Hall employees will see a pay raise.

Mayor Ahong Chan announced this during his first flag-raising ceremony at the start of his second term as local chief executive on July 4, 2022.

The salary increase for all City Hall employees, according to Chan, was included in the proposed P3 billion annual budget that was not approved by the previous council, which was dominated by the opposition bloc at the time. (

All the city councilors elected on May 9, 2022 are Chan supporters, including the presiding officer of the City Council, reelected Vice Mayor Celedonio “Celsi” Sitoy.

With this, the reelected mayor urged the City Council to approve the annual budget during their regular session this week.

The budget for the repair of facilities that were damaged during the onslaught of Typhoon Odette (Rai) is also included in it, he said.

The City currently uses the reenacted 2021 annual budget amounting to P2.7 billion.
