Subsidy eyed for Sinulog contingents
After the cancellation of live and pre-recorded Sinulog ritual show, Cebu City Mayor Edgardo Labella is looking into giving a subsidy to the contingents to defray their expenses.
Labella said that he will meet with the local finance committee and the treasurer to discuss the matter.
“I’ll be holding a meeting with the local finance committee and the treasurer to find out if there is a way that we can provide financial support without violating certain COA (Commission on Audit) rules,” according to him. (https://bit.ly/3sjxwU9)
The mayor did not say how much the city will possibly give to the choreographers as he would still want to hear from them.
“On a personal note, I really want to give them. But, I have to see to it that we will not be violating COA rules, and if there’s a way that I would look for other sources, then I will do it,” he added.
