City working on reenacted budget pending ‘18 fund nod
by PIO release

The city government will temporarily operate on a re-enacted budget at the start of this year while the city council body deliberates on the proposed P2.059 billion budget for 2018.

The council was not able to approve the proposed budget during their last regular session on Dec. 18, 2017 due to various issues raised on the implementation of the local government’s priority programs and projects.

Each of the councilors wound up their committee hearings for the proposed budgets of the different departments assigned to them and the same budgets are now being deliberated en banc before final approval.

Under the Local Government Code, the council is given 90 days to approve the proposed budget for the calendar year. If it is not able to enact the appropriation ordinance during the previous year, it is barred from discussing any other item until the budget shall have been approved.

Mayor Mauricio G. Domogan remains optimistic that the city council will pass the city’s annual budget within the prescribed period so that priority development projects can be implemented on time.

If the proposed budget is not passed in such time, the mayor said the executive department will allocate the funds in the re-enacted budget, something he does not want to happen because he wants local officials to be involved in the identification of the city’s priority projects through the approved budget this year.

After its approval, the budget will be transmitted to the Department of Budget and Management for review. The agency also has 90 days to act on the same.

The DBM-CAR is mandated to render its observations on the approved budget of the local government, whether it will be operative or if it has to be  adjusted to align them with existing budget circulars and other issuances.

Domogan said the delayed enactment of the city’s annual budget will translate to delays in the bidding and implementation of priority projects this year.
