ENRO looking for cleanest,
greenest Dumaguete brgys

Environment and Natural Resources Officer Rosel Garcia ordered recently all barangay officials to remove eyesores in their barangays, to include unsightly posters, graffiti, abandoned junks, stockpiles, garbage and litters along the road, public and private places, as they vie for the cleanest and greenest barangays of Dumaguete City.

The project was launched January 20 in the presence of the city's barangay captains and kagawads, and graced by Councilor Manny Arbon, chairman of the Sangguniang Panlungsod Committee on Environment.

Required under the support system is a functional Barangay Environment and Natural Resources Council to formulate and prepare policies regarding the implementation of environmental programs and projects, among others. .
