Punctuality of brgy employees
in city BOSS monitored – exec

Executive assistant Samuel Montoyo Sr. said he will strictly monitor the attendance and punctuality of the 61 barangays in the city’s Business One-Stop-Shop (BOSS) in Bacolod.

Montoyo, Anti-Red Tape Act Core Team member, said all the 61 barangays in Bacolod City are participating in the BOSS at the Bacolod Government Center that was extended until February 28, from the original January 3 to 20.

But he will monitor the punctuality and attendance of representatives from the barangays because they have received several complaints from taxpayers that some of the personnel are not usually present in the tables they have been provided at the BGC, he said.
