Daet Councilor King lectures village chiefs on cleanliness


Who needs costly beautification projects when one can simply observe cleanliness in the Barangay?

This was the gist of Daet, Camarines Norte Councilor Rosa Mia King’s message to Barangay captains during the recent launching of the 2017 Gawad Kalikasan and Bahay at Barangay sa Kalinisan programs.

The lady politiko just happens to be the Municipal Council’s Committee on Health and Sanitation chairperson.

According to a Brigada News FM Daet report Monday (June 12), King underscored to the village captains the importance of properly observing Republic Act (RA) 9003 or the Solid Waste Management Act.

King gave this statement amid complaints from the Municipal Environment and Natural Resources Office (MENRO) that Barangay officials haven’t been following waste segregation and disposal rules.

The councilor, who is a registered nurse, reckoned that illnesses can be avoided if the surroundings are kept clean. #
