The Davao City Council has clarified that the ordinance granting financial assistance to all qualified senior citizens of the city has not yet been approved.
Committee on Social Services chairman Wilberto Al-ag said that the proposed ordinance was still subject of deliberation.
“Further, let it be clarified that while it may be true that the ordinance proposes that the releasing of the assistance will be every second week of November, the year as to when it will commence cannot yet be determined as the ordinance has not yet been approved,” he said.
After the approval by the City Council, the proposed ordinance will be confirmed by the City Mayor and the corresponding budget will be appropriated, Al-ag explained.
He said when all of those are completed, the City Council will inform all the stakeholders and the agencies concerned
