A resolution nominating Councilor Dindo Ramos as a member of the People’s Law Enforcement Board, was approved by the Bacolod Sangguniang Panlungsod Wednesday.
Authored by Councilor El Cid Familiaran, chairman of the SP Committee on Police and Security and Jail Management, the resolution said the Local Government Code of 1991, mandates every local government to establish a People’s Law Enforcement Board.
The same law, states that the PLEB will be composed of any member of the SP, any barangay captain, and three other members to be chosen by the City peace and Order Council from the community who are known for their probity and integrity, one of whom must be a woman, another a lawyer or college graduate, or the principal of elementary school, it said.
The resolution said that, based on the provision of the law, the term of office of the member of the member of the PLEB will be three years from assumption of office, but after his/her term expires, he or she will hold office until a successor will be chosen and qualified.
It said the City Peace and Order Council has already chosen its three representatives for the PLEB.
To complete the list of PLEB members, there is also a need for the SP to designate its representative to the Board, it added.
Meanwhile, the SP also approved a resolution commending and congratulating the MassKara dancers of Bacolod City for winning the grand championship of the inter-town edition of ABS-CBN’s It’s Showtime Entertainment Program.
The resolution was authored by Councilor Sonya Verdeflor, chairman of the SP Committee on Tourism and Local, International Cooperation.*CGS
