Baliwag cops the Manila BAYani Award


The municipality of Baliwag under the leadership of Mayor Ferdie V. Estrella emerged as the topnotcher among other municipalities in the recently held National Environmental Compliance Audit (ECA) for Municipal Category. ECA is the tool used to assess the compliance of Local Government Units (LGUs) to pertinent environmental laws and ordinances.

Being the top performer on the said assessment, Baliwag was hailed as the 2018 Manila BAYani Top Performer. The awarding rite was held on August 6, 2019 at Mayor’s Boardroom, Municipal Hall, Baliwag, Bulacan with a cash prize of Php 1,000,000.00 which was awarded to the municipality by Regional Dir. Julie J. Daquioag, LG-MED Chief Lerrie S. Hernandez and FAD Chief Anita W. Adriano.

This award is another achievement for the municipality in terms of environmental protection yet not a reason to break-off its goal in pursuing an extra mile to deliver Serbisyong may Malasakit para sa Kalikasan. Kudos to Baliwag!
