After the Iloilo City government earlier revealed plans to construct condominium housing for city employees, Iloilo City Urban Poor Affairs Office head Roy Firmeza said eligible beneficiaries will be Salary Grade 10 employees and below, which he characterized as “consideration of the low-income earners.”
According to Executive Order No. 201, signed in 2016 by then-President Benigno S. Aquino III, which modified salaries for civilian government personnel, a Salary Grade 10 ranges from 17,730 to 20,387.
He explained, applicants should prepare documents showing they have served the city for at least five years.
Last month, Iloilo City Mayor Jerry P. Treñas said a 120-unit development will be built this year in the Jaro district’s Barangay San Isidro.
Initial estimates for the development are projected to be P88 million.
“We have the property and we also have the funds,” the mayor stated.
Construction is expected to begin in the second quarter.
In addition, Treñas earlier said a similar project is being planned for informal settlers, which will likely be built in Barangay Sambag, also in the Jaro district./WDJ
