The 20th Quezon City Council was conferred the Award of Excellence as the national winner of the Local Legislative Award of the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG). This is the second time that the City Council was given this outstanding honor, while also having attained regional-level awards.
Quezon City recently received recognition for having the best Peace and Order Council (POC) in the National Capital Region (NCR) following the results of the Local Peace and Order Council Performance Audit for 2018 conducted by the Department of Interior and Local Government.
The Quezon City Government, under Mayor Herbert M. Bautista, ends 2018 with multiple awards and other forms of recognition. The mayor considers these as continuing challenges, because the benchmarks are raised each year and the competition is more stringent. But the end goals are policies and programs that are more responsive to Quezon City’s evolving needs, from security and safety, to basic social needs.
The Quezon City Government gave recognition to 14 individuals and 9 institutions that made significant contributions to the city and the nation at the GAWAD PARANGAL AWARDS held at the Crowne Plaza in Ortigas on October 12, 2018.
More than 50 barangays received various awards for best practices and for their achievements in governance at the grassroots level during the 4th Barangay Seal of Good Housekeeping Award held at Novotel on October 3, 2018.
