DILG XI bares 2018 LTIA Regional Evaluation Result

“Thanks to the efforts of the barangay dispute mediator councils all over the region or the Lupong Tagapamayapa, the government continues to save thousands in adjudication costs.” (Adjudication is the legal process by which a judge reviews the evidence and arguments presented by opposing parties.)

This was the statement of the DILG Regional Director Alex C. Roldan, CESO V, when he disclosed the result of the Lupong Tagapamayapa Incentives Awards (LTIA) regional evaluation conducted on April 8, 2019 at the DILG XI LGRRC Conference Room, Matina, Davao City.

“I consider that peaceful and conflict-free homes, neighborhood and communities are needed so that there will be development and progress in any area. In a peaceful environment, all good things are possible, whereas in the absence of peace, we cannot achieve anything of a positive nature, either as individuals, or as a community”, RD Roldan said.

With this, he emphasized the essential roles of lupons in every barangay.

In the category of Highly Urbanized Cities, Barangay Cabantian, Buhangin District of Davao City emerged as the Outstanding Lupong Tagapamayapa for this year.
