SOUTHERN LEYTE- All public funds received have been duly accounted for.
This was the central message conveyed as the provincial government here sent a Fund Utilization Report to the city government of Davao.
The report, marked received by the city accountant office of Davao July 9, 2018, covered the P 3 million cash assistance donated to the province in the aftermath of typhoon Yolanda in November, 2013.
“As seen in the report, the total amount disbursed is P 2,992,678.68. Also enclosed is a check amounting to P 7,321.32 representing the balance thereof,” wrote Gov. Christopherson Yap to Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte Carpio in a letter dated July 5, 2018, a copy of which was obtained by PIA.
An official receipt was given to the returned, unspent money.
As gleaned in the report, the disbursed amounts were given to all the 18 municipalities and one city in an almost equal amount of P 100,000.00 per LGU, in order to aid constituents with partially damaged houses,
Other amounts were used to purchase medicines for disaster victims, and still others were given to individuals whose houses were totally damaged.
“We would once again take this opportunity to thank the City Government of Davao for your generous gift. It has helped many of our constituents who were victims of the typhoon,” Gov. Yap said in his letter. (PIA8-Southern Leyte)
