0 887

Pasay City ended 2018 on a high note as its efforts to fight illegal drugs have been recognized by the Department of Interior and Local Government.

Mayor Antonino Calixto received on the city government’s behalf last December the DILG’s “Ideal” Performance Award 2018 for the high functionality rating of its Anti-Drug Abuse Councils (ADAC).

Pasay was cited for “complementing the national government’s anti-illegal drug campaign and garnering a score between 85-99 functionality points during the conduct of the 2017 ADAC Performance Audit”.

The DILG gives the ADAC Performance Award to provincial, city or municipal Anti-Drug Abuse Councils that have “exceptionally performed” their duties and responsibilities in planning and implementing anti-illegal drug programs, projects and activities in their respective jurisdiction.

Pasay was one of the 11 LGUs in Metro Manila to win the award.
