Pasig Mayor Vico Sotto has asked residents to cooperate as the local government starts its census after a year-long delay.

In an October 23 Facebook post, Sotto said the conduct of a census is required under Republic Act 11315 or the Community-Based Monitoring System (CBMS) Act.

The mayor said the census should have started in March 2020 but it was delayed due to the pandemic.

“Dinagdagan lang namin ng mga tanong na makakatulong sa pagpapatupad natin ng mga programa (katulad ng Universal Health Care),” he said.

Sotto said he’s hoping that residents will be kind to and cooperative with city government employees conducting the census.

“Boluntaryo lang naman ang pagsagot, pero mas mabuti nang mapabilang kayo para mas kumpleto ang datos na magagamit ng ating LGU sa paghain ng serbisyo,” he said.
