Mayor Pryde Henry Teves was invited to speak on good governance during the Conversation with Local Chief Executives in Iloilo City. Inspired by Mayor Teves, Municipality of Murcia Negros Occidental led by Mayor Victor Gerardo Rojas visited Bayawan last October 28 to personally see and learn the best practices of Bayawan.
Together with Mayor Rojas were his councilors, department heads, and representative of Congressman of 3rd district of the province of Negros Occidental.
The Solid Waste Management or the Sanitary landfill was their priority during the visit in Bayawan for they are planning to replicate Bayawan Sanitary landfill.
Mayor Rojas also praised the cleanliness of the public market, the Local Early Flood Early Warning System and CCTV Command Center. More focused group is expected to come back because they will also replicate other best practices of Bayawan City.
Murcia officials were really happy in visiting Bayawan and Mayor Rojas even encouraged other government leaders to also visit Bayawan.
This just means that because of the exceptional leadership of Mayor Pryde Henry Teves, numerous LGUs not only in the province but across the country continue to visit Bayawan to personally learn its best practices.
