BSL to deliver SOCA on February 14

Mayor Benjamin S. Lim is set to deliver his State of the City Address (SOCA) on Monday, February 14, 2011 at the Dagupan City People's Astrodome, Tapuac Dist., Dagupan City. 

It was originally scheduled last February 7 but was deferred to February 14 as to allow the mayor to honor the invitation to witness the State of the Province Address (SOPA) of Governor Amado T. Espino Jr. The venue of the SOCA was also changed from Museo De Dagupan to the People’s Astrodome to accommodate the cross-section of the city populace who will attend the SOCA.

The SOCA is provided for under Section 455, (b), (1), (iii), of Republic Act 7160, otherwise known as the Local Government Code of 1991, which states that for efficient, effective and economical governance the purpose of which is the general welfare of the city and its inhabitants pursuant to Section 16 of this Code, the city mayor shall present the program of government and propose policies and projects for the consideration of the sangguniang panlungsod at the opening of its regular session every calendar year and as often as may be deemed necessary as the general welfare of the inhabitants and the needs of the city government may require.
