TAGUM CITY, Davao del Norte, Jan. 6 — The employees of the city government here have been advised to exert maximum effort to usher a new phase of development, thereby making 2015 a banner year for the city.

The instruction was delivered by Mayor Allan Rellon during Monday’s convocation and blessing of the new heavy equipment purchased by the local government.

Rellon described 2015 as a year for the implementation of massive infrastructure projects in the city and it is also the time for the local government to work hand-in- hand with the provincial government of Davao del Norte for the hosting of the 2015 Palarong Pambansa that is scheduled in May 2015.

Rellon said that the six units of equipment, all worth PhP16,192,500, are expected to boost the city government’s infrastructure projects.

The units include a skid loader truck, pay loader, 12,000-liter capacity tanker, eight-wheel backhoe and a dump truck. The local government also purchased one fire truck to be used by the City Disaster Reduction and Management Office.

On the first working day for 2015, the city government launched the "5S Program" which is a workplace organization method that uses a list of five Japanese words: seiri (sort), seiton (systemize), seiso (sweep), seiketsu (sanitize), and shikutse (self-discipline).

The "5S Program" is expected to achieve higher standards of workplace organization and discipline in order to make work easier, faster, cheaper, safer and more effective towards promoting a positive attitude among workers which will cultivate an environment of efficiency, effectiveness and economy.

“As we face 2015, let us be positive and be pro-active. Let’s work together amidst the challenges. Let us pray to God that He will pour more blessings to Tagum,” Rellon said. (PNA)
