Honorarium for SK members, pushed

BAGUIO CITY – The local legislature approved on first reading a proposed ordinance authorizing barangays to extend cash benefits in the form of honorarium to Sanggunina Kabataan (SK) members (secretary, treasurer and kagawads) in the amount of P500 every month and making it a policy of the city government to do so.

Co-authored by Vice Mayor Edison Bilog and councilor Levy Lloyd Orcales, the measure cites Republic Act No. 10742 that expresses recognition of the State to the vital role of the youth in nation-building and promotes and protects their physical, moral, spiritual, intellectual and social well-being, inculcates in them patriotism, nationalism and other desirable values, and encourages their involvement in public and civic affairs.

The State shall "establish adequate, effective, responsive and enabling mechanisms and support systems that will ensure the meaningful participation of the youth in local governance and nation-building."

The ordinance reveals that RA 10742 provides that only the SK chairperson shall be entitled to a pro-rata honoraria for every session of the Sangguniang Barangay he or she has attended while other SK members like the secretary, treasurer and kagawads do not receive any honoraria for the services they render.

It states that an SK member shall only be entitled to the honorarium if he or she has attended the scheduled monthly meeting of the SK as provided by the RA with the SK chairperson issuing the necessary certification of attendance supported by the approved minutes of meeting.

The proposed measure tasks the august body's committee on youth welfare and sports development to prepare its implementing rules and regulations to be submitted to the City Mayor and city council for their perusal. The local finance committee shall issue the certification of availability of funds for the purpose.-gaby keith
