ANGELES CITY—Mayor Carmelo “Pogi” Lazatin Jr. on April 24, 2023, awarded certificates of loyalty, pins and cash incentives to some 182 employees for their decades-long service to the Angeleños.

“Kayo ang dahilan ng maayos at tapat na paghahatid natin ng serbisyo sa ating mga kababayan, mula noon hanggang ngayon,” Lazatin said.
“May your hard work serve as encouragement to your fellow employees in serving the Angeleños with commitment,” Lazatin added.
A P10,000 cash incentive was granted to those who have been in the service for 10 years, and P5,000 for every succeeding five years of tenure and service rendered by the awardees.
