All these inspire all of us to reach the vision we set to reach; thus, the year 2011 is marked with numerous remarkable accomplishments which elevated the town to a higher status in terms of development and sound management.

 

These services that we all accomplished for the benefit of the townspeople are clearly embodied in this report. With pride, I am very much honored to present them not just because its submission is required under existing laws. I am laying the report with a pure intention of having the same as a source of inspiration to make the coming years more productive and richer in terms of accomplishment.

The honor conferred by the Seal shows that the town has an above benchmark performance in internal housekeeping. It means that this administration accords primacy to sound fiscal management, transparency and accountability.

 

I commend the people behind me who exerted much effort in making 2011 a better year for Calatagan. The Honorable Members of the Sangguniang Bayan deserve to be applauded for bringing vital legislative measures to address the needs of the people. Major credit is likewise given to the municipal employees and barangay leaders for their concerted effort to be effective public servants in the real sense of the word. More so, appreciation is accorded to the people of Calatagan for their cooperation and support.

 

With the common drive of giving the excellent Serbisyong Galing sa Puso, I strongly believe that w can make Calatagan a Palace in Batangas.

                In consideration of the above-mentioned concerns, the LGU is in full compliance. All standing committees have been organized; it has adopted its own Internal Rules and Procedures. A legislative agenda, which provided well-defined legislative action and time frame, was also developed in full consultation with stakeholders.

    2. ON SOCIAL GOVERNANCE
                For the year 2011, the Municipality of Calatagan’s performance in the Health Services, Support to Education Services, Support to Housing and Basic Utilities and Peace, Security and Disaster Risk Management are as follows:

    In general, the delivery of basic education in the municipality shared a positive level of condition. In fact, it has gained a perfect rating of five (5) with an adjectival equivalent of excellent performance. The condition must be attributed to organized and functional municipal school board which meets regularly to discuss the annual plan and budget of the Special Education Fund.


                The Board has fairly utilized the SEF with prime consideration on the construction and repair of classroom buildings and school facilities and salary of extension teachers.

     

    For the period ended December 31, 2011, the Special Education Fund posted an income in the amount of Php7,155,598.95 of which Php5,372,131.28 fully spent for Personal Services, Maintenance and Other Operating Expense.

    As a result, the literacy rate, being a key impact of education sector, is high in school year 2011. This is attributed to the presence of number of schools in the municipality.


    HOUSING AND BASIC UTILITIES
                The LGU fell short in its attempt to increase its support to housing and basic utilities. It has received a rating of 3.40 which has an adjectival equivalent of fair.


                The low performance maybe attributed to the household’s access to potable water and sanitary toilets. The municipality has a total of 12,086 households. On this, 10,273 or 84.9 % have access to potable water while only 8,302 or 69 % have sanitary toilets.
                The LGU is doing its best to address the problem. It has purchased 500 pieces toilet bowl for distribution to those households without sanitary toilets.


                There are three barangays covered by level III system operated by Level III system operated by the cooperative which pumps water from ground sources and distributed to some households.
                Electricity is provided to almost all households. Telephone companies like Globe, Smart and WBTS accorded landline and wireless connection to some households. With the installation of cell sites in the area, some people have access to the state of the art communication facilities. In addition, the municipality has an access to postal services.


    PEACE, SECURITY AND DISASTER PREPAREDNESS
                The municipality is considered one of the most peaceful municipalities in the Province. Average crime rate for the year 2011 is 0.63 %. This is an indication that police force has been doing their job despite the lack of manpower and the increasing population of the municipality.


                For the year 2011, 11 crimes were recorded as index crimes. There are serious crimes in nature such as murder, rape, homicide, physical injury, robbery, theft, carnapping and cattle rustling. Most of the crime incidence occurring in the municipality are petty crimes and violations of ordinances.


    3.ON ECONOMIC GOVERNANCE
                The local government unit has improved in terms of economic governance as compared to last year’s rating on the three sub-areas namely Support to Agriculture Sector, Support to Fishery Services and Enterprises, Business and Industry Promotion.

    The municipality has fishing and farming as sources of income of the townspeople. The above result on the LGU’s performance on these areas may have been contributed to some factors on the indicators since the LGU is very much supportive to the aforesaid areas; the same being the bread and butter of the Calatagueños.
                The support of the provincial government when it comes to the improvement of farm-to-market road is an important factor which contributed much in elevating the quality of life of the townspeople.
                In the field of fishery, support has been extended. The LGU is aided by various non-government organizations which provide logistical and training support to fisher folks and local leaders.
                On top of this, the LGU is seeking for other alternative sources of income other than fishing and farming for the total satisfaction of the constituents.


    ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT
                RA 7160 otherwise known as the Local Government Code of 1991 states that the local government units shall enhance, among others, the right of people to a balanced ecology. It is in this premise that LGPMS includes environmental management as one of its performance  areas that include forest ecosystems management, coastal marine ecosystem management and urban ecosystem management.


                Under the Coastal Marine and Forest Ecosystem Management, the LGU performed well and garnered a rating of five (5.0). This could be attributed to the fact that the LGU enacted ordinances necessary in protecting the environment. Information on this has reached the barangays thru Information Education Campaign (IEC)

    Using LGPMS as a toll, the LGU performed well in waste management and pollution control having garnered a service area rating of five (5.0).

     

    The Municipality of Calatagan has exhibited excellent performance on Coastal Marine Ecosystem Management; the same being a core concern of the LGU. Long – term planning is practiced. CSOs and citizens are engaged in coastal marine protection and rehabilitation. Areas for rehabilitation and protection are set, and that target areas for rehabilitation and protection are met.


    Calatagan is a coastal municipality composed of twenty – five barangays; nineteen of which are coastal. Helping the LGU in the management and protection of the marine environment, aside from the Municipal Fisheries and Aquatic Resource Management Council (MFARMC) are volunteer Bantay Dagat members whose number in 2010 reached 42. They are deputized sea soldiers and are grouped for an effective seaborne patrol on the fluvial jurisdiction of the municipality. The LGU is maintaining 4 patrol boats, 5 marine protected areas, 11 mangrove parks / areas. Other than this, seaweed farms are introduced and the same became an alternative livelihood among local fishers.

     

    The growing number of population in the urban areas made the ecosystem management a tougher job among implementers; the LGU got a fair performance in the area. Programs on solid waste management have been started and implemented to promote awareness on litter – free community. In the year 2010, the LGU, through the Municipal Environment and Natural Resources Office, in coordination with the schools in the district, has launched the                     

    “ECO-BANK May Pera sa Basura Project”. This is seen to be an effective program targeting the youth as partner implementers

Part II - Financial Performance

ON REVENUE GENERATION

For the year 2011, the LGU estimated an annual budget in the amount of pesos : Eighty One Million Seventy One Thousand Five Hundred Seven Only (Php81,071,507.00); the same is illustrated as follows:  

          

PARTICULARS                  BUDGET ESTIMATE                    PERCENTAGE      
Real Property Taxes                           Php5,200,000.00                            6.41%
Locally Sourced Revenue                       11,250.00.00                            13.88%
Internal Revenue Allotment                  64,621,507.00                               79.71%
            TOTAL                                  Php81,071,507.00                                 100%

 

The budget estimate for the collection of Real Property Taxes and Internal Revenue Allotment fully met as shown in the table below: However, tax collection initiatives for the locally sourced revenue seemed not to be wholly successful since collection fell short.


PARTICULARS              ESTIMATE              COLLECTION          OVER COLLECTION
Real Property Taxes            Php5,200,000.00        Php5,993,726.59                Php793,726.59
Locally Sourced Revenue       11,250,000.00           9,534,402.60                  (1,7115,597.40)
Internal Revenue Allotment    64,621,507.00            69,988,008.00                   5,366,501.00
            TOTAL               Php81,071,507.00      Php85,516,137.19             Php4,444,630.19

 

The above data is one an eye – opener for the concerned officials and employees to come up with strategies to intensify tax collection efficiencies. The Local Government Code gave the LGUs the autonomy to use their resources to maximize revenue generation. Likewise, it is encouraged that LGUs should not be dependent on Internal Revenue Allotment.

           

It can be gleaned from the graph above that Calatagan is very much closer to the average collection of a second class municipality; it fell short by 0.71 %. Luckily, it has surpassed the national average by 0.87 %

Calatagan posed an excellent performance in this area wherein the regular revenue is higher than the average of LGUs with the same LGU type and income class and the national average of the same LGU type regardless of income class.

The municipality is very much behind the average of second class municipalities when it comes to the status of locally – sourced revenue level but is doing well when compared to the national average.

On Locally-Sourced Revenue Per Capita, Calatagan posed a fair performance as it did not meet both the municipal and national average.

Calatagan displayed exceptional performance when it comes to the collection of real property taxes. It has surpassed the municipal and national average by 14.06 % and 16.81 % respectively.

The LGU has exceeded on personal services expenditure ratio by 2.52% in the municipal average and is almost the same as that of the national average

The LGU should revisit its revenue allocation in order to meet the required municipal and national average where it fell short by Php700.88 and Php1,578.42 respectively.

 

ON RESOURCE ALLOCATION AND UTILIZATION
            In the year 2011, the Municipal Government of Calatagan has a total budgetary appropriation in the amount of Pesos: Eighty One Million Seventy One Thousand Five Hundred Pesos Only (Php81,071,507.00) broken down as follows:
            Personal Services                            Php39,644,087.00
            Maintenance and Other Operating Expenses   22,197,708.00
            Statutory and Contractual Obligations     11,049,302.00

            Budget for Senior Citizen’s Activities)      2,183,410.00
                        TOTAL                     Php81,071,507.00

 

            The aforesaid budgetary appropriation have not been fully utilized which resulted to an obligated balance in the amount of Pesos: Eight Million Eight Hundred Four Thousand Eight Hundred Eighteen and 89/100 (Php8,804,818.89). The expenditures are as follows:
            Personal Services                                           Php39,330,409.52
            MOOE                                                                29,541,588.02
            Capital Outlays                                                855,496.00
            TOTAL                                                               Php69,727,493.54


            The collaborative effort of the different department of the local government unit aided by the leaders and volunteers from the barangays thru the supervision and mandate of the Municipal Mayor has brought numerous accomplishments which are all beneficial to the majority.

In the year 2009, the Municipality of Calatagan’s performance is described below

On Social Development
            The LGU posed a high performance rating as it obtained a Development Index of 4.27 in social development which is 0.84 higher than the Overall Development Index.
                The result is attributed to the municipality’s programs and projects on health and nutrition, education, housing and basic utilities and peace and order condition.
            Being the primary concern in the HEARTS program of the LGU, health is given an utmost importance among the leaders and employees of the local government. In the year 2010, the Rural Health Unit, being the arm in implementing programs on health, has effectively implement the basic services that the townspeople need. Fund is appropriated to support various programs on disease prevention and cure. Being an accredited center of the Philhealth, it provides medical, dental and laboratory services to patients who also receive free medicines.

            The LGU conducted free medical mission in order that the patients from far – flung barangay’s have the chance to meet the minimum requirements of annual check-up.
            The Local School Board Chaired by the Municipal Mayor functioned effectively to support the public elementary and secondary education.

Zobel Foundation, Inc., Kabisig ng Kalahi, Rotary Club of Makati, Mrs. Ann Puno, etc.
            While it is true that the lack of tertiary school in the municipality is a major educational problem in the municipality, the LGU is doing its best to work on the problem. Meantime, a computer – technical school opened in Barangay Gulod and another technical – vocational school is set to open in Barangay Balibago.

 

On Environmental Development
            In term of environmental development, the municipality of Calatagan, Batangas posed an average performance by obtaining a 3.52 Development Index which is a little higher than the Overall Development Index which is 3.43.
            In the year 2010, the LGU has initiated various projects on environmental concern a detailed accomplishment of the Municipal Environment and Natural Resources Office is presented in attachment 3 of this Annual Report.


On Economic Development
            A low rating of 2.50 Development Index is gleaned from the wheel chart; it does not reach the national target average of 3.43.

It is noted that income per capita is very low and that poverty incidence is alarming. Thus, the LGU has focused some of its projects on livelihood activities for women and other organizations in the year 2010. It has also tapped higher national government agencies to address the problem; luckily, Calatagan, is chosen as a recipient of the Pantawid sa Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4 Ps) of the Department of Social Welfare and Development.
