  • Attendance to Sessions:

All members of the Sangguniang Panlungsod are expected to attend all scheduled sessions. Only for a justifiable cause can a member be allowed to be absent during a particular session.  The Sanggunian House Rules even provides that the legislative body may, by a majority vote of the members present during a session, compel the immediate attendance of any member by ordering his arrest and impose on him such applicable sanctions.

For the year 2009, attendance to the scheduled sessions by the members of the Sangguniang Panlungsod was relatively high, with all the sessions meeting the required number of attendees to constitute a quorum. The number of absences noted ranged from as low as one (1) to as high as eight (8), except for one council member who was on an extended sick leave and for another councilor who resigned from office.  Nonetheless, most, if not all of the time, these absences were either due to other official business or covered by a duly approved official leave.

Of all the council members, two (2) councilors, i.e., Hon. Arsenio C. Pacana and Hon. Lea Ouano-Japson, stood out as the ones who were able to register a perfect attendance to all the regular and special sessions conducted (49 sessions).  Hon. Jose C. Daluz III and Hon. Augustus G. Pe, Jr. likewise registered a near perfect attendance at 48; followed by Hon. Roberto A. Cabarrubias with 47 attendance to his credit, while Hon. Edgardo C. Labella, Hon. Richard Z. Osmena and Hon. Eduardo R. Rama, Jr. each registered with 46 attendance to their credit.

For the year 2009, various legislations were proposed to be enacted by the 11th Sangguniang Panlungsod.  As a matter of course, the requisite public hearing for each proposed ordinance was conducted.  On this aspect of the legislative process, truly the Sangguniang Panlungsod cannot be faulted for indeed the August Body dutifully observes and sees to it that this legal requirement of the legislative process is duly complied with.

A total of thirty-seven (37) public hearings were facilitated and conducted during the year (2009) involving the same number of proposed ordinances.  Of the said number of proposed ordinances that underwent public hearing during the year, 14 were passed and approved and finally became a local ordinance.
