The DENR CENRO Boracay Island has a new officer in charge.
DENR Regional Executive Director Adeluisa G. Siapno, through DENR Regional Special Order No. 2013-270 dated July 16, 2013, has designated Atty. Elizur G. Militar to momentarily take the place of incumbent CENRO Boracay Island officer-in-charge Mirza Samillano.
Samillano is taking a leave of absence for “health reasons.”
The Order read: “In the interest of the service and to avoid any disruption in the operations of the CENRO Boracay Island…Atty. Elizur G. Militar, Project Evaluation Officer II, DENR Region 6, Iloilo City is hereby designated as Officer-in-Charge of CENRO Boracay Island, Malay Aklan.”
Militar is reporting to office today, July 22.
DENR 6 is completely drug free
Now, the Environment Department can declare all of its offices around the region drug-free zones after all of its officials and employees got negative results of their drug tests.
The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) 6 total employees of 1,210 have willingly submitted themselves to the mandatory drug test in support to President Rodrigo Duterte’s campaign against use of illegal drugs.
“As public servants, it is a must to live a life of integrity and of being trustworthy. How can we serve the people right if we are not having the right emotional and mental attitude? Drug use damages the heart and mind. I am proud that none from the DENR family is using it,” Regional Director Jim O Sampulna said.
Moreover, since the start of the implementation of the Rationalization Plan for DENR where position items based on the plantilla approved by the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) are being filled-up, it is a policy in Region 6 that all new entrants must undergo drug testing.
The DENR 6 is comprised of five Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Offices (PENRO) in Aklan, Antique, Capiz, Guimaras and Iloilo with five Community Environment and Natural Resources Offices (CENRO), namely: San Jose and Culasi in Antique province, and Btac. Nuevo, Sara, Guimbal in Iloilo province.
DENR Secretary Regina Paz L. Lopez, herself an advocate of healthy lifestyle, encouraged all DENR employees to be good public servants and help lift people out of poverty by working towards empowering people through environmental programs.
