Just recently, Iloilo City Mayor Jerry Treñas shared in a Facebook post that the Iloilo City Government is looking to hire forty (40) green guards. The responsibility of green guards is to watch over the plazas, streets, and esplanades, as well as to maintain cleanliness and to guard ornamental plants in park areas.
“The Iloilo City Government will hire another 40 green guards to watch over the plazas, streets, and esplanades, to maintain cleanliness and to guard the ornamental plants and flowers that beautify our parks. We have allotted a budget for a total of 100 personnel, in addition to the 60 personnel that we have hired last year,” states Iloilo City Mayor Jerry Treñas.
Treñas deems that the initiative will help eradicated littering, especially during festivities in the City of Love.
