Under the local decree, Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista shall enter into tripartite memorandum of agreement with the Lion’s President League of the Philippines (LPLP) and Barangay Mariana for the use of the establishment.


The LPLP will livelihood training and seminars for the residents at the newly-built two-story training center of the barangay, which the city council constructed to provide a venue for free training and seminars.


“The LPLP has made its representations with Barangay Mariana and the Quezon City government to allow it to continue its advocacy of providing free livelihood and skills training at the Barangay Mariana Training Center,” based on a resolution penned by Councilor Raquel Malangen.


Earlier, the PNA reported that Bautista turned over 300 body-worn cameras and 3,000 handcuffs to the Quezon City Police District (QCPD) to improve police visibility in the city.


QCPD Director, Chief Supt. Joselito Esquivel Jr., expressed his gratitude to the entire council for the new equipment.


“With these body-cams, we would have support in our anti-criminality operations, especially in our campaign against illegal drugs,” Esquivel said.
