Traditional Earners Top Bicol Municipal LGU’s 2006 Income

The municipal port of Pilar (Sorsogon), the jump-off point for inter-island vessels to various destinations like the towns of Masbate province. Passengers inside one of the vessels staring outside.
Port of Pilar: A welcome sight that seems discomforting : The emerging face of urban dent, unplanned residential-commercial enclave, posing danger to both residents and travellers, and threatens ecological balance, too.

For the fiscal year of 2006, 33 out of 107 Bicol municipal LGUs earned an income over and above the P50M mark. Camarines Norte capital town of Daet topped with an annual income of P158M followed by Albay’s premier town of Daraga. CamSur’s Pili earned P77M to place 6th. Catanduanes capital of Virac earned P65M for the 17th.

Big town Labo, ranked 2nd for the province of CamNorte is listed 3rd for the region. Libmanan ranked 1st for the province but came down 4rth for Bicol. Calabanga earned P72.8M which is 3rd for the province and 11th for the region. Bottom of the list is Mercedes, small in land area but big in making an annual income, lands 4rth for the province but 33rd for the region.

Out of 33 LGUs on the table, CamNorte had 4 on the top list, 7 for Albay, 11 from CamSur, 5 from Sorsogon, 5 from Masbate and 1 from Catanduanes. Below is the table for easy reference:

Internal Revenue Allotment: The CamSur town of Libmanan received a good share of IRA from the national government, or 93.21% of its annual income.  Top earner CamNorte capital Daet is not IRA-dependent, its share is  39.47% of its yearly source of budget.

Albay’s Daraga LGU also has low share of IRA which ranged into the 46.20% of its total yearly income.  Calabanga’s total receipts include a good percentage of  84.56%  reliance on the revenue allotment from the national government.

For other LGUs listed about here, just divide the IRA with the total annual income to arrive at the municipality’s share and dependence on allotments.

Just wonder how LGUs spend allotment for Education, Culture & Sports with the amount listed on annual budget.  Polangui topped the list with +P8.1M for 2006.  Two more Albay towns, for a total of three, provided higher money more than any other in the entire region.

Interesting that Cataingan of Masbate shelved a serious amount  for education. So with CamNorte’s Daet and Labo.  Goa, Pili and Calabanga provided over P2M for the same category.
