City Mayor Neil E. lizares III allocated funds for the monthly financial support of the city’s tanods, with each one receiving P 500 for their monthly allowance.

Of the number, 253 tanods have already received their monthly allowance as of August 7 at the Dela Rama Hall New City Hall building, a release from the Talisay City Information Office said.

The tanods also took part in a series of trainings on basic life saving, firefighting and other multi-sectoral concerns to equip them with all the skills and knowledge needed for their job.
