Ilocos Sur welcomes new PENRO and CENRO


BANTAY, Ilocos Sur –  As Department of Environment and Natural Resources Regional Director Paquito  T. Moreno, Jr. announces re-assignments and designations of Provincial and Community Environment and Natural Resources Officers in the region early this year, some PENROs and CENROs already have started to report and assume on their new posts. The said shuffle of PENR and CENR Officers is still part of the implementation of the Rationalization Plan of DENR which is a move to transform the Executive Branch into a more effective and efficient government.

            On January 14, 2015, the Ilocos Sur PENR Office welcomed two dedicated leaders to who are up to the challenge to head the said field office. Seasoned Geodetic Engineer, former CENR Officer of Dagupan City and Division Chief of the Surveys and Mapping Division in the Regional Office, Raymundo C. Gayo is now the PENR Officer for Ilocos Sur. While DMO IV of CENRO Bantay For. Francisco Arenas becomes new OIC CENR of Bantay.

         Meanwhile, Former Ilocos Sur PENR Officer Benjamin Abucay has been assigned in Alaminos City, Pangasinan as CENR Officer. Former Bantay CENR Officer Florencio Soliven was detailed in the Office of the Regional Director in San Fernando City, La Union to handle special concerns.

            In his message, RD Moreno mentioned that these changes happen with the directives of the highest official of the department. “It’s good to know that among the considerations is that we are putting people where we have people with managerial skill sets that will best serve our clients. Because at the end of the day, we shall be leveraging the message or we shall be accounting totally the overall performance of the region. We are moving people because we wanted to maximize their spaces and skills”, RD Moreno stated.

            Newly installed Ilocos Sur PENR Officer Gayo and  Bantay CENR Officer Arenas thanked everyone for the warm welcome and  support. Both expressed their anticipation to serve to the said field office along with the assistance of equally dedicated public servants. (Felisandelle C. De Vera, RPAO)
