CEBU CITY, Philippines — The Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) has released the list of local government units (LGUs) that have failed the assessment for the 60-day road clearing from August to October 2019.

In the DILG website, they posted that at least 98 LGUs all over the country failed the assessment. These include 12 towns and cities from Central Visayas.

In the province of Cebu, seven LGUs failed including Carcar City, and the towns of Badian, Carmen, Compostela, Ginatilan, Moalboal, and Pinamungajan.

For the province of Bohol, four LGUs did not make the cut including Antequera, Garcia Hernandez, Talibon, and Valencia.

Larena town in Siquijor also failed the assessment.

DILG Secretary Eduardo Año said the LGUs, which did not get compliance ratings, would be given show-cause orders and would be made to explain their failure to comply with the government order.
