Local Government Unit (LGU) Malay is now preparing for the Kalibo Sto. Niño Ati-Atihan Festival 2015 “Higante Contest.”
Indeed, Municipal Mayor John Yap request for an authority to enter into a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with the Provincial Government of Aklan with regards to the financial assistance for the said contest and Aklan Festival Parade.
During the SB Regular Session, the council talks about the said MOA for the incoming referral and agreed that it will be deferred on the Committee on Laws and Ordinances by presiding officer Vice Mayor Wilbec Gelito for further study.
It can be recalled that Aklan Provincial Government provides financial assistance for the 17 municipalities but has not yet been released.
Meanwhile, the “Higante Contest” is one of the highlights of Kalibo Ati-Atihan Festival this coming January 9-18, 2015.
