The city of Muntinlupa now has another reason to be proud of–and at the same time, to be assured of–in terms of excellent civil service.

This is because the Muntinlupa City Hall, after months of tests, consultations, and hard work, is finally recognized as a drug-free workplace by the Dangerous Drugs Board (DDB).

Mayor Ruffy Biazon and city officials were joined by DDB chairman Sec. Catalino Cuy for the unveiling of the drug-free workplace marker at City Hall September 25.

“This recognition is the culmination of months of fora and symposia and random drug tests that we conducted among all the employees and officials of the City Government. We are grateful for the cooperation of everyone and this gives another level of credibility to our service to Muntinlupeños,” Biazon said.

Under the City Government’s Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Office (DAPCO), Muntinlupa has been recognizing drug-free workplaces and residences throughout the city, including leading brands and villages.

The initiative to have City Hall declared drug-free started in December 2018 during the administration of then-Mayor Fresnedi with the issuance of Executive Order 29, but was hindered largely by the pandemic when it happened. This project was then continued by Biazon by virtue of the amended Ordinance No. 081-2023. ###
