    There will be a plebiscite here in Tarlac City this Feb. 18 on whether the city's status will be elevated into a Highly Urbanized City (HUC). what are the advantages and disadvantages of a HUC. What will we as citizens living in this city get to gain from HUC?

    Higher taxes? :lol:

    AFAIK, more autonomy from the local government (or wait, diba City na ang Tarlac?), and a better operating budget, hence, you SHOULD get better police and fire services. Not sure exactly.

    Ang pagbalik ng comeback...

    component city ang classification ng Tarlac City ngayon. under the provincial government pa rin. pero kung highly urbanized city na, wala ng pakialam ang provincial government. kaya todo oppose ang governor's office dito. magkakaroon din yata ng sariling congressional district kung sakali.

    Di tama nga. Higher taxes maybe, but higher budget, hence, should be better services, in terms of schools, hospitals, police and infrastructure.

    for tax and budget purposes lang yan. mas gusto lalo madami makolekta tax. mas gusto mas malaking makuha na budget. this won't necessarily translate to better services and infrastructures. sa pinas pa. unless na lang you have local officials na may malasakit talaga.

    Sir Boybi, napansin ko, masyado ata napakarami ng trycicle sa Tarlac. Ang dami nila sa daan, grabe. Sobra traffic minsan.

    The most important advantage is a larger share of the IRA from the national treasury.

    A bigger IRA means more funds for services and infastructure for the city.

    Disadvantage is - more funds for corrupt city officials to mess with.

    When BF first came in Marikina, one of the first things he did was to raise taxes. dami lagi nagpo-protesta nun sa munisipyo.

    But look at where marikina is now. Kailangan lang talaga officials na may pakinabang sa bayan.

    hindi yung nakikinabang sa bayan.
