Six barangay kagawads and a Sangguniang Kabataan chairman (SK) in Barangay Gildore, Sara, Iloilo have submitted their resignation due to the non-payment of their honorarium.

The resignation of the barangay officials and SK chair was an offshoot of their complaint against Barangay Gildore village chieftain Patricio Alcantara Jr. for the non-payment of their two-month honorarium.

The village chief admitted withholding the honorarium of six barangay kagawads and SK chair, explaining that they were not helping and participating in productive undertakings like the construction of the village chapel.

The Sangguniang Bayan of Sara through its secretary James Balsomo said they are willing to listen to the arguments of both camps on Monday next week to address the conflict between the punong barangay and his councilmen. (PNA)
