Wichit wins good governance award
PHUKET TOWN: Wichit Tambon Administration Organization (OrBorTor) has won a best-governance award and additional funding of 1.7 million baht in competition against seven other Phuket OrBorTor. OrBorTor Pa Klok received additional funds of 1.4 million baht for coming second and OrBorTor Sri Suntorn received 1.2 million baht for third place, Sorawich Chaiyasawat, Chief of the Phuket Provincial Local Administration Office, said today. A committee of representatives from the government and private sectors, headed by Phuket Governor CEO Pongpayome Vasaputi, also considered entries from Maikhao, Rawai, Sakoo, Thepkrasattri and Rassada tambons. The Office of the Prime Minister cooperated with the Department of Local Administration in Bangkok to provide the 500-million-baht budget to reward local administration organizations around the country for good governance. K. Sorawich added that the Tambon Council and Tambon Administration Act, passed earlier this year, means that leadership of an OrBorTor, which formerly carried the title of Chairman (Prathan), now carries the honorific of President Nai Yok.
