The Aklan Sangguniang Panlalawigan (SP) confirmed the appointments of two provincial government department heads pursuant to the provision of the Local Government Code or RA 7160.
As requested by Gov. Carlito S. Marquez, the appointment of Atty. Lee Manares as head of the Provincial Legal Office of Aklan is confirmed effective August 2, 2010. Likewise the appointment of William Castillo as Provincial Agriculturist was also confirmed effective on September 1, 2010 as reported by Richie D. Oloroso of the Aklan SP.
Castillo was Senior Agriculturist when he was designated OIC of the Office of the Provincial Agriculturist on February 16, 2008 after Mr. Delano T.

The position of provincial agriculturist became vacant after Mr. Tefora retired from the government service in July 2010.
The confirmation of their appointments came during the SP Aklan regular session on Sept. 1, 2010.
The appointment of Atty. Diego M. Luces as provincial administrator of Aklan was also confirmed earlier.
On the other hand, the SP also approved the accreditation of World Vision Inc. and Panguma Inc. as Ms. Richie Oloroso reported. /MP
