MABALACAT CITY — The local government here will begin utilizing the Landbank Link.BizPortal with the processing of business permits, after it formally signed a memorandum of agreement with the bank for the use of the online payment system.
According to Mayor Crisostomo Garbo, this is part of his administration’s efforts to provide ease and efficient government service in Mabalacat City.
Mayor Garbo said the city will also subsequently be able to provide the same payment option for all its government transactions and services.
The Landbank Link.BizPortal is an electronic payment facility that allows individuals to pay for services offered by the city. The e-payment portal will provide Mabalaqueños an option for online payment in any local government unit.
Garbo said Link.BizPortal will help expedite financial transactions through the online payment system and have an improved, better government service to the Mabalaquenos.
“This is a great convenience for us to have a hassle-free online payment of our services as it is also more accessible to the Mabalaquenos. It will establish accountability of our financial services resulting in less corruption as it decreases the direct and indirect costs with the physical cash transaction,” said Garbo.

Francis Dimaliwat, city treasurer Marlene Mendiola, city accountant Oscar Ian Deang Jr, city planning and development officer Rosan Paquia, business permit and licensing officer-in-charge Raisin Mendoza, human resource management office head Merla De Leon, city information office head Jay Pelayo IV, and budget officer Narce Paquia.
