Navotas City will soon have four new barangay with the approval by the Senate of three bills that seeks to create additional villages.
Navotas City Rep. Toby Tiangco and Mayor John Rey Tiangco said once the measures are signed into law, the city will have a total of 18 villages. The bills were authored and sponsored by Sen. Juan Edgardo Angara, chairman of the Senate committee on local government.
