IN an effort to maximize its efficiency, Mayor Alex R. Jajalla recently ordered the reorganization of the composition of the Sanitary "Pulis" (Sapul), the enforcement arm of the Lex's Clean Mahinog Program.
Under Executive Order No. 15-2010, the mayor named Romulo Y. Saligumba, a former barangay captain of Hubangon, as chief operating officer of the Lex's clean Mahinog.

Lex's Clean Mahinog, an integral part of the A.L.E.X. 2 development agenda, is a program that instills into the minds of the people the values of cleanliness, cooperation, volunteerism and the concern for the environment, including health and safety.
A.L.E.X is an acronym for A- Agriculture and fishery development; L- Local government excellence, livelihood and local economy; E- Environmental care and Eco-tourism; X - eXpress delivery of basic services for social, health and security of the people.
Under the same Order, the Sapul was given the primary responsibility and authority to enforce Municipal Ordinance No. 2007 – 094, otherwise known as the Code of Cleanliness, Sanitation and Solid Waste Ordinance of the Municipality of Mahinog; and the ordinance against coconut theft.
The Sapul will conduct regular patrolling and monitoring activities at public places, streets, residences and business establishments to check on the compliance of the ordinance and issue citation tickets to the violators, among others.
Morever, the mayor also designated the office of the sanggunian secretary to act as Sapul secretariat, which shall handle its administrative, technical and liaising activities.
