One of the initiatives of Mayor Chiquiting Sagarbarria in pushing hig flagship program, the landmarks project, and urban development is the upgrading of the Dumaguete City Hall building.
The city ground porch has now a new image. In fact, the porch improvement seemed very timely because the wake of the late Gov. Tuting Perdices was held at the new porch were all people could have equal opportunity in paying their last respects to the man we dearly loved.
Another portion of City Hall that is being upgraded is the the City Planning & Development Office headed by Engr. Josie Antonio, and the office of the City Administrator William E. Ablong.
Both agencies in the LGU are now holding offices in more spacious, air-conditioned rooms.
All sections of services under CPDO are now under one roof, and more people can be accommodated in one spacious room. This is to enhace their services, and hopefully, will establish a well- coordinated planning and development for the city of Dumaguete.
The City Administrator, along with his staff, is also occupying another wider room, more spacious than before.
Hopefully, the rest of the offices will get their upgrading after all vacated rooms will have been fully renovated. These include the offices for Permit & Licensing, the Human Resources, and Public Information.
Again, this initiative of Mayor Sagarbarria is in fulfillment of his agenda of advancing Dumaguete to its peak, and providing the constituents of Dumaguete enhanced and better services.
Meanwhile, the Mayor is contemplating on the construction of a finance building in the City Hall premises to serve as the City’s Financial Tower where all financial sections are housed. These are the offices of Budget, Accounting, Treasury, and the Audit.
And of course, along with it, is a fully-air-conditioned Taxpayers’ Lounge, with LCD TV.
