TACLOBAN CITY-The 28th year of the enactment of the Local Government Code was marked by different government offices based in the city on Thursday (Oct.10) held at the Robinsons North Activity Area.
Presidential Proclamation No. 63 series of 1992 declares October 10 as the Local Government Day.
Apart from the celebration, a video presentation on Mayor Alfred Romualdez’s accomplishments during his first 100 days in office was also highlighted.
A detailed report of the accomplishments was presented by Executive Assistant Atty. Christian De Dios.
The Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) spearheaded this year’s celebration which carries the theme: “Matino at Mahusay na Pamahalaang Lokal: Pundasyon ng Makatao, Mapayapa at Maunlad na Bansa.”
Local Government Code of 1991 is considered as the bible of local governance which provides for a more responsive and accountable local government structure whereby LGUs are given more powers, authority, responsibilities, and resources instituted through a system of decentralization.
