Tagbilaran City Vice Mayor Jose Antonio S. Veloso spearheaded the groundbreaking and time capsuling ceremony for the upcoming long-awaited Legislative Building on Friday, Feb. 18.

This marks the start of the construction of the new Legislative Building.

Rev. Fr. Martin Lupiba blessed the grounds as to where the Legislative Building will be constructed, which is in between the current City Hall and the City Health Office Building.

City Administrator Cathelyn Torremocha said the new building will provide more spacious offices which will provide ease and comfort in the crafting of more ordinances and resolutions, to better serve the public.

In his opening remarks, Veloso thanked the hard work and perseverance of the members of the Fourteenth Sangguniang Panlungsod for making this possible.

It is important to be recalled that the designs and intent were already set in place way back 2019. However, the funds intended for the building were realigned due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The time capsule contained the building’s plans and designs noting the importance of preparation in any endeavor, and the preservation of the original designs, just in case changes will be made.

Councilor Tim Butalid, in his Closing Remarks, stated it more aptly that the Legislative Building shows that the City of Tagbilaran is continually growing and improving. This will surely decongest the current City Hall, and will provide a better venue to serve the public.

The event was also attended by the members of the Fourteenth Sangguniang Panglungsod, SP Secretary Lynneth Mae S. Ibba, Arch. Nino Guidaben, Arch. Raul Romo and City Engineer Teodoro Estoque.

Also present were Councilors Agustinus Gonzaga, Adam Relson Jala, Jonas Cacho, Joseph Bompat, Nerio Zamora II, Dulce Glovasa, Vicente Polinar, Philipp Besas, Odysseus Glovasa and Jose Floro Ringca.
