It is with great honor to present to you the DILG Tacloban City Official Website!


As I recapitulate and reexamine the details of this platform, it is clear that the accomplishments recounted within it are the result of extraordinary collaboration by the Department’s most important assets—its people and stakeholders.

The difference between success and failure is a great team. It is with great honor and humility for the DILG Tacloban City Operations Office to say that the accomplishments of this level is a product of  concerted efforts and resources who believe and aspire the same goals and objectives. At every layer of our organization, each individual plays valued efforts and activities that are properly planned and integrated in moving the state of local governance forward.

For calendar year 2018, the DILG Tacloban Operations Office, being the primary agency tasked to develop and scale up the capacities and compliance of the City Government of Tacloban and its 138 component barangays, rendered performance oversight and provided technical assistance packaged to encourage performance and excellence; strategically positioned ourselves in order to promote LGU self-reliance and development-orientism where rule of law and public safety prevail.

With the capability of the City Government further built, it has to a certain extent contributed to the national development goal of inclusive growth and poverty reduction. Even with constant exposure to change, the Department and its allied branches, the City Government of Tacloban, the Liga ng mga Barangays, the members of the City Management Coordinating Council as well as our other NGAs and CSO partners remain enthusiastic on the transformations and contributions to our priorities.

After all, we all look forward to new horizons. More than the recognition, guaranteeing the commitment of all stakeholders in improving the lives of Taclobanons through effective and efficient service delivery, is of paramount importance. Sustaining all of the efforts narrated in this report come with a big challenge. But with excellence in local governance in mind, everything is possible.

This is our humble contribution to the national government’s campaign for change in local governance.

Padayon Tacloban!

Thank you very much and  Mabuhay!
