The Philippines has been a "decentralized" form of government since 1991, contrary to what most Filipinos think. Ever since the creation of Republic Act 7160, each LGU is responsible for its own domain. Even the smallest LGU the barangay creates its own Budget. It is not dependent on handouts from the city, municipality or province. "IMPERIAL MANILA IS A MYTH!", it does not exist anymore. The Philippine budget formulation system is not centralized. "Budgetary planning has been DECENTRALIZED since 1991". It is the responsibility of each LGU to submit their budgetary needs for review. Failure to submit is the problem.

Wars of ancient history were about possessions, territory, power, control, family, betrayal, lover's quarrel, politics and sometimes religion.

But we are in the Modern era and supposedly more educated and enlightened .

Think about this. Don't just brush off these questions.

  • Why is RELIGION still involved in WARS? Isn't religion supposed to be about PEACE?
  • Ask yourself; What religion always campaign to have its religious laws be accepted as government laws, always involved in wars and consistently causing WARS, yet insists that it's a religion of peace?


There are only two kinds of people who teach tolerance:
  1. The Bullies. They want you to tolerate them so they can continue to maliciously deprive you. Do not believe these bullies teaching tolerance, saying that it’s the path to prevent hatred and prejudice.
  2. The victims who are waiting for the right moment to retaliate. They can’t win yet, so they tolerate.

P300M OK’d for construction of Pagudpud viaduct 2.
LAOAG CITY – The construction of a second viaduct in Pagudpud town will start this year after the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) assured at least PHP300 million in initial funding. Ilocos Norte First District Representative Ferdinand Alexander Marcos confirmed this on Tuesday, saying the second viaduct would prevent frequent road closures along the Manila North Road in Barangay Pancian brought by landslides and rockslides from bad weather. But unlike the first Pagudpud viaduct, Marcos said the next viaduct will have a more modern structural design with the help of a Japanese consultant who has expertise in building viaducts.

Geography of Bayawan City, Negros Oriental, Philippines

  • Land Area (as of 2007, in hectares)= 69,908

On December 23, 2000, through a referendum, Bayawan City became a fifth class Component City in the 3rd Congressional District of the Province Negros Oriental located in the southwestern portion. It is composed of twenty-eight (28) barangays with a total land area of 69,908 hectares, the largest in the province. Bayawan accounts for 13% of the province’s total land area which is twice the size of the whole Siquijor Province (Island). It has a population of 101,391 with an average annual growth rate of 2.59%. Mabinay bound it to the north, Sta. Catalina to the east, Tanjay City to the southeast and Basay to the west. It also shares a boundary with Kabankalan City of Negros Occidental on the northwest. Bayawan City has a relatively short coastline of 15 kilometers west to east and comprising seven (7) coastal barangays running a stretch of almost 60 kilometers from the south coast going to the northernmost portion .

The City of Bayawan is subdivided into three development zones namely the urban area, sub-urban area, and rural area. The urban area constitutes only 2.3% (1,573 hectares) of the city’s total area and contains the main institutional, commercial and central business district of the city. It functions as the main economic hub of the city with economic growth nodes established in strategically located barangays in the hinterlands.

Residential zones are considered in the sub-urban area to provide settlements for the people in the commercial center and in the industrial zones. The rural area accounts for the large 83.1% of the city’s total land area and is basically agricultural however; some barangays are identified to contain a high level of commerce, trade and agro-processing industry being the economic growth nodes of the city.

History of Bayawan City, Negros Oriental, Philippines

article from: Bayawan City -

It was in 1751 when the Spanish friars first established their settlement. 116 years later, Tolong Nuevo (Bayawan’s former name) had existed as early as 1868 as part of Tolong Viejo (now the Municipality of Sta. Catalina). It was not until 1872 when she was formally organized as a pueblo.

In 1953, the name Tolong Nuevo was changed to Bayawan, by virtue of Republic Act 694 as approved by the 3rd congress of the Philippines, consigning the name "Tolong" into obscurity and deep oblivion soon slowly to be forgotten by the succeeding generations.

From the former name "Tolong", it was changed to Bayawan in a tragic tale that involved a "Bukidnon", the so-called natives of Bayawan and a priest. The town center was previously located in an uphill settlement called ’Omod’ now Brgy. Maninihon. A chapel was erected to serve the religious needs of the new converts. One Sunday morning while the priest was celebrating the Holy Eucharist, an enraged "Bukidnon" barged in the middle of the assembly. In the act of consecration, while the priest was elevating the Holy Host, this enraged "Bukidnon" threw a lance to the priest, instantly killing him.

The so-called native of Bayawan, the "Bukidnon" had this ritual called "Mag-ahat--a ritual practice involving the act of killing. The practice of "Mag-ahat" was to avenge the death of their fellow tribesman to appease the spirit of the deceased.

The tragic event left an indelible mark in the minds of the local folks. Thus, the name "Bayawan" from the Visayan term "Bayaw"--to hoist or elevate.

Bayawan’s cityhood is a story in itself and a classic example how an iota of an idea can grow into a full bloom reality if nurtured with proper care coupled with great enthusiasm and perseverance. Hon. German P. Saraña Jr., the then vice-mayor, had nurtured this dream. The path to city hood was an arduous path. Stony would be an understatement if we have to least describe it.

After finding out the that Bayawan has met two (income and land area) out of the three (income, land area and population) initial requirements for a municipality to become a city, a letter was sent to the Department of Finance, Bureau of Local Government Finance dated August 3, 1998 "requesting a certification as to the average regular income of the municipality of Bayawan, Negros Oriental for calendar years 1996-1997 based on 1991 constant prices". The reply from the Department of Finance dated October 23, 1998 was enclosed with a certification stating that "the average annual regular income in the amounts to Twenty Seven Million Two Hundred Twenty Nine Thousand Seven Hundred Fifty Two and 62/100 Pesos (Php 27,229,752.62)which exceeds the minimum income requirement of P20,000,000.00 provided for the Section 450 of R.A. 7160 (Local Government Code of 1991) for the conversion of a municipality into a component city."

The Hon. German P. Saraña, Jr., as presiding officer of the Sangguniang Bayan then passed a resolution to the Provincial Council to comment of the petition for the city hood. With the Provincial Board’s favorable recommendation, the paper chase began. Documents to support the petition were prepared; Certification by the Department of Finance that the average annual income of the proposed city meets the minimum income requirement and that its creation will not reduce the income based on 1991 constant prices, of the original Local Government Unit or Local Government Unit to less than the prescribed minimum; Certification by the National Statistics Office as to population of the proposed city and that its creation will not reduce the population of the original Local Government Unit to less than the prescribed minimum.

Certification by the Land Management Bureau that the land area of the proposed city meets the minimum land area requirement and that its creation will not reduce the land area of the Original Local Government Unit or Local Government Units, indicating the area to be created into a city. The map shall be prepared by the provincial, city or district engineer as the case may be and shall clearly indicate the road network within the proposed city; Certification by Land management Bureau that disposable and alienable public lands are available in the area to be created into a city sufficient to meet its growing population and the following purposes: Government center site of not less than ten thousand (10,00) square meters which shall include the city hall site and those of other government buildings; market site of not less than ten thousand (10,000) square meters, located out of view of the city hall, schools, plaza, and cemetery and near but not along a provincial road, railroad station, navigable river or sea; Plaza or park of not less than ten thousand (10,000) square meters located preferably in front of the city hall; School site of not less than ten thousand (10,000) square meter, in well-drained location that conforms with the requirements prescribed by public school authorities; and Cemetery site of not less than five thousand (5,000) square meters for every ten thousand (10,000) population which conforms with the requirements prescribed by the health

In addition, there were documents that contained the number and the nature of existing and commercial establishments in the territory of the proposed city as certified by NSO; Sources of potable water supply for the inhabitants as certified by the Local Water Utilities Administration (LWUA) or the Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System (MWSS), as the case maybe; Facilities, plans, and site for sewerage, garbage and waste disposals as certified by the Local engineer; and such other information that the petitioners may deem relevant for consideration in the petition.

After all the documents were collated, it was then submitted to the Office of the Congressman Herminio G. Teves of the Third District of the Province of Negros Oriental for the drafting of the proposed bill converting the Municipality of Bayawan into a component city of the Province of Negros Oriental. Thus, House Bill 7004 was born sponsored by Hon. Herminio G. Teves, 3rd Congressional District Representative of Negros Oriental. After the bill passed third reading and was approved, a public hearing was set on June 27, 1999.

A couple of months before the d-day, the municipality was in a hub of activities. Several meetings were conducted to ensure that everything would turn out to be perfect to give the visiting guests the impression that the Bayawanons were not only willing but also ready to become city residents.

Invitations to attend the Public Hearing were sent out to practically all sectors. Representatives of every stratum of the society were given a rare chance to vent their opinions regarding the proposed city hood. Local officials led by Mayor Ernesto T. Tijing, Vice-Mayor German P. Saraña Jr., the members of the Sanguniang Bayan, Hon. Rene Gaudiel, Hon. Lito Bito-on, Hon. Peter Paul Renacia, Hon. Rowena Cabanban, Hon. Guillermo Diao, Hon. Antonio Villamil, Hon. Eustaquia Elnar, Hon. Samuel Quindo, Hon. Fred Ian Trayvilla, and Hon. Hearty Soldevilla came in full force and ushered the solons who came all the way from Manila, the Visayas and those from the Province of Negros Oriental. Among those were Hon. Cong. Romeo Candazo, Hon. Cong. Roy Padilla, Sen. Franklin Drilon, Hon. Cong. Mar Roxas. Hon. Cong. Makarambung, Dumaguete City Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo and Vice-Mayor Woodrow Maquiling, Bais City Mayor Francisco Villanueva, Municipality of Zamboanguita Mayor Marcelo Adanza, Provincial Governor George P. Arnaiz and Provincial Vice-Governor Edgar Y. Teves. Hon. Cong. Herminio Teves, the Provincial Board Members and people from the media coming from Manila and from Dumaguete City also came to give full media coverage of the proceedings.

The result was overwhelming. The constituents’ voices were heard and everybody gave a resounding positive response to make Bayawan a component city of Negros Oriental.

It took more than a year when city hood crept back in the consciousness of the Bayawanons.

Back in Manila, House Bill 7004 (the Congressional Bill that will convert Bayawan into a component city of the Province of Negros Oriental) was revised and became house Bill 8191. Finally, the House of Representatives passed it on November 20, 2000.

Sergio Osmeña II sponsored Senate Bill 2197, which the senate finally passed on Nov. 15, 2000.

When Gov. "Chavit" Singson came out of the open to expose the "Jueting Scandal" involving ousted president Joseph Ejercito Estrada, a cloud of uncertainty hovered over the city hood of Bayawan. It was as if the sword of Damocles hanged over. . . it was as if a life support system was snuffed off from a patient to die peacefully.

While the whole country were glued to their television sets, following the bore some exchanges of judicial arguments regarding "subpoena duces tecum or subpoena ad testificandum"’ everyone in the Local Government Unit was asking the same question which none of us could give a categorically correct answer. For two occasions, there were notices sent from the office of Cong. Teves in Manila asking the local officials and department heads to pack their things and hie off to Manila only to be told later that the trip was postponed to an undisclosed future date.

It was as if the wait is taking forever. On December 5, 2000 in the midst of all the chaos, the slamming of the judge’s gavel in the Impeachment Trial, Mayor Ernesto T. Tijing slipped to Manila to witness the signing of the city charter by then embattled president, Joseph Ejercito Estrada. It was a most fateful day for all the Bayawanons. The signing became the denouement of an exciting story that we had religiously been following. Mayor Tijing then, called the Local Government Unit to prepare the necessary papers especially that the COMELEC had set the plebiscite to December 23, 2000.

With only two weeks to prepare, everybody in the unit did their thing to the campaign soiree. The LGU bought airtime over the radio to disseminate information especially those in the hinter barangays why we should embark on a city hood status. Line ads on cable television were placed to further drum into the consciousness of the constituents this important milestone that will entirely change the face of Bayawan.

Streamers and banners endorsing the "Vote Yes for City hood" hanged in all corners of the town. And on December 23, 2000 the Plebiscite was staged.

During the 104th Commemoration of Dr. Jose Rizal’s Martyrdom in Bagumbayan, December 30, 2000, in a simple yet memorable ceremony, the incumbent Municipal Officials were sworn into office by Judge Rogaciano Rivera as the set of Bayawan City Officials.

Bayawan now looks forward to the challenge of the future with greater determination and zest. With its new status, she opens her door to welcome investors that will boost her economic growth. The opening of communication system like the Philippine Long Distance Telephone , Inc., Cruz Telephone Company, Smart Cell Phone, the internet provided access to Bayawan to be inter-connected with the rest of the world. The installation of two Cable Television Sub-stations and the Manila Broadcasting’s DYSJ-FM radio made Bayawan abreast and well-informed with the latest and current news and issues affecting the daily grind of the Filipino’s life not only on the national and local front but also internationally. Bayawan now joins the race of the rest of the modern and the modernized city of the country. Predictably, Bayawan now becomes the gateway of commerce and will eventually become the seat of business hub in the south. The city hood status she achieved will entirely change the bucolic scenario of the growing and developing municipality into a bustling metropolis in the years to come.

Barangay's power and authority: A must read for all barangay officials


This is the "Barangay Code of the Philippines".

Barangay anim 4500.gif
A Barangay Clearance is NEEDED in order to get a Business License.
So why is the barangay name not in most business addresses?
Ask your Barangay Captain/Chairman to create a Resolution to make it mandatory to put the barangay name in all Business addresses.
Every Government Unit in the Philippines is within a Barangay. The municipal hall, city hall, the provincial capitol building, and even the Malacañang Palace where the president resides is within a Barangay.

The barangay has power and authority over its domain. The improvement of the barangay rests on the barangay officials. The barangay chairman, the barangay council and the local businessmen forge the prosperity of the barangay. Not the president of the Philippines, senate, nor congress. Not the governor of the province, not the mayor nor council of the municipality or city. Poor barangays stay poor because of weak and/or ignorant(uninformed) barangay leaders.

When roads or any infrastructure need to be built, improved or repaired, all the barangay officials have to do is make a resolution and present it to the city or municipality council. The resolution will force the city/municipal council or responsible government office to hear the legitimate demands. "The squeaky wheel gets the grease."

Each city or municipality is represented by the "barangay association or federation". The elected president of the Association of Barangay Council and the President of Kabataan (SK) association each have a seat in the City/Municipality council. Their powers are the same and equal to the elected city/municipality councilors. They are there to help lobby the demands of the barangays. They are not there just to collect a big salary and rub elbows with the regular elected city/municipality council, but to also represent the needs of the barangays.
The duties of the barangay officials are specifically written in Chapter III(Punong Barangay) and Chapter IV (The Sangguniang Barangay). Read it..

Practically anything that has to do with the barangay, the barangay officials have a say on it and most likely the authority over it. The majority of the barangay officials are not aware of their duties and power. They depend on the city council or mayor. The elected barangay officials are afraid of the mayor and city/municipality's "Sangguniang Panlungsod". They are in fear of being ousted or removed from office. The truth is, the "Sangguniang Panlungsod" does not have the power to remove or suspend any elected barangay officials from office. Only the COURT OF LAW can do this (judicial branch of the government). Elected public officials can't be suspended by the DILG or the office of the president unless an official complaint has been filed, there must be proof and there must be due process. Republic Act 7160 chapter 4, Section 60. Information is power. Be informed. Do not be intimidated by the president, senator, congressman, governor, mayor, vice-mayor, or councilors. Do your job.

The control of traffic is not up to the city council or chief of police. It is controlled by the barangay. If the barangay needs traffic enforcers, the barangay can make a resolution to demand it from the city or municipality council. When the electric coop or the water district do not maintain their lines, the barangay can directly demand for the maintenance from the utility companies. No need to wait for city council.

The citizens also has the power to make demands to the barangay officials. In case the officials get blinded. Simply file an official complaint with the barangay secretary naming the Punong barangay as the respondent representing the barangay.

If the power lines are sagging, don't go to the power company, go to the barangay office. Ask the barangay for a DEMAND resolution against the power company.
If the water lines are busted, don't wait for the water company, go to the barangay office. Ask the barangay for a DEMAND resolution against the water company.
If the potholes in the road are not fixed, don't wait for the The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH), go to the barangay office. Ask the barangay for a DEMAND resolution against the DPWH.
Are you beginning to get the point?

Cleaning the shorelines, drainage systems, streets, rivers, and parks within your barangay is YOUR responsibility. You are accountable for this. It is not the responsibility of the City/Municipality officials. The citizens and officials of the barangay are responsible. Stop blaming others.

  • BUDGET: As far as the preparation for the budget expenditures, it starts at the barangay level, then moves on to cities, municipalities, provinces and regions. The barangays need to exercise their authority. They need to put their yearly budget together for their administration and future projects. The majority of the barangays leave this job to the municipality and city. This is so wrong. Then when the budget doesn't come or is lacking, they complain.
  • The budget for the barangays does go to the City or Municipality, but simply for holding and later distribution. The city or municipality DOES NOT approve the budget. It was already approved by congress. The city or municipality simply "distributes" the approved budget.
  • The bureau of internal revenue is in cahoots to subdue the barangays, municipalities and provinces. They call the rightful shares to the taxes collected as "Internal Revenue Allotment Dependency". It is not a dependency. It is the lawful and rightful share of the LGU as specified in "TITLE III, SHARES OF LOCAL GOVERNMENT UNITS IN THE PROCEEDS OF NATIONAL TAXES, CHAPTER I, Allotment of Internal Revenue Taxes, Section 284."
  • "IMPERIAL MANILA IS A MYTH!", it does not exist anymore. The Philippine budget formulation system is not centralized. "Budgetary planning has been DECENTRALIZED since 1991". It is the responsibility of each LGU to submit their budgetary needs for review. Failure to submit is the problem.
  • DURING ELECTIONS: Where do City and Municipality politicians go to campaign? They seek the support of the Barangay officials. They plead to the barangay folks for the votes. Even the candidate for president. But after the election they ignore you. Do not ever forget the power of the barangay.

Ignorance keeps the pinoys thinking that Manila rules. Be informed, be educated and make your barangay prosper.

  • Absolutely NO need for FEDERALISM. It is a ploy to give the Bangsamoro an Islamic State where the religion of Islam is financed by the Philippine government. Bangsamoro will be a HOMELAND not for all Filipinos but for only the Muslim Filipinos. It violates the constitution's "separation of church and state". Religion is always good for the people but it should never be embraced or financed by government. Tax exemption is not tantamount to financing. Every non-profit organization is tax-exempt.

Natural Resources of Bayawan City, Negros Oriental, Philippines

Protect the environment

It is sad but true that as of the year 2012 the rivers of the Philippines continue to be the #1 Sewer Systems of the Philippines.

Protect & Save the Rivers. Do not let your sewer drain into the river. Your community can be the first to initiate this project.
Build your riverbank protection with a built-in gutter system. Reforest within Ten Years - Guaranteed!

Let us plant more trees in every barangay in the entire Philippines. It does not make any difference if the barangay is urban, partially urban or rural; we need more trees. Trees will prevent erosion, provide oxygen, prevent green house effect, and even a place of business for the shade tree mechanic.

The Philippines is a tropical country and practically anything will grow. The DENR has the planting trees project that goes on every year. Lots of picture taking for the media. Planting trees one by one is the "human" way of doing it. This individual planting of trees is good if done to "line" the roads and highways with trees or along fences or property divisions, or if you have a plantation.

To reforest the nation of the Philippines we have to plant trees the "mother nature" way. Sow the seeds during the rainy season. Go deep into "bald" forests and plant trees by sowing seeds. If there's not enough volunteers to do this, use the military helicopters to fly over the designated areas and sow the seeds.

Guaranteed within a few years, The Philippines will be lush again. >>Read More

We are using our rivers as our sewer system. If you ask a Filipino, "Are the Filipinos a clean people?" The answer is an automatic, "Yes!". However, the Filipinos are suffering from the same disease or attitude as most people do, and that is the "NIMBY" disease or "NIMBY" attitude. (NIMBY) Not In My Back Yard. So it is OK to dump my garbage and sewer there. Not mine! Someone else will take care of it.

This attitude is killing our rivers. Your great-grandparents, grandparents or parents were once proud to tell the stories of how they enjoyed swimming in the river behind your house or nearby. However, you can't say the same or tell the same stories to your kids or grand kids. Why? Because your generation is killing the river.

We have so much water in the Philippines and yet very little to drink.

Instead of relying too much on Diesel fuel and Coal to generate the majority of Philippine's Electrical energy Supply, we can concentrate more on renewable and sustainable source of energy such as: Hydro Power, Solar Power, and Wind Power and thermal energy conversion. We have too many black outs.
