CHAPTER 1
HISTORY OF TACLOBAN CITY
ITS BEGINNINGS
Tacloban City was formerly known as Kankabatok, named after the first
settler Kabatok who occupied the area around the present Sto. Nio Church.
Other inhabitants who came later were Gumoda, Haranging and Huraw who
settled then in nearby areas. The Kanhuraw Hill where the City Hall is
presently situated was formerly Huraws domain. The whole settlement area
was called Kankabatok, meaning Kabatoks property.
Kankabatok was formerly under the political administration of Palo but
under the parochial jurisdiction of Basey, Samar. The Augustinian Mission
discovered Kankabatok in 1770 and subsequently, the Franciscans came
later in 1813. During this period, Kankabatok was renamed "Tarakluban"
which means the place where the inhabitants use the Taklub, a bamboo
contraption, to catch crabs, shrimps and fish. Later, the name of the place
evolved from "Tarakluban" to its present name, Tacloban.
Although no official records show, it is commonly believed that
Tacloban was officially proclaimed a municipality in 1770, after the provinces
in Leyte and Samar were separated in 1768. Since then Tacloban became a
trading point between the two provinces because of its strategic location. On
February 26, 1830, Tacloban became the capital of Leyte because of the ideal
location of its port which is well sheltered and had adequate facilities.
BEFORE AND DURING THE WAR
Colonel Murray arrived in Tacloban in 1901 and became the first
Military Governor of Leyte. He opened the Tacloban port to world commerce,
especially for copra and abaca, which were exported in large quantities.
Before World War II, Tacloban was the center of commerce, education, social
and cultural activities in Leyte. The educational institutions were: Leyte
Normal School, now the Leyte Normal University; Leyte High School now
known as the Leyte National High School; Leyte Trade School which today is
the Eastern Visayas State College; Holy Infant Academy, which is now Holy
Infant College and the Tacloban Catholic Institute.
On May 25, 1942, Japanese Forces landed in Tacloban and started a
three-year Japanese occupation of Leyte. The Japanese forces fortified
Tacloban, improved its airfield and established San Pedro Bay as a port of
call and entry for the Japanese Imperial Naval Forces. During the Japanese

Tacloban City Ecological Profile 2009

City Planning and Development Office

occupation, many guerilla forces were organized and the most famous was
the group of Colonel Ruperto Kangleon.
As the people of Tacloban and those from other municipalities in Leyte
and Samar fought for their freedom, there was always a complement of brave
men and women for the cause and together, as they made alliances with the
movement, helping in any way they could, they were aware that the day will
come when tyranny will be vanquished by the Allied Forces.
On October 20, 1944, General Douglas MacArthur and his troops
landed on the Tacloban-Palo beaches (White Beach and Red Beach) and in
the neighboring town of Dulag (Blue Beach) and liberated Leyte from the
Japanese Forces. October 23, 1944, General MacArthur, accompanied by
President Sergio Osmea made Tacloban the temporary seat and temporary
capital of the Commonwealth Government until final liberation of the country.
Famous landmarks during the liberation were the Joseph Price Mansion
where General MacArthur set up his headquarters and the Redoa
Residence. Then the provincial government of Leyte and the municipal
government of Tacloban were re-established. Atty. Paulo Jaro was the
Liberation Mayor of Tacloban and Mr. Epifanio Aguirre was the first mayor
upon the inauguration of the Philippine Republic.
FROM A MUNICIPALITY TO A COMPONENT CAPITAL CITY
The Municipality of Tacloban was now a booming locality as it became
the center of trade and industry owing to its strategic location. Traders and
businessmen opened their respective businesses in the municipality as
Tacloban evolved to become an economic potential for commerce.
On June 20, 1952, Tacloban was proclaimed a chartered city by virtue
of Republic Act No. 760 which took effect on June 12, 1953. The charter was
signed by President Elpidio Quirino and witnessed by then incumbent Mayor,
Ildefonso Cinco, who apparently became the first City Mayor.
On June 30, 1954, on the Feast Day of Sr. Sto. Nio, the Patron Saint
of Tacloban, Speaker of the House of Representatives Jose B. Laurel did the
honor of laying the cornerstone for the Tacloban City Hall at Kanhuraw Hill.
As a new city, Tacloban attracted businessmen looking for sound investment
prospects while people from neighboring towns slowly began to look for
opportunities and laid roots in the city.
Artemio E. Mate, the second City Mayor of Tacloban City succeeded
Hon. Ildefonso Cinco who became Governor of the Province of Leyte. The
decade of the 60's ushered new developments, with the First Lady Imelda
Romualdez Marcos who hails from the Province of Leyte.
During the late 60's and the early 70's Tacloban City was gradually
changing from a less obvious to a remarkable city. Government institutions
and cultural awareness were created and established such as the National
3

Tacloban City Ecological Profile 2009

City Planning and Development Office

Maritime Polytechnic, UP Tacloban, Sto. Nio Shrine and the People's Center
and Library and others were established in the City. All these, were in
addition to the construction of the San Juanico Bridge, the longest span of
bridge in the Philippines linking the islands of Leyte and Samar.
Spontaneously, the construction of the Maharlika Highway, the improvement
of the DZR Airport and the Tacloban Sea Port and many other infrastructure
projects promoted Tacloban City to the business sector and to the national
and foreign investors.
On September 24, 1972, Tacloban became a part of the Integrated
Reorganization Plan by virtue of Presidential Decree No. 1 of the New Society
under Proclamation 1081 declaring Martial Law in the Philippines. During the
time, Mayor Filomeno Arteche was the incumbent mayor
On May 12, 1976, President Marcos appointed Obdulia R. Cinco as
Mayor of Tacloban City and was returned to the seat when she won in the
local elections on January 30, 1980 becoming the first elected lady mayor of
Tacloban City.
AFTERMATH OF THE EDSA REVOLUTION
In 1986, after Corazon Aquino was placed into the presidency by the
EDSA Revolution, Mayor Cinco was replaced by Emmanuel K. Veloso who
stayed until the elections of 1988. This time, another Mate was elected as
Mayor. The younger brother of former mayor and Congressman Artemio E.
Mate, Uldarico E. Mate won the elections and became the first elected mayor
after the EDSA Revolution.
Mayor Uldarico E. Mate was given a mandate of three terms as mayor
of Tacloban City. During his term, Tacloban evolved in terms of economic,
social and infrastructure development as Tacloban was categorized as a First
Class City. The business sector's confidence in the economic standing of the
city boosted its prospects and local and international entrepreneurs became
interested to put up businesses in the city.
TACLOBAN CITY IN THE PRESENT
In the mid portion of the 90's, Tacloban City worked out for the
acquisition of 237 hectares of land for its Economic Zone, which was finally
realized and approved by the Philippine Economic Zone Authority by virtue of
Presidential Proclamation No. 1210 on April 23, 1998. The Eastern Visayas
Agro-Industrial Growth Center (EVRGC) was then officially registered as an
Eco-Zone with the City Government of Tacloban as the developer/operator.
On June 30, 1998, where the last term of Mayor Mate ended, it began
for Mayor Alfredo T. Romualdez. June 12, 2003, was a golden day for
Tacloban City as it celebrated its Golden Anniversary with fitting rites and
activities with Mayor Alfredo T. Romualdez at its helm. Celebrating the 50th
4

Tacloban City Ecological Profile 2009

City Planning and Development Office

anniversary of Tacloban's cityhood showed the long trail of significant


activities leading to the present status of Tacloban by which economic,
infrastructural and social gains were achieved.
Mayor Alfredo T. Romualdez was given a three term mandate by the
people of Tacloban. Before ending his term on June 30, 2007, his son, Alfred
S. Romualdez won in the mayoralty race during the May, 2007 elections
where the son would obviously succeed the father to continue the vision that
the older Romualdez have for Tacloban City and the goal to make it a Highly
Urbanized City.
Treading in the path of the former Mayor Alfredo Romualdez, the
incumbent Mayor Alfred S. Romualdez prepared Tacloban City for its
conversion from a component city to a highly urbanized city. On October 15,
2008, President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo declared Tacloban City a Highly
Urbanized City by virtue of Presidential Proclamation No. 1637 which was
ratified by a unanimous Yes vote on December 18, 2008, officially converting
Tacloban from a component city to a highly urbanized city.
Tacloban City has now emerged from its dependency from the
Province of Leyte. From its modest beginnings, Tacloban City has grown to
be the premier city of Eastern Visayas, gateway of the region and the center
of commerce, trade and industry, education, and communication and
technology. Now, as a Highly Urbanized City, economic opportunities for its
people and the nearby municipalities will eventually flow unhampered. By the
grace of the Lord Almighty, Tacloban City will achieve more and will continue
to grow in terms of physical, economic and social upturn and will leave no
stone unturned to deliver the best service to its people and govern them in the
most practical, humane and equitable manner.
As growth is always accompanied by pain, there is always the gain to
look forward to and in the process; it will always be sweet in the end.
Tacloban will no longer be the same and there is no looking back only
forward stance towards a bright future for the city and its people.

CHAPTER 2
GEO-PHYSICAL ENVIRONMENT
2.1 GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION AND AREA
Tacloban City is located in the northeastern part of the Island of Leyte,
one of the islands in Eastern Visayas or Region 8. It lays 11 degrees 14
38.19 north latitude and 125 degrees 0 18.24 East longitude and is situated
about 580 kilometers southwest of Manila.
Tacloban's original land area was 10,297.29 hectares. A survey in
1977 by the Bureau of Lands disclosed that a certain portion of the
municipality of Babatngon was actually a part of Tacloban City. Barangay
Sta. Elena in the northern part of Tacloban City which is adjacent to the
Municipality of Babatngon increased the land area by 556 hectares. In 2004,
the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR-LMB)
disclosed that the total land area of Tacloban, as submitted in Resolution No.
99-001 and reiterated under Circular Letter No. 2001-21, is recorded at
20,172 hectares or 201.72 sq. km. that included the small islands within the
territorial bounds of the city.
2.2 LAND CLASSIFICATION

Lands classified as Alienable & Disposable are subject of review under


the Comprehensive Land Use Plan of Tacloban City.
2.3 CLIMATE
Climate in the city is classified by Tacloban PAGASA as falling
between the boundary of Type II and Type IV which indicates that there is no
dry season and no pronounced period for maximum rainfall which normally
runs from July to December, but that rainfall is more or less evenly distributed
throughout the year except on adverse periods where there is La Nia or El
Nio.

2.4 TOPOGRAPHY
Tacloban Citys mean elevation is 3.05 meters above sea level. In the
western vicinity, along Naga-naga mountain range has a steep slope of 40%
with a highest elevation of 305 meters. On the Northern part, the Sta. Elena
mountain range has a steeper slope of 60.5% with the highest elevation of
575 meters. These ranges serve as the boundary between Tacloban and its
adjacent municipalities such as Palo, Sta. Fe, Alang-Alang, San Miguel and
Babatngon. While on the northeastern portion of the city proper, Kanhuraw
Hill, seat of the Local Government of Tacloban, has an elevation of 15.09
meters above mean sea level, lies as a landmark overlooking Cancabato Bay.

2.6 GEOLOGY
The geologic data of Tacloban City is obtained from the Bureau of
Mines and Geosciences gathered by CPDO personnel.
Four rock formation units can be found within the immediate area of
Tacloban City and its nearby towns. These are: the Quaternary Alluvium
(1.6 mya to present); the Turbidite (successively layered rocks) sequence of
Bagahupi Formation, which is Pliocene (0.01 to 1.6 mya) in age; the San
Ricardo Formation, which is Early to Middle Miocene (11 to 23 mya) in age;
and the Tacloban Ophiolite (Balce, C., 1997, pers. Comm..), which
encompasses the successive sequence of Schists, Volcanic, Serpentine and
Gabbroic rocks all thought to be of Cretaceous (65 to 135 mya) in age.
The Tacloban Ophiolite is represented by the long stretch of small
mountain chains located west of Tacloban, which extends in a northwestsoutheast manner. Limited observations of igneous rock exposures at
Salvacion and Tigbao suggest basaltic origin of the rocks found in the areas
mentioned. The northern portions of Tacloban, specifically those located at
the rolling hills, are underlain by the slightly dipping Bagahupi sedimentary
sequence, which has some outcrop exposures at road cuts of hilly portions
and along the shoreline of Tagpuro facing the San Juanico Strait. Exposures
are also present at the protruding headland at Anibong Bay where three fuel
depots are located.
The Tacloban City proper is underlain by the Sedimentary sequence of
the San Ricardo Formation, which is very slightly dipping. This can be
observed at the Kanhuraw Hill which is characteristically rising within a
generally lowland area.
The Quaternary Alluvium overlies most of the older rock units in
different areas and it consists of recent soil deposits and sands, which can be
loose or compacted. The coastal areas and plains are covered by this kind of
rock unit, like those found along the bounding bodies of water. The Tacloban
Airport at San Jose is in itself underlain by compacted young sand deposits,
which form a characteristic sandspit structure (a coastal feature which
denotes a protruding sand body towards the sea and is attached to the
mainland). Many places are underlain by the compacted sands and soils,
such as those at San Jose and places southwest of Tacloban City proper.
Two minor fault lines have been previously mapped out in the
immediate area of Tacloban. One is located at the western flank of the
mountain chains west of Tacloban, while the other exists at the northern area,
which serves as the boundary between the Tacloban Ophiolite and the
Bagahupi formation. These faults are identified as thrust faults and are
possibly inactive, but detailed studies and data regarding the actual nature of
these two geologic structures are non-existent. The potential of these
structures as earthquake generators cannot be discounted at the moment.

Tacloban City has deposits of metallic and non-metallic mineral


resources. Metallic deposits consist of copper and iron. Non metallic
minerals are comprised of red-burning clay which is used for producing bricks
and pottery and chert dimension stone used as interior and exterior building
materials.
2.7 NATURAL DRAINAGE SYSTEM
The urban area of Tacloban City has four major natural drainage ways
namely; Abucay and Mangonbangon rivers which empties to Anibong bay,
while Tanghas-Lirang and Burayan rivers empties to Cancabato Bay.
Likewise, these urban natural drainage ways, Abucay, Mangonbangon and
Burayan Rivers serve as urban drainage channels
Likewise, the city has four bodies of water serving as drainage outlets
of these rivers and creeks. These bodies of water are Anibong and Panalaron
Bays situated in the North, and Cancabato, San Pedro and San Pablo Bays
situated in the East. The other smaller natural drainage ways located at the
northwestern part of Tacloban, drain the watershed areas of the city such as
those found in Barangays Camansihay, Bagacay, Cabalawan, Sto. Nio, San
Roque and Tigbao towards the San Juanico Strait and Anibong Bay.
The Abucay river, located at the northwestern side of the citys
watershed area was previously tapped for irrigation of the farm lands in
barangays Abucay and Naga-Naga. It has a catchment area of about 2.4
square kilometers and drains to the Anibong Bay. Mangonbangon River runs
5 kilometers along the western side of the City proper and carries part of the
Citys runoff, storm water and drains towards Panalaron Bay. The upper
stretch of the national highway is swampy. Its catchment area is around 5
square kilometers. Burayan River with a total length of 4 kilometers, has a
catchment area of 6.5 square kilometers, flowing from southwest to northeast
on the southern part of Tacloban.
The mountainous area serving as the watershed is located west of the
City. A small hilly area partitions the Tacloban citys central plain. The
eastern plain occupies the Taclobans Central Business District and the other
half on the western side starts to be developed into a mixed residential and
commercial use.
2.8 WATER RESOURCES
The water supply of the City primarily comes from the Leyte
Metropolitan Water District (LMWD) which is the sole water distributor serving
the areas of San Jose, Marasbaras, Caibaan, V & G Subdivision, Janssen
Heights, Calanipawan, Sagkahan, City Proper up to Barangay Diit along the
National Highway. The water supply source is surface water from the creeks
and rivers located outside of the city area. As of 2006, approximately 30,000
cubic meter of potable water was delivered to the LMWD service area on a
daily

18

Tacloban City Ecological Profile 2009

City Planning and Development Office

19

Tacloban City Ecological Profile 2009

City Planning and Development Office

basis. Moreover, Tacloban City, with 19,499 water connections accounts to


70.68% of the total water connections of LMWD in Leyte.
Hand pumps and wells were observed at barangays Tigbao, San
Roque, Diit, Bagacay, Camansihay, Tagpuro, New and Old Kawayan, and
San Jose. Water discharged from these sources is clean and is encouraging
although no measurements have been done to quantitatively determine the
flow of water. However, there are reports that the water flowing from deep
wells close to the coastal areas show signs of salinity which could mean
saltwater intrusion into the aquifers. Nevertheless, this shows that sub-surface
water is being utilized as drinking water in certain places of the city despite
the absence of technical studies.
2.9 POTENTIAL HAZARDS
2.9.1 Earthquake Related
Tacloban City is generally close to the active Philippine Fault Zone
(PFZ), the high angle fault line that runs through the middle of Leyte Island.
The PFZ is a major earthquake generator and may have been the immediate
source of earthquakes that has affected Tacloban City in the past. The
Philippine Trench (PT), which is located at the eastern coast of Samar but
quite far from Tacloban, can also be an earthquake generator on a lesser
degree than that of the PFZ.
The two minor thrust faults immediately located near Tacloban City
may or may not pose a direct threat to the City itself. This is because of the
nature of activity of these geological structures may not have been completely
established, as to whether the faults are still active or not. Previous reports
inferred that these structures have been inactive for quite sometime, but
recent studies will help in confirming this problem (Balce, C., pers. Comm..,
1997).
Most of the city areas are underlain by igneous rocks represented by
the Tacloban Ophiolite, especially in elevated areas like Salvacion and
Tigbao. Settlements and structures located over these areas are less
susceptible to ground shaking because igneous rocks generally provide better
foundation for infrastructures.
Areas that are underlain by loosely stratified sedimentary rock units
and recent alluvial and sand deposits are more susceptible to ground shaking.
The presence of weak planar contact between the different beds of
sedimentary rocks, as well as their lower density as compared to igneous
rocks, allow for an increased effect of ground shaking. The stronger shaking is
more prevalent on thick and poorly stratified alluvial soils and poorly
compacted or constantly wet sands because these sediments are loose
enough to be re-mobilized during ground shaking.

20

Tacloban City Ecological Profile 2009

City Planning and Development Office

Areas wherein these conditions allow for a strong, ground shaking


potential are the areas underlain by all the sedimentary rock units and recent
alluvial and sand deposits. Most of these areas are located along the rolling to
low-lying coastal areas of the city such as the city proper, San Jose and the
Airport area, the low-lying areas southeast of the city proper, and narrow lowlying portions along the coast facing San Juanico Strait.
Liquefaction of the ground is also associated with this ground shaking
motion. This process usually happens in regions that are underlain by loose or
compacted and/or wet sands, and poorly consolidated, compact or loose
alluvial sediments. Tacloban City had been identified as one of the places in
the Philippines with a strong potential for liquefaction (Torres, et.al., 1994)
The location of the Airport in San Jose, which is southeast of Tacloban City
proper is susceptible to this kind of hazard.
Proper foundation, structural and soil engineering measures can be
applied for built structures in areas, that are prone to both ground-shaking and
liquefaction hazards. The basement bedrocks that can be stable and can
withstand the effects of earthquakes may not be too deep to reach for laying
foundation to large-scale, high density structures.
Undertaking a detailed geological and geotechnical studies in the area
will be of great importance as this will help in understanding the mechanics of
the immediate geological structures, as well as the geotechnical properties of
the rocks and sediments. All of these measures will greatly minimize the
adverse effects of earthquake-related hazards in prone areas.
2.9.2 Coastal and Slope Erosion Potential
Coastal erosion does not seem to be a problem along the coasts of the
inner bodies of water. Deposition is otherwise the dominant coastal process
occurring in these areas, which is shown by observable situation at the
smaller bays. This may have been caused by the high amount of sediments
being unloaded by the rivers draining into these waters bodies. The water
currents are not too strong to cause any erosional processes along the shore.
The shoreline along the San Pedro and San Pablo Bay, on the other
hand, may have some coastal erosion potential. Although the dominant
coastal process at this area is the deposition of sediment particles, such as
sand brought about by longshore currents (sea current which moves in a
direction along the shoreline, instead of a head-on current directed towards
the coast) from the sandy beaches south of Tacloban, a disturbance in the
sources of these sediments can reverse the depositional process into an
erosional one. The shoreline of San Jose generally experiences minor coastal
erosion but the loss of sand is being balanced by the deposition of sediments
coming from the south. The disturbance to sediment supply can be caused by
the construction of coastal structures at the municipalities south of Tacloban
which is beyond its territorial area.

21

Tacloban City Ecological Profile 2009

City Planning and Development Office

22

Tacloban City Ecological Profile 2009

City Planning and Development Office

Protection of these coastal areas from possible erosion will call for the
involvement of the other coastal municipalities which lie along the shoreline of
San Pedro Bay. An integrated coastal management program involving the
concerned municipalities will have to be conceived and implemented in order
to address these concerns. Any development of coastal structures must be
evaluated in terms of their positive and negative impacts to the coastal
environment.
Slope erosion caused by heavy surface runoff during strong rains often
occur in elevated areas with considerable steepness of slopes and covered
with unconsolidated or loose rocks and alluvium. This can also occur in places
where heavy surface runoff occurs and natural vegetative cover is scarce or
absent, such as denuded hills covered with cogon grass instead of trees.
These conditions cause landslide-prone areas are mostly located at the midsection towards the southern portion of the Western mountain and hilly chains
of Tacloban, especially in slopes with minimal vegetative cover. The northern
section of this mountainous chain also has some slope erosion potential, but
these can be more related to earthquake-generated landslides rather than
those caused by surface water run-off.
Revegetation of the denuded, steep-slope areas can be an effective
measure to limit slope erosion and landslides in vulnerable areas. Engineering
measures, when possible, such as slope stabilization, can be applied in
landslide-prone areas where major infrastructures, such as national roads, are
located. Knowledge of these areas is also important in guiding the location
and development of new infrastructure.
2.9.3 Flood Prone Areas
Low-lying Areas are particularly susceptible to flooding. This problem is
aggravated by inadequate drainage facilities, encroachment on drainage
ways, clogging of drainage systems and removal of vegetation in the
watersheds.
Low areas along the open coast are susceptible to storm
surges. Storm surges occur during the very strong typhoons with strong winds
and heavy downpour, and sometimes even during strong monsoons. Storm
surges that affected Tacloban City in the past have been documented. This
means that this potential hazard still exists (Gonzales, 1994).
The low-lying areas that are prone to flooding are the lowland plains
southwest of the City proper, which include portions of Apitong, Sagkahan,
Caibaan, Calanipawan, all of Marasbaras and San Jose, portions of Tigbao,
Diit, Cabalawan, San Isidro, Tagpuro, Old Kawayan, New Kawayan and
Tacloban City (Figure 7). The coastal areas that are particularly susceptible to
storm surges are the coastal barangays of San Jose, Marasbaras and
Tacloban City proper. Their proximity to deeper and open waters (especially
San Jose which is facing the San Pedro Bay), qualifies these places as a
surge prone area, especially during typhoons and strong monsoons. The
coastal areas along the San Juanico Strait have a low surge potential as
these places normally have relatively calm waters and are next to a small
body of water.

HOUSEHOLD POPULATION
DISTRIBUTION

BY

AGE

GROUP

AND

SEX

Tacloban Citys total household population in the 2000 census was


recorded at 177,602. The economically active or the working age (15-59
years old) represents the largest share of population which is about 57
percent of the household population. The next largest age group is the child
and youth group in the age bracket 1 year to 14 years old representing 34
percent of the total household population while those aged 60 and above is 5
percent of the total household population. The least represented age group
zero to less than one year is about 4 percent of the total household
population. Overall, there is female plurality in practically most of the age
brackets except for those under 1 year up to age 4 where there are more
males to females by only about 7.18 percent and age brackets 40-49 where
males dominate by only about 0.16 percent. In totality, there are more
females to males up to old age by 2.13 percent of the total 2000 household
population but considering the minuscule gap, male and female seems to be
in an even keel in terms of populating the city of Tacloban.

3.5 MIGRATION PATTERN BY SEX


Tacloban Citys migration pattern from 1970 to 2000 has showed a net
migration rate of 7 percent as shown by the figures of the National Statistics
Office. The net migration rate has tended towards out-migration considering
the various reasons and motivations of the Taclobanons. Although the data is
not inclusive of the present upward population trend, it still shows that some
residents go out of the city either temporarily or permanently but a certain
percentage of in-migrating population balances the migration trend in the city.
In the total migration pattern, there are more women to men migrants.
In the in-migration trend, there is a total of 10,046 migrants 5,278 are female
and 4,768 are male. While in out-migration, a total of 22,581 residents
resettled in other places, women accounting for 11,548 of the total figure while
men numbered 11,033. In Table 3.4, a summarized migration pattern of the
1970-2000 censuses rationalized the pattern for those who leave the city for
the bigger cities or outside the country for economic purposes such as
practice of profession, business or educational purposes. While there were
in-migration activities, the purpose was somewhat similar as most have
32

Tacloban City Ecological Profile 2009

City Planning and Development Office

migrated to Tacloban City to look for work or relocate businesses considering


the fast paced economic activities of the newly categorized highly urbanized
city of Tacloban (HUC). Inter-marriages also played a part in the trend. As
the city is gearing up for more economic prospects and investments as a
newly categorized HUC, it is expected that migration trend may turn from outmigration to in-migration seeing an increased positive population growth rate
in the 2007 census and the economic opportunities and speculations offered
by the various economic opportunities of a highly urbanized city.

3.5 HOUSEHOLD DISTRIBUTION


In the 2007 census, Tacloban City has a total population of 217,199
and is projected to reach 223,129 in 2008. Considering there is no available
data for the household population and other disaggregated demographic data
of the 2007 census, the 2008 population distribution per barangay used the
same percentile distribution with the 2000 census so it is the same with that of
the 2000 data where the number has increased proportionately with its
projection rate.
In the 2000 census, household population is over 99 percent of the
total population because of the institutional population in the urban barangays.
But most of the barangays, particularly rural barangays, have the same
household population and total population which mean all their residents are
members of the households.
3.6 TEMPO OF URBANIZATION
Taking into account the 2000 and 2007 actual census, it reflected that
in the seven year span, the urban population grew by 19 percent while the
rural population ballooned by 42.5 percent. Evenly dividing this increase in
seven years, the increase would be roughly 2.71% in the urban barangays
and 6.07% in the rural barangays annually. This is a proof that urbanization is
moving towards the rural barangays as their respective populations increase
each year by more than 4 percent against the urban barangays. It is
postulated that constituents are looking towards the rural barangays for
residential purposes as the urban barangays gear for increased
commercialization and industry as Tacloban City is now a highly urbanized
city.

3.8 PRESENT STATUS OF WELL BEING


One of the priorities of the City Government of Tacloban is the wellbeing of its constituents and to bring this into motion, several activities related
to the general health and welfare of the residents were conceived in
partnership with the private sector and other government agencies. This
could be quantified in the succeeding graphs and profile in the health, social
services,
peace matters, housing, education and other sub-sectors
contributing to the general well being and welfare of the Taclobanons.
Taclobans constituents enjoy a great deal of health package being delivered
to them through the regular conduct of Barangayans where most of the
basic services are availed of for free such as medical and dental
consultations, medicines, child registration, personal hygiene demonstrations
and other such services which people usually get from the city government.
3.8.1 Health
Tacloban City has sufficient health care facilities both private and
public. In the government sector, there is the Eastern Visayas Regional
Medical Center, a fully equipped hospital providing better medical attention
not only for the city but the whole region eight. Augmenting this is the
Tacloban City Hospital to cater to those residents who cannot afford to go to
private hospitals. Three more private hospitals are ready to fulfill the health
and medical needs of the Taclobanons and these are the Divine Word
Hospital, Bethany Hospital and Remedios Trinidad Romualdez (RTR) Hospital
and a fourth maternity hospital, Caremed Maternity Hospital. Two new private
hospitals are being constructed, the Holy Infant Sisters of Mercy Hospital and
Tacloban Doctors Medical Center. This will assure the people of Tacloban
more health services and medical care.

The ten leading causes of morbidity as shown in the following table
provides us with the various diseases/ailments that are mostly diagnosed and
causes the most cases of illnesses contracted by the constituents of the city.
The number one cause of morbidity as shown in the data is the upper
respiratory tract infection from 2005 to 2007 while animal bite cases is the
tenth cause of morbidity in 2005, it has risen to number 7 in 2006 and again it
climbed down to the tenth rank in 2007. Most of the morbidity causes has
something to do with the pulmonary tract such as infection, ARI, asthma and
TB. Hypertension and vascular diseases have become alarming in the
medical scene as it rose from the ninth rank to consistently stay as the fifth
cause of morbidity for the years 2006 and 2007. This is not alarming enough
for the city since some recorded patients are actually residents of other
nearby municipalities. But considering that they have been listed, still they
were included in the statistical figures for records purposes.

c. Ten Leading Causes of Mortality


The number one leading cause of mortality from 2005 to 2007 is
Cardio-Pulmonary Arrest of unknown etiology while viral hepatitis has been
ranked the tenth and ninth cause for mortality during the years in review.
Again, these figures are not exclusive for the residents of the city because a
modest number of residents from other municipalities or provinces who were
given medical attention and died in Tacloban City were included in the
statistics. It could also be worth noting that accidents of all types is
consistently the fourth cause of death followed by TB of all forms.
The
second leading cause of mortality is CAP/pneumonia for the last 2
consecutive years in review. It is evident that most of the leading causes
have something to do directly or indirectly with cardio-pulmonary ailments.
This may be attributed to the new lifestyle of Filipinos and the food that
deviates from the old home cooked meals. Today, people have gotten used
to ready made and ready to eat fares that in turn have something to do with
the general well being of people. The City Government in turn periodically
gives symposia, pulong-pulong and the likes to give information dissemination
on health and proper nutrition during the regular conduct of Barangayans to
stir awareness among the constituents.

d. Nutritional Status
The City Government of Tacloban thru the City Nutrition Office,
conducts a regular annual weigh-in of children, to evaluate and monitor their
nutritional status which must conform with the standards set by the national
agencies of the health sector. For the year 2008, 22,088 pre-schoolers were
weighed-in and it was found out that 86.84 were in the normal range while
only about 10.51% were found to be below normal low (BNL) and less than 1
percent was found to be in the below normal very low (BLVL). The few below
normal weighed-in is very negligible as compared to the total evaluated
normal weight while about 1.70% was above normal.
To remedy the
situation, the City Government of Tacloban conducts a regular Barangayan to
give free vitamins to children, supplements and feeding. Also, parents are
given a basic orientation on proper nutrition, food preparation and basic
hygiene practices.

3.9.3 Education
Tacloban City is the center of education in Region 8 and thus, it has so
much to offer in terms of educational need of the constituents and for the
whole region in general. As recorded in the 2000 census, Tacloban Citys
literacy rate is 97.3 percent.
As of school year 2008, there are 35 private and government
institutions giving Pre-School Learning, 57 elementary schools, 23 high
schools and 19 tertiary schools. In school year 2005-2006 there were a total
of 21 private elementary schools but in school year 2007-2008, it has declined
to 17 accounting for those who transferred their location to the nearby
municipality and those whose licenses are yet to be renewed. On the other
hand, a new private high school has been opened making the total private
high school to 13.
This statistics shows that the city is not only the center of trade and
commerce but also of education wherein students from other municipalities
and provinces in the region come for their educational needs particularly in
the medical and nursing courses as an alternative low-cost but high
standards of education.

It could be noted that the school age population rate has declined in
the secondary education from 54 percent to 46.13 percent while in the
elementary level it has been stable and maintained in the 66 percent rate of
participation. Although Tacloban City has a very high literacy rate of 97.3
percent, there is a low participation rate of the school age population which is

47

Tacloban City Ecological Profile 2009

being evaluated and addressed through the various non-formal education


sessions given by the City Government in cooperation with TESDA. There is
also the proliferation of private technical and non-formal courses being
opened and offered to cater to those who do not wish to undergo formal
education but rather opt for vocational or technical courses for immediate
employment.

c. Number of Teachers in Public and Private Schools


Tacloban City has a pool of the best teachers in the region as
evidenced by the quality of education offered in the locality. As shown in the
table below, the number of private secondary teachers has declined by about
50 percent from the school year 2006-2007 to SY 2007-2008. These are due
to the relocation of some private schools to the nearby municipality, decrease
of private school enrollees and low basic salary of private school teachers.

The teacher-student ratio in government elementary and secondary


schools is stated in the normal ratio and manageable compared to other
urban localities. This means that teachers could still manage their school
room setting and be able to maintain quality of education in a non-crowded
setting because of the convenient ratio of students per teacher.

3.9.4 Housing
As a newly categorized Highly Urbanized City, Tacloban City is trying
to meet the demand for more low cost housing units. To make a positive
solution to the growing demand for housing, the city government has
liberalized the application for new housing subdivisions particularly for social
housing to make way for more low cost units. It has been noted that the
migrant dwellers from nearby municipalities and provinces has almost
doubled in last decade and that their need for housing is pronounced and
immediate.
Several residents utilized the services of various housing agencies
such as the GSIS, PAG-IBIG, NHA and other government and private banks
for their housing needs. Assistance is likewise extended by the city
government by allowing some idle lands and or agricultural lands to be
converted into residential areas to help people have their own decent dwelling
units and ease the housing problem in the city.

4.1.3 Fisheries
Fishery is one of the primary economic sectors and Tacloban City is
rich in marine products. It is one of the main natural resources of the city
aside from tikog, tigbao and bamboo. The bays encircling the city of Tacloban
extending to the bays surrounding the province is teeming with varied species
of fishes and other sea products. The table below specifically indicates the
volume and value of production in fishing grounds and fishpens. This clearly
indicates that Tacloban City has a good yield and with it comes economic
upturn and government revenue.

To ensure that the fishery sector gets the optimum in harvest and
continuously benefit from this resource, transfer of new technologies and
skills by the City Agriculturists Office and other agencies safeguards this
primary economic activity. As illustrated, the following number of Fishermen
by type operates along the bays surrounding the city. There is a modest
number of owner/cultivators, demonstrating that the fishery sector is a
thriving economic activity in the city.

4.1.4 Food Self-Sufficiency Assessment


Tacloban City is self-sufficient in fish products and other marine
products because the waters along the San Pedro, Cancabato, Panalaron
and Anibong Bays are rich in marine resources and varied fish species. Also,
the San Juanico Straight spanning its waters into nearby municipalities and
provinces is considered one of the best fishing grounds in the region.
Meanwhile, vegetable production in the city is likewise economically
flourishing because of the support extended by the City Agriculturists Office
and the Department of Agriculture. In the northern barangays, communities
and cooperatives venture into vegetable production and inter-cropping. Their
produce are often than not very sufficient. Aside from the local vegetable
products, those coming from the adjacent municipalities are likewise brought
to the Bagsakan Area of the Tacloban Supermarket. Although the city still
imports some vegetables that are not locally grown, the assessment on food
self-sufficiency is positive.
In the animal commodity and meat sector, the local supply is
inadequate and to remedy the situation, livestock and poultry products are
brought in from other provinces and regions. Also, the local supply of rice is
considered very insufficient and the city gets its rice allocation from the
nearby rice-growing municipalities, provinces and the regions in Luzon.
4.1.5 Forestry
Tacloban City has an aggregate forest area of 3,907.5495 categorized
as production forest and protection forest. Production Forest is only about 39
percent of the total forest area and the remaining part is categorized as
protected area consisting of mangroves, nipa and watershed. The table
below shows the forest areas as categorized in their specific locations.

4.2.2 Quarrying and Mining


One of the components of the secondary economic sector is quarrying
and mining. There are only 4 known quarry areas in the city and they are all
located in the northern portion of the city. Specifically, these quarry areas are
located in Brgys. Tigbao, Basper, Diit and Salvacion. Meantime, there is no
known mining activity in the city.
4.2.3 Electricity, Gas and Water
4.2.3.1 Electricity/Power
Leyte Electric Cooperative II or LEYECO II is the primary power
distribution service in the city and the neighboring towns. It has its main office
at Real Street with 2 of its 4 substations also in the city, the Sagkahan and
Abucay Sub-Stations. LEYECO II employs 141 regular employees and 62 for
special projects. Tacloban City is hundred percent illuminated even the
farthest rural barangay, Brgy. 103-A is fully energized. LEYECO II has the
capacity to illuminate and provide power needs of large companies and
institutions in the city and other nearby municipalities because LEYECO II is
categorized as an A+ Extra Large Electric Cooperative. Gearing towards
industrialization, investors can be assured of sufficient power supply for their
respective ventures. Below is a graph showing the percentage distribution of
power in the areas of coverage of LEYECO II.

The Sagkahan Substation houses two power transformers, Sagkahan I
and Sagkahan II, with a capacity rating of 10 MVA and 5 MVA respectively.
Their combined peak demand reached an average of 11,406 KW in 2008.
The average power factor was 97.87% and average load factor was 60.39%
in the previous year. This substation is operational giving out power to 3
feeders. While the Abucay Substation has a capacity rating of 20 MVA serving
part of Tacloban City and the entire municipality of Babatngon. This
substation generates power to three feeders and its peak demand reached
and average of 10,987 KW in 2008 and the average load factor was at
62.09% in the previous year.
As expected, Tacloban City will definitely attract more big companies to
follow Robinsons such as the Ayala and SM Group of Companies because of
a reliable power supply in the city which will in turn generate more
employment even with other small and medium business ventures as well as
other economic opportunities.
4.2.3.2 Gas
Three of the large oil companies in the Philippines such as Shell,
Petron and Chevron have depots in Tacloban City. Relatively, Tacloban
Citys economic growth is continuously directing an upward trend and fuel is
an important factor that will propel economic activities as we are in an era
where development is supported by power and fuel. These depots could
easily supply Tacloban City and practically the whole region for its fuel needs.
The city on the other hand has 34 gasoline refueling stations and 14 LPG and
petroleum products distributors.
4.2.3.3 Water
Water supply in the city is a little less sufficient. According to the Leyte
Metropolitan Water District, which is under the management of the Provincial
Government of Leyte, almost all areas in the city, have insufficient water
74

Tacloban City Ecological Profile 2009

City Planning and Development Office

supply because of low pressure. There are barangays in the northern part of
the city that are not serviced by LMWD. Nevertheless, the city government is
looking into some possibilities and ways to remedy or improve this basic utility
problem. Some of the concessionaires use electric pumps to get maximum
supply of water while others use deep well water pumps and/or dug wells
particularly in the northern part of the city.
According to records, water
concessionaires of the city account for about 71 percent of the total 8
municipalities serviced by LMWD. LMWDs policy of one subdivision one
meter undermines the total and actual connections in Tacloban City
considering that there are several large subdivisions in the city, one of the
largest, the V&G Subdivision has more or less 2,000 households with piped
water connections.

4.2.4 Construction
Tacloban City is booming and the construction industry is at the core of
this development. There are 95 registered building contractors and
developers in the city aside from non-registered sub-contractors who make
their legitimate living through the registered builders.
Tacloban City is
thriving and the change is evident. New buildings stand one after another and
new businesses open as a new face of Tacloban emerges. The construction
boom is expeditious and the physical change of the city is matched by the
economic layout of a healthy economic stature. The presence of 109 large
and medium hardware and construction material establishments substantiate
the present setting in the construction and infrastructure scene. Horizontal
and vertical projects are being undertaken and employment generation is in
the positive note as the city readies itself for this economic transformation.
4.3

4.3.3 Transportation and Communications


4.3.3.1

Transportation

a. Land Transport
Along with urbanization comes the increase in population and
consequently, transportation facilities will likewise bear the same trend. This
is the advent of modernization and advancement. For some, this may
constitute a problem but it is inevitable and a consequence of development.
Based on LTO records, Tacloban City and Tacloban City Extension
recorded 33,175 vehicle registrations for the year 2007. In a comparative
data of vehicle registration, the increase in volume of vehicles was not
unusual. Nevertheless, as more traffic enforcers were deployed and new
traffic plans drawn, it is anticipated that the traffic volume will not hamper the
whole transportation system in the city. For the year 2005 to 2006, there was
a 9.23 percent increase in the volume of vehicles registered. For the following
year of 2007, the increase in volume was posted at 6.60 percent only. Below
is the detailed listing of the number of vehicles registered by type from 2005

b. Sea Transport
Tacloban City has two operational seaports. Residents can go to Cebu
or Manila by sea travel. Although there is only about one trip per week, those
who wish to travel by sea can do so with the 3 shipping lines that sail to
Manila and Cebu. Also, some travelers still prefer to travel by sea when
going to the nearby municipalities or provinces such as Samar, Southern
Leyte or even to some municipalities in the Province of Leyte. Motorboats of
all sizes are docked at the wharf area side by side all through Quezon
Boulevard as passengers embark for the nearby islands, municipalities or
other island provinces. Looking at the cargo and passenger statistics in a
three year comparative value, the volume of total cargo throughput has
declined by a little more than 50% in the domestic and foreign scene. This
could be attributed to the increase in plane cargo volume which means most
shippers now prefer to use air cargo systems because it is faster and more
efficient.

5.3 IRRIGATION SYSTEM


Tacloban City has no defined or distinct irrigation system that would be
under the supervision of the National Irrigation Administration (NIA) or any
other private water irrigation system. The Abucay river, a smaller river system
located at the northwestern side of the citys watershed area, was previously
tapped for irrigation water for some agricultural lands in barangays Abucay
and Naga-Naga. Some agricultural areas planted with rice or vegetables
make use of private canals for their own use, others use private machineries
to generate water to their areas of plantation while the rest depend on
rainwater for their irrigation needs.
5.4 FLOOD CONTROL AND DRAINAGE FACILITIES
Barangays of Tacloban City situated in the low-lying area and along the
coastline experiences frequent flooding. The citys drainage and sewerage
system is to be upgraded to conform with the Master Drainage Plan of the
city. The present sewerage drains to the 4 catchment basins in the city
namely the Tanghas-Lirang Creek, Mangonbangon River, Abucay and
Burayan Rivers.
Except for the Central City Proper which is provided with a system of
drainage pipes, some built-up portions along Real Street which are drained by
pipes, open canals and culverts and bigger housing areas like V&G and
Imelda Village subdivisions where networks of drainage pipes exist, the core
area is practically unsewered. In some congested and blighted residential
areas and in some subdivision, there are shallow earth ditches that are
virtually filled-up and often times do not lead to any particular discharge point.
There is a particular concern that developers of new subdivisions do
not conform with the Master Drainage Plan of the city as the subdivision
residents are the most affected during heavy downpours. Although there are
93

Tacloban City Ecological Profile 2009

City Planning and Development Office

designated catch basins in strategic places, the proliferation of informal


settlers along riverbanks and the clogging of waterways aggravate the
situation. The existing drainage system constructed way back in 1975 is the
only structure serving the dense commercial and residential areas in the city
proper.
Tacloban Citys Master Drainage Plan has yet to be fully implemented
into the present drainage system but in the meantime, the canals and rivers
are regularly declogged and worn out drainage pipes are likewise repaired.
The increase in population parallels to the increase in garbage that clogs the
waterways and catch basins causing these habitual inundations.
5.5 WATER SUPPLY
Tacloban Citys main water supply is from the Leyte Metropolitan Water
District or LMWD, which is at present managed by the Province of Leyte. The
water source is from Tingib River of Pastrana and Dagami, Leyte. Although
Tacloban City is the biggest water concessionaire, as it has 70.68% of the
total connections as of 2008, its water supply is inadequate. This number of
connections is due to LMWDs policy of one subdivision - one meter.
Ironically, other municipalities under their service areas are sufficiently
supplied with water 24 hours a day. In the northern barangays where there is
no piped water service, people use deep wells or shallow wells for their water
needs. Others have their water supply delivered in tanks by LMWD while
some residents resort to the use of electric motor driven deep wells.
Obviously, water service in the city is controlled in most areas as there
is an unwritten schedule of providing running water in specific areas with
several gate valves strategically located in densely populated areas or
subdivisions which are regularly opened or closed.
The water supply
condition in the city is not sufficient compared to other municipalities being
serviced by LMWD but the City Government of Tacloban is trying to look for
ways to improve the situation and the possibility of having its own water
system.
5.6 ELECTRIC POWER SUPPLY
Tacloban City is lucky to have more than sufficient power supply
provided by the Leyte II Electric Cooperative or LEYECO II. It has its main
office in Real Street, Tacloban City and has three substations, two of which
are located in Tacloban City. Its total capacity of power generation is 45
mega watts, enough to supply any projected increase of power needs for the
next five years. Tacloban City is 100 percent energized and although there
are power outages, they are immediately addressed.

5.7 TRANSPORT FACILITIES


Tacloban City is accessible by land, sea and air travel. It is the gateway
to the south and north by land travel through the San Juanico Bridge. The city
built a spacious new North Bus Terminal to accommodate vehicles going to
and from Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. This new facility has improved the
land transportation system in the city and brought convenience to the riding
public.
Tacloban City, now being a highly urbanized city is the center of
aviation in the region. The Daniel Z. Romualdez Airport is located 4.3 nautical
miles southeast of Tacloban City proper, having a road distance of about ten
(10) kilometers from kilometer zero (0) origin. The airport runway is 2,140
meters long and 45 meters wide with 1,000 meter wide easements. The width
of the runway is enough to accommodate Boeing 737 planes. The airport is
being maintained and managed by the Civil Aviation Authority of the
Philippines (CAAP). At present, plans are being considered for it to become
an airport of international standards.
By sea, Tacloban City has an operational port and there is a regular
schedule of trips to Manila and Cebu City by three shipping lines namely:
Maypalad Shipping, Sulpicio Lines Inc. and Gothong Southern Shipping
Lines, Incorporated. However, Sulpicio Lines, Inc. has ceased its operations
July of 2008 to the present.
Transportation around the city proper and suburbs is provided by
PUJs, multicabs and motorcabs. In the barangays there are pedicabs plying
only within its jurisdiction as this mode of transport is not allowed in the
national highways and city roads. To travel to the nearby municipalities and
provinces in the region, there are several vans, buses and mini buses to
every point of destination.

5.8 COMMUNICATION FACILITIES


In the advent of modern communications technology, Tacloban City is
in the forefront of communications facility in the region. Three mobile phone
communication companies namely: Smart, Globe and Sun Cellular are
operating in the city. Bayan Telephones is well entrenched in the city. It is the
primary landline telephone company in the region with about 90 percent of its
connections in Tacloban City. Globe and PLDT landline telephones are other
companies operating in the city.
The Philippine Postal Corporation holds its regional office in the city is
located at Trece Martirez Street. The reliable way of communicating through
letters and written manuscripts is still prevalent, particularly for areas in the
region where there are no other available means of communications.
Altogether with other printed materials such as newspapers, tabloids and
magazines, these materials from Manila arrive on time. In addition, there are
10 local publishers of tabloids and newspapers in the city, a proof that
communications and updated information is readily available in the city.

5.9 WASTE DISPOSAL SYSTEM


Solid Waste and Sewerage System
Tacloban Citys solid waste disposal system is under the City General
Services Department. During the past two years prior to 2008, garbage
collection was privatized by the City Government, however, it was recently
reverted back to the City Government of Tacloban. The City Government use
controlled dumpsite disposal system where the process uses soil as cover.
The dumpsite is located at Brgy. Sto. Nio, a barangay in the northern
part of the city. The efficiency rate of garbage collection is 96 percent using 7
new compactors and four 10 wheeler dump trucks. There are some old
garbage trucks that are now under repair and when they are operational they
will be fielded back to improve the garbage collection service.
The city employed more garbage collectors and night sweepers to
ensure that garbage is well kept in the city proper particularly in the city
streets.
5.10

PORT

Tacloban City has one operational port under the direct operation and
supervision of the Philippine Ports Authority (PPA). This port caters to local
and foreign vessels, fishing boats and other smaller motorboats. There are
virtually countless of motor bancas stretched from the main port to Quezon
Boulevard. These motor bancas and motorboats are private but most are
used as mode of public transport for residents of nearby municipalities in
Samar and Leyte.
5.11

CITY CEMETERY

Tacloban City has 2 public cemeteries, one of which is the old public
cemetery located at El Reposo Street has been closed because of
overcrowding and congestion. The new one is located at Brgy. Basper, in the
northern part of the city, a 16 hectare lot purchased by the city government for
its public cemetery project. The development is currently being undertaken
but there is now a two hectare developed area which is presently utilized as a
free public cemetery.
On the other hand, there are four private cemeteries, the Superior
Memorial Garden, Holy Cross Memorial Park, Leyte Memorial Park and the
Chinese Cemetery.
5.12

SLAUGHTERHOUSE

There is only one public slaughterhouse/abattoir in the city and it is


located in Brgy. Diit, Tacloban City. In the year prior to 2008, the operations
of the slaughterhouse was privatized, but some requirements and conditions
97

Tacloban City Ecological Profile 2009

City Planning and Development Office

were not met by the private party, the slaughterhouse was reverted back to
the city government.
In as much as the main building, some equipment and facilities need
some repairs and improvement, the National Meat Inspection Commission
has given the City Government of Tacloban a grant to improve the whole
abattoir and convert its classification to triple A. Processes are now being
undertaken for this conversion and hopefully, in the early part of 2010,
Tacloban City Slaughterhouse shall be classified as Triple A.
5.13

MARKET

Tacloban City has 5 public markets. The main public market is located
at Tarcela Street. There is the Magallanes Public Market, Old Road Fish

qualifying the priorities set by the executive branch and notes the propriety of
funding requests, fund disposal and appropriations. In which case, pursuant to
the legislative authority granted by Republic Act 7160 (Local Government
Code of 1991) to the Sanggunian and in accord to the laws, the SP has the
authority to reject or approve the appropriations passed by the executive
branch.

6.2 FISCAL MANAGEMENT


6.2.1 Status of Financial Health
Tacloban Citys fiscal capability could be appraised through the various
sectors given the necessary funding for implementation. As priorities were
set, the next step would be appropriations for these priority activities. The
City Government is well prepared to implement these identified projects and
other obligations with consideration to the fiscal capability and revenue
collected by the City Government. Worth noting is that the income has been
slowly making an upward trend attributed to the measures employed for an
effective and efficient revenue collection.
At the most, the finances, resources and budgetary requirements for
services were properly appropriated based on its prioritization and
expediency.
The economic, social and infra-utilities services were given
sectoral appropriations to sustain the thrust of development and support the
promotion for a better life for the people of Tacloban.
The generation of income by the city government had a good turn-out
due to the stringent implementation of regulatory laws and ordinances and
measures to make more income by way of the economic enterprise divisions
of the city government. Altogether with the judicious management of the
financial capability and regular monitoring of priority projects, the City
Government of Tacloban managed to lessen the unnecessary expense and
allocated more for the development fund.
This financial competence was the result of the actual fiscal revenue
collection of 2008 which was higher than projected in 2007, will give certainty
to the fiscal strength of Tacloban City and the implementation of its programs
and projects particularly the physical facelift and development of the city as a
newly categorized Highly Urbanized City.
The Sangguniang Panglunsod passed Resolution No. 2007-10-212
approving the proposed Annual Budget for CY 2008 of the City Government
of Tacloban in the amount of P600,328,070.00 to cover the total budgetary
requirement of the city.

from 2006 representing only a little over 5 percent of increase. The trend is a
positive indication of the citys direction on revenue generation. From the
income, Tacloban City Government allotted its budgetary requirements for
obligatory services as personal services, maintenance and other operating
expenses, capital outlay and special purpose appropriations.

6.2.3 Fiscal Autonomy


Tacloban City is doing well with its income generation scheme although
it could not be categorically stated that it is not IRA dependent because it is
part of the total revenue considered for its expenditure program. Worth noting
is the fact that for the FY 2008, there is an almost equal sharing of revenue
because the local revenue collected surpassed the IRA by P1,184,462.00,
which is about .40%.

104

Tacloban City Ecological Profile 2009

City Planning and Development Office

The present thrust of the local government is to improve its policies and
activities for effective and efficient income generation. Tacloban City is
enjoying a positive economic turn and with it comes more income and
revenue for its various sectoral obligations.

6.2.4 Actual Expenditures


The City Government of Tacloban has defined its priority activities and
from there, funds were sourced for their implementation. For FY 2008, the
treasury allocated and sourced the budgetary requirements for the defined
sectors, most of which were intended for the socio-economic programs of the

DEVELOPMENT LEGISLATION
6.3.1 Inventory of resolutions passed and ordinances enacted

To be at pace with the rapid growth of the city as envisioned by the


present administration, the Sangguniang Panlungsod and its personnel
earnestly maximize meager resources vis-a-vis indisputable constraints such
as, but not limited to, the lack of personnel and supplies in the performance
and discharge of its statutory mandate. Consistent with its intrinsic function as
the check and balance in local governance, the Sangguniang Panlungsod
exerts equal powers with the Executive Branch. It performs/discharges its
functions through parliamentary procedures set in motion during regular and
special sessions at least once a week.
