Iloilo City Mayor Jed Patrick Mabilogis set to create and organize a new research and development office out to establish a concrete demographic profile of Iloilo City.
But Mabilog said he is not hiring new employees to man thenew office but instead, will get employees from other city government offices to work on the demographic profile that will entail a comprehensive survey on city households.
The city development planning office under Jose Roni Peñalosa will initially start the new office, starting with the city government employees with no housing unit of their own.
The city chief executive said the Commission on Audit has already given the green light for the sale of the city government-owned lot in Pavia, Iloilo at P2,500 per square meter, a much lower cost of the early P3,773 per squaremeter.
Mabilog said the proceed from the Pavia lot sale will be used to buy another property intended for the city government employees as they are the original recipients of the low cost housing project in Pavia.
The new office will conduct a survey of the employee-recipient as beneficiary of the housing project of the city. By Lydia Pendon.
