TACLOBAN CITY  – Relocatees and residents of the Northern Barangays will no longer have to go to City Hall at Kanhuraw Hill to avail of frontline services, this after the City Government under Mayor Cristina G. Romualdez opened an extension office at Tacloban North that will cater to the needs of the  15 permanent resettlement sites  and adjacent villages.

The Extension Office located at Brgy. Sto. Niño was the fulfillment of a promise made by Mayor Romualdez during the recent visit of President Rodrigo Roa to Tacloban to inaugurate the government housing project in New Hope.

During the inauguration last January the Mayor disclosed that the City Government will put up a satellite office near the  resettlement sites to bring much  needed services to resettled families.

The City Hall Extension Office started operations on April 10 and is open from 8 to 5pm, Monday to Friday. Different City Departments and offices, such as the City Social Welfare and Development Office, City Housing and Community Development Office, City General Services Office, City Civil Registrar’s Office and City Veterinary Office, among others  maintain a desk at the Extension Office to cater to the needs of the residents .

The office right at the “doorstep” of the permanent resettlement sites, namely GMA Kapuso Village, UN Habitat, Global Medic, Lions, UNDP, Villas Sofia and Diana, North Hill Arbour, Guadalupe, Greendale, Ridgeview, New Hope, PICE Housing Project, SM Cares New Kawayan and Core Shelters will bring the same basic services of the City Hall a good 13 kilometers away. More than 8,000 families live in resettlement sites in Tacloban North.

Site coordinators of each of the permanent housing sites, aside from conducting profiling activities are also stationed there to promptly respond to the concerns of relocatees. Data culled from the profiling activities will be stored in a database that will be kept at the extension Office.

The building features a market facility at the ground level were local producers and farmers can display their goods.  A market day is held every Saturday in the area. – HENRY JAMES G. ROCA/CIO

    Great functional building to serve the 15 resettlement sites. I hope there is a plan for some pavement in the front as it gets muddy during rainy days.
