A new landmark of Ormoc City was formally inaugurated yesterday April 26. The inauguration started with the traditional Monday flag raising ceremony.

While the mass was being recited, business transaction of the offices was normal. Several visitors were from different municipalities of the 4th district of Leyte. BM Deborah Bertulfo represented Leyte Gov. Jericho Petilla.

The completion of the building took about 10 years. The plan was set and the ground breaking ceremony was made during the time of Congressman Eufrocino M. Codilla Sr. when he was the city mayor. The original 4-storey building was redesigned into 3-storey when Mayor Carmelo Locsin seated in power as the local chief executive in Ormoc and started the construction. After a term of office of Locsin, Mayor Eric �Beboy� C. Codilla became in power and continue the construction. Before his 2nd term ended as the local chief executive, the new city hall was inaugurated.

It cost 331, 000, 000 pesos. The edifice has great structural features. It is called the green building for it is an environment friendly. It used energy-saving resources more efficiently. It has exterior metal cladding, inverter type conditioning units, modular office partition, workstation office furniture, mechanical type mobile filing system, compact fluorescent lamps and other state of the art facilities.

Mayor Beboy Codilla said that New Ormoc City Hall is environment friendly, Ormoc was awarded as a business-friendly city and his administration is a political friendly because he invited all his political opponents to attend the inauguration. He also recalled that he once had a cease-fire to his political opponents last year when he gave recognition to the former city officials. He further said in his inaugural speech that the city hall is not his property. It is the property of all Ormocanons. �Whoever wins in this coming election can have a seat in the new city hall.� He concluded in saying �Congratulations to all of us.

I have read that the old city hall will be converted to a museum. Not sure if it's going to push through.
