Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo and City Treasurer Cristina M. Merced commended the city’s local taxpayers for religiously paying their dues to the government.
In a joint statement, Mayor Remollo and Ms. Merced said that “the Local Government Unit of Dumaguete expresses its gratitude and congratulations to the City’s Top 20 Individual and Top 20 Corporate Taxpayers for the years 2018 and 2019.”
“While it has been often said that taxes are the lifeblood of any government, the taxpayers’ voluntary act of paying the fair share of taxes underscores their concern for the common good and a manifestation of their confidence in the city administration.”
