Mayor Beng Climaco has issued an executive order, designating City Legal Officer Jesus C. Carbon Jr. as officer-in-charge of the City Administrator’s Office vice Dr. Elmeir E. Apolinario.

In her EO No. BC191-2016 dated June 30, reorganizing the City Administrator’s Office, Climaco cited the imperative need to designate, without additional compensation, Atty. Carbon as OIC-city administrator, a position Dr. Apolinario held since last year when then City Administrator Antonio Orendain Jr. resigned from government service.

The reorganization, according to the chief executive said, will allow Dr. Apolinario to fully perform his multifarious duties and responsibilities as City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management officer, which necessitates him to be in the frontline during and in the aftermath of man-made and natural disasters and calamities.

The mayor likewise cited the need for the assistant city administrators, Dr. Jose Genaro R. Yap-Aizon and Marie Angelique C. Go, to function fully in order to provide support functions to Atty. Carbon as OIC of said office.

Thus, under EO No. BC191-2016, Dr. Aizon, assistant city administrator for City Affairs, was directed to take charge of the planning and administrative operation of the office as well as the coordination with other agencies in the implementation of city ordinances, traffic rules and regulations.

Aizon is also responsible for the general implementation of work programs and activities of the department under the supervision, direction and control of the OIC.

He is going to review as well the organizational assignments of personnel and evaluate the performances of the employees in coordination with the heads of the component divisions of the departments.

On the other hand, Go, assistant city administrator for Economic Enterprise, was directed to take charge of the planning, maintenance and operation of the economic enterprises such as, but not limited to, the Main Public Market, Sta. Cruz Market and Commercial Complex, the slaughterhouse, public cemeteries, Paseo del Mar and the Integrated Bus Terminal (IBT).

Go will also take responsibility for the general implementation of the work programs and activities of all economic enterprises of the city under the supervision, direction and control of the OIC.

Meanwhile, Mayor Climaco has issued a memorandum, designating Assistant Budget Officer Ferdinando A. Alvarez as officer-in-charge of the City Budget Office effective July 1, following the retirement from government service of City Budget Officer Virginia San Agustin Gara.

Climaco directed all department heads, officials and employees of the City Government of Zamboanga to extend their full support to the newly designated officers-in-charge.— Vic Larato
